Christian Hausmann, a single cobbler, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Die Neue Freiheit von Bremen under the command of Skipper Steinhauer.
He settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 5 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 22 along with new wife Anna Elisabeth.
The 1767 census records that Christian Hausmann came from the German town of Leipzig in Sachsen (Saxony).
There are no known surviving male lines of this Hausmann family among the Volga German colonies.
