Johann Joseph Horn, a farmer, his wife Maria Margaretha, and cildren (Anna Maria, age 13; Johann Christian, age 11; Anna Helena, age 1) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard the Danish galliot Engel Rafail under the command of Skipper Konstadt.

Joseph Horn, his wife Maria Margreta, and children (Anna Maria, age 14; Christian Mathias, age 12; Catarina Elisabet, born en route) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Joseph Horn, a farmer, his [new?] wife Anna Margaretha, and children (Anna Margaretha [sic], age 16; Christian Mattias, age 13) are recorded on the 1767 census of Laub in Household No. 45. They had settled in Laub on 15 September 1767.

Descendants of this family moved to the daughter colony of Neu-Laub before 1862.

The 1767 census records that Joseph Horn came from the German village of Kloster in the district of Böhmen (Bohemia).
