Johann Jakob [Haas] (age 10) and his siblings (Johann, age 9; Christina, age 2½) arrived from Lübeck along with their mother Elisabeth and her husband Jakob Stuler at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the hooker Anna Katharina under the command of Skipper Adolph Scharpenberg.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 19 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 36.
The 1767 census records that their step-father Jakob Stuler came from the German village of Augsburg in the Schwaben region.
