Widow Anna Haberkorn, her sons Johann[es] (and his wife Maria), and Johann [Adam] (age 16) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Anna died at some point. Her sons settled in the Volga German colony of Göbel on 20 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in household No. 31 along with Johannes' new wife Magdalena Ziegler and widow Barbara Ziegler (age 58), Magdalena's mother.

The 1798 census of Semenovka records Johann Adam Haberkorn from Göbel in Household No. Se41.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Haberkorn came from the German village of Tating [?] in Mainz.
