August Christoph Kind, a single soldier (Unteroffizier), is recorded in an appendix to the 1767 census of Paulskaya in Household No. 1.
He subsequently resettled to the colony of Kind, and it is after him that the colony received its name.
In 1783, August Kind and his family moved from Kind to Paulskaya.
The 1767 census records that August Christoph Kind came from the German village of Ren in the Hannover region.
