Widow Elisabeth Weigandt and her son Johannes (age 18) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

Johannes settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 8 July 1767 where he is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 44. By 1798, Johannes moved to the colony of Anton where he is recorded on the 1798 census in Household No. An18.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that this Weigandt family came from the German region of Isenburg.
