Konrad Weigandt, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 29 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 51. A note on the 1767 census records that son Heinrich Peter Weigandt moved to the colony of Messer in 1768.

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