Discussion & Documentation: 

Kaspar Weigandt and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 16 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 72.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Kaspar Weigandt was a hosier while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker). Both documents record that Kaspar Weigandt came from the German district of Isenburg.
