[Heinrich] Wilhelm Weingarten and his wife Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

They are recorded in Household No. 89 on a list of Beauregard recruits that is attached to the 1767 census. A note records that they relocated to the Volga German colony of Kind in 1768.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Wilhelm Weingarten was a farmer from the German region of Runkel. The 1767 census records that he was a weaver (Leineweber) from the German village of Baumen [?] in the Runkel region.
