-- Haberkorn and Anna --

Anna --, widow of a man surnamed Haberkorn, arrived in Russia 4 July 1766, having sailed from Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany aboard an English frigate, the Love and Unity. She came from the Electorate of Mainz in Germany and was listed as Catholic.

She came with a thirteen-year-old son named Johann. In the next entry of the passengers' list was another Johann Haberkorn, listed with the same document number as Anna, and therefore, somehow related. This Johann was married to Maria --. His age and relationship to Anna is not specified. It is interesting to note that a 25-year-old Johannes Haberkorn appears on the First Settlers List
in Göbel, Saratov, Russia with a sixteen-year-old brother Johann Adam in 1767. This Johannes is shown with a wife named Magdalena.

As Haberkorn is not a common name and the only ones by that name in the Kulberg List or the First Settlers Lists are the ones noted above, it is likely that Anna's teenaged son Johann and Johannes's brother Johann Adam were the same person (despite the slight inconsistency in ages) and that the Johann in the second entry and Johannes Haberkorn were the same. As Anna does not appear in any of the First Settlers Lists, it is likely that Anna had died after arrival and before the family settled in a colony. Also, because of the difference in Johann/Johannes's wives' names, it is also likely that his first wife Maria died during that same time period of transition and he remarried to Magdalena before settling at Göbel (though, the possibility also exists that he had one wife named Maria Magdalena). Since Johannes is listed in the First Settlers List as coming from an unidentified town named Tating in the Electorate of Mainz, Anna is probably also came from that same town or somewhere near it.


Johannes and Magdalena's children are:

  1. Johannes Haberkorn, born about 1742 in the Electorate of Mainz (specifically, the unidentified town of Tating), probably married 1) Maria -- and 2) Magdalena Ziegler (b. abt. 1744 to -- Ziegler and Barbara --, bur. in Dec 1815 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia), settled in Göbel, Saratov, Russia on 20 June 1767, listed as Catholic and a farmer, listed in Göbel in 1798 as having been ill for a long time and unable to work.
  2. Johann Adam Haberkorn, born between 1751 and 1755 in the Electorate of Mainz (probably also in Tating), initially settled in Göbel, Saratov, Russia on 20 June 1767 but moved to Semenovka, Saratov, Russia by 1798, married Anna Margaretha Müller (b. abt. 1757, m. 1) Kilian König), died in 1821.
