Discussion & Documentation: 

Wilhelm Augustus, an innkeeper (Schankwirt), and his wife Katharina settled in the Volga German colony of Kamenka on 16 September 1764 [this date is probably an error as Kamenka wasn't founded until 1765]. They are recorded on the 1767 census of Kamenka in Household No. 100.

The 1767 census records that Wilhelm Augustus came from the German region of Brandenburg.
