Johann Wilhelm Büge, a student, and his wife Amalia Wilhelmine Concordia Bohn settled in the Volga German colony of Katharinenstadt on 27 August 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 18.
The 1767 census records that Johann Wilhelm Büge came from the German village of Rieben near Mittelmark in the Brandenburg region.
There are no surviving male descendants of this family among the Volga German colonies.
