Johannes Bremmer, a farmer, and his wife settled in the Volga German colony of Anton on 1 September 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 52.

Widower Johannes Bremmer is recorded on the 1798 census of Anton in Household No. An34.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Bremmer came from the German village of Spangenberg in the Hessen-Kassel region.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this Bremmer family among the Volga German colonies.
