Widower Andreas Geisel, a cloth weaver (Tuchweber), is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 59 along with a note that he settled in the colony of Schaffhausen in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Andreas Geisel came from the German village of Grohnde.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Geisel family among the Volga German colonies.
