There are two Keilmann families recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux. Their relationship to each other is not recorded, but they are assumed to be father and son.

(1) Johann Keilmann (age 55), a farmer, his wife Martha, and sons (Paul Konrad, age 23; Johannes, age 19) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 24.

Son Johannes is recorded on the 1798 census of Meinhard in Household No. Mn18.

(2) Konrad Keilmann, a farmer, and his wife Martha are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 35 along with a note that they relocated to the colony of Meinhard in 1768.

Konrad Keilmann is recorded on the 1798 census of Meinhard in Household No. Mn 01.

Konrad Keilmann's widow and descendants are recorded on the 1834 census of Meinhard in Households No. 3 and 9.

Johann Keilmann is recorded on the 1834 census of Orlovskaya in Household No. 102 with a note that he moved to Meinhard in 1827. He is actually recorded on the 1834 census of Paulskaya in Household No. 55.

The 1767 census records that both of these Keilmann families came from the German village of Iba.
