Johann Löbe, a farmer, and his wife Margaretha are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Kaneau in Household No. 3 along with a note [errantly published under Household No. 4] that they settled in the colony of Basel in 1768.
The 1767 census records that Johann Löbe came from the German village of Benzingerode.
There are no known surviving male lines of this Löbe family among the Volga German colonies.
