Michael Lüsemann, a single farmer, settled in the Volga German colony of Frank and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 62.

The 1767 census records that Michael Lüsemann came from the German village of Weisenbach in the Freie Adelprovinz der alten Ritter. This could be the village of Weisenbach in Kreis Rhein-Neckar of Baden-Württemberg.

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