Johann Lang, a farmer, settled in the Volga German colony of Fischer on 28 July 1765. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 12 along with his new wife, Anna Susanna.
The 1767 census records that Johann Lang came from the Polish village of Filis [?] and that Anna Susanna came from Prussia "errinnert sich nicht an den Geburtsort" (but doesn't remember the place of her birth).
