Anton Lea, a miller (Müller), his wife Ottilie, and daughter Maria (age 9-months) are recorded on a list of Beauregard recruits appended to the 1767 census. It is not known in which colony they settled.

The 1767 census records that Anton Lea came from the German village of Stein.

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