Discussion & Documentation:
Georg Leribel, a miller (Müller), and his wife Johanna settled in the Volga German colony of Ober-Monjou on 3 August 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 61 along with orphan Sophia Sack (age 14). The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Leribel and Sack families.
The 1767 census records that Georg Leribel came from the German village of Breitengüßbach in the Bamberg region.
