Katharina Schwab (age 12) is recorded on a list of Beauregard recruits appended to the 1767 census of the Volga German colonies in Household No. 5 along with her stepfather Christoph Wasen. It is assumed that she settled in the Volga German colony of Zürich along with the Wasen family.

The 1767 census does not record from where Katharina Schwab came.

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