Discussion & Documentation: 

Philipp [Jakob] Württemberger, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife Maria settled in the Volga German colony of Walter on 25 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 26.

The 1767 census records that Philipp Wittenberger came from the French village of Landau.

The 1834 census of Walter records in 1822 the death of Philipp Jakob Württemberger in Household No. 45 with no surviving male heirs. Consequently this family does not continue among the Volga German colonies.
