Discussion & Documentation: 

Philipp Wasen, a farmer, and his wife Appolonia are recorded on a list of Beauregard recruits that is appended to the 1767 census in Household No. 86 along with a note that they settled in the Volga German colony of Ober-Monjou in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Philipp Wasen came from the German village of Bensheim [?].

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