[Johann] Heinrich Weber, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

Joh. Heinr. Weber is recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Katharinenstadt (No. 39). He is recorded on the 1798 census of Boisroux in Household No. Bx54.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Heinrich Weber came from the German region of Köln.

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