There are two Weber families that settled in Preuss that are believed to be father and son. They both settled in the Volga German colony of Preuss on 15 July 1767.
(1) Johannes Weber (age 49), a farmer, and his wife Susanna are recorded on the 1767 census of Preuss in Household No. 66.
(2) Johann Weber (age 25), a farmer, and his wife Katharina are recorded on the 1767 census of Preuss in Household No. 66.
The 1767 census records that both of these families came from the French village of Dalow [?] in the Champagne region.
