Georg Weibrig and his wife Anna Maria are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Ober-Monjou and are recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Om41.

Johannes Weiberich and his brother Sebastian are recorded on the 1834 census of Ober-Monjou in Household No. Om41 along with a note that Johannes had died there in 1825.
