Johannes Weigand & Apollonia Steiner were married on 11 March 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen.

Johann[es] Weigandt, a farmer, his wife Appolonia, and son Peter (age 7) arrived from Rewal at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 May 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

Johannes Weigand, a brewer (Bierbrauer), and his wife Appolonia settled in the Volga German colony of Husaren on 6 June 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 31.

In 1792, Johann Weigand and his family moved from Husaren to Sewald.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Weigandt came from the German region of Fulda. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Hammelburg.
