Johan Jacob Stepha Weÿle [sic], son of farmer Jacob Adam Weÿle from Neu-Isenburg near Franckfurth on the Maÿn & Anna Margaretha Kinnerl, was baptized on 16 May 1766 in St. Jacob's Lutheran Church in Lübeck.
Jakob Weil, a farmer, his wife Anna, and son Johann (age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard a Russian packet-boat under the command of Midshipman Mankensey.
Jakob Weil, his wife Anna Margaretha, and children (Johann Leonhard, age 7½; Anna Katharina, age 7; Anna Margaretha, age 2) are recorded on the 1775 census of Beideck in Household No. 60.
Jakob Weil and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Beideck in Household No. Bd06.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that this Jakob Weil came from the German region of Regensburg, so he may not be the same one who is recorded in the register of St. Jacob's Lutheran Church in Lübeck.
