Samuel Weimann, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife Anna Katharina settled in the Volga German colony of Schäfer on 1 August 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 3.

In 1795, Andreas Weimann moved from Schäfer to Katharinenstadt.

The death of Samuel Weimann in 1826 is recorded on the 1834 census of Schäfer in Household No. 69.

Rudolph Weimann, son of Samuel Weimann, is recorded on the 1834 census of Schäfer in Household No. 69 along with a note that he relocated to the colony of Katharinenstadt in 1834.

The 1767 census records that Samuel Weimann came from the German region of Reitling [perhaps Reutlingen].
