Widow Anna Maria Beier is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Kaneau in Household No. 64 along with a note that she settled in the colony of Schönchen in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Anna Maria Beier came from the German regino of Jena [in Thüringen?].

There are no known surviving male lines of this Beier family among the Volga German colonies.
