Orphaned sisters Susanna Christina Bruschner (age 11) and Elisabeth Bruschner (age 5) are recorded on the list of Beauregard recruits (Household No. 109) that is attached to the 1767 census of the Volga German colonies. They are recorded in the household of Franz Waas. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Bruschner and Waas families.

The Waas family settled in the colony of Ober-Monjou, and it is presumed that the Bruschner sisters settled there as well.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Bruschner sisters came.

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