Nikolaus Burg, a farmer, his wife Margaretha, and son Nikolaus (age 21) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 112 along with a note that they settled in the colony of Nieder-Monjou in 1768.

In 1786, Nikolaus Burg and his family moved from Nieder-Monjou to the Caucasus.

The 1767 census records that Nikolaus Burg came from the German region of Hessen.

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