According to the Neu-Isenburg Ortsfamilienbuch, Anthoine Delouze (born in Saint-Privat-de-Vallongue, Lozère, Languedoc-Roussillon, France) and his wife Anne Marguerite Engel had two children, both born in Neu-Isenburg: (1) Christian Louïs Deleouze, born 2 December 1744; and (2) Jeanne Marie Deleouze, born 25 February 1747.

Christian married Maria Eva Kayser on 10 April 1766 in Büdingen, and Jeanne Marie (Johanna Maria in German) married Johann Nicolaus Scheuermann on 11 April 1766 in Büdingen.

Christian Dellos and his mother Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 July 1766 aboard a Russian ship under the command of Lieutenant Ilyin.

Christian Delym [sic], a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife Maria settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 17 August 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 74 along with the orphaned children of Heinrich Horst. The 1767 census does not record a realtionship between the Delym and Horst families.
