Discussion & Documentation: 

Georg Abraham Eberhard, son of Johann Andreas Eberhard & Anna Margaretha Traub, married in Schreisheim on 11 February 1754 to Maria Barbara Weber, daughter of Georg Weber of Nußloch. The births of three of their children are recorded in the parish register of Schriesheim: (1) Dorothea, born 29 April 1755, died 16 May 1755; (2) Johann Georg, born 11 May 1756; and (3) Anna Catharina, born 12 January 1759.

They migrated in 1760 to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein).  In 1765, they joined those who were immigrating to Russia.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Moor on 1 July 1766 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 4.

The Eichhorns record that Georg Eberhard came from the German village of Schriesheim, Oberamt Heidelberg, Kurpfalz. The 1767 census records that he came from the German region of Kurpfalz.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this family among the Volga German colonies.
