Heinrich Gottlieber, a farmer, his wife Dorothea, and son Heinrich Jakob (age 8) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 33 along with Dorothea's sons from a previous marriage (Heinrich Meier, age 18; Franz Joseph Meier, age 15).

The Meier brothers settled in the colony of Meinhard, and it is presumed that the Gottliebers settled there as well.

The 1767 census records that Heinrich Gottlieber came from the German village of Clausthal.

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