There are two Hohl families that settled in the Volga German colony of Bauer on 20 July 1766. Their relationship to each other is not recorded on the 1767 census.

(1) Max Hohl, a farmer, and his family are recorded on the 1767 census of Bauer in Household No. 3.

The 1767 census records that Max Hohl came from the German village of Winterburg in the Kurpfalz region.

This is probably the Marcus Hohl who was born in Ellstadt and moved to Dietel in 1765. He married his second wife, unnamed Heuser of the Reformed faith, while in route to Russia.

(2) Johann Georg Hohl, a single butcher (Fleischer), is recorded on the 1767 census of Bauer in Household No. 39.

The widow and children of Friedrich Hohl from Bauer are recorded on the 1798 census of Lauwe in Household No. Lw25.
