Martin Schwieger, a tailor (Schneider), and his wife Kunigunde are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Beauregard in Household No. 47.

It is not known in which colony they settled.

The 1767 census records that Martin Schwieger came from the German village of Bechtolegaden [?].

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