Samuel Weimann, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife Anna Katharina settled in the Volga German colony of Schäfer on 1 August 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 3.
In 1795, Andreas Weimann moved from Schäfer to Katharinenstadt.
The 1767 census records that Samuel Weimann came from the German region of Reitling [perhaps Reutlingen].
