Georg Ludwig Wiesener & Maria Christina Diehl were married on 20 March 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen.

Ludwig Wiesener, a stonemason, and his wife Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 July 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Jacob Bauer.

Several Wiesner children are listed among those of Johann Ludwig Derillion in Household No. 32 on the 1767 census of Kamenka. Georg (age 21), Valentin (age 15), Ottilia (age 11), Maria Margaretha (age 8), and Barbara (age 5) are not Derillions, but rather Wiesners according to later records.
