Georg Konrad Weber was born 6 December 1732 in Groß-Bieberau. He married on 11 April 1754 in Ober-Ramstadt to Susanna Maria Schmidt. She was born 12 May 1727 in Hottenbach.

At some point, they moved to Wembach. Georg Konrad Weber, a farmer (Ackersmann), his wife Susanna Maria, and his children (Johann Balthasar, age 10, Katharina Margaretha, age 7; Peter, age 4; and Maria Elisabeth, age 2) immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), arriving in Fridericia on 27 September 1760 and settling the the colony of Julianaheede. They remained in Denmark until 7 January 1765 when they departed for Russia.

They settled in Russia in the Volga German colony of Beideck where they are recorded on the 1775 Census in Household No. 7. In 1790, Konrad Weber and his family moved from Beideck to Laub and are recorded there on the 1798 Census in Household No. Lb09.

The 1798 census of Stahl am Tarlyk records Balthasar Weber from Beideck in Household No. St01.
