There are two Weber families that settled in the Volga German colony of Rohleder on 14 June 1766.  The 1767 census records that both of them came from the German village of Zuckau near Danzig, but their relationship to each other is not recorded.

(2) Thomas Weber (age 18), a single farmer, is recorded on the 1767 Rohleder census in Household No. 41.
