Tobias Weber, a single weaver (Weber), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adam Drath.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 93 along with the Adam Köhler family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Weber and Köhler families.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Tobias Weber came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony).
