Hans Adam Wenzerich married 12 February 1725 in Schriesheim to Anna Klara Schneider. She died in Schriesheim in 1734. Adam married again in Schriesheim on 9 November 1735 to Anna Maria Würtz. She was born in 1705 in Schriesheim. They have a son Johannes who was born in Schriesheim on 11 September 1743.       

Adam, Anna Maria, and their son moved to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein). They arrived in Anton on 7 September 1764 and are recorded there on the 1767 Census in Household No. 17. Johannes appears to have had only daughters, so this surname does not continue among the German colonies along the Volga.
