Johann Heinrich Weber was born 26 Feb 1749 in Oberklingen, the son of Johann Heinrich and Anna Catharina Weber.  Johann Heinrich travelled to Russia as a single man, and appears on the same ship and and transport as his cousin Anna Maria Weber. Anna Maria Weber was the daughter of Johann Heinrich Weber of Oberklingen and Elisabeth Christina Sophia Kroh of König. Anna Maria travelled to Russia along with her first husband Johann Heinrich Röttger and their children. 

Johann Heinrich Weber and his wife Maria Elisabeth are reported on the Frank First Settlers List in Household #102. Johann Heinrich Röttger died during the trip, and Anna Maria married Michael Heimbüchner.  The Heimbüchner couple and Anna Maria's children from her first marriage are reported in Household #101.  

The Weber family can be traced back five generations to Johannes Weber, born about 1560 in Hering.
