Balthasar was born in 1780 in the village of Heuchelheim in the district of Bergzabern in Bayern(Germany) to Johann Hieb and Sibilla (Schwartz) Hieb. He was the fifth of their 10 children. Balthasar was baptized in 1780. 
Balthasar married twice: See Research Note.
On February 2, 1802, at the age of 22, Balthasar married Barbara Kirsch (1779-unknown) in the nearby village of Drusweiler.
Jacob (1820-unknown): Married Friederike Deile (1819-1880), 8 children.
Michael (1822-unknown): Married Sophia Wetzler (1822-1874), 10 children.
In 1807, around the age of 27, Balthasar, with his parents, immigrated from Heuchelheim to the village of Freudental in the the Glückstal district of the Odessa area and Black Sea region of South Russia. The family then relocated to the nearby village of Neudorf when it was established in 1809.
1816 Neudorf Census: Age 34, living in Neudorf, South Russia with his wife and 4 children.
Brent Goodman (5/23/2021): Records clearly show a (1st) marriage to Barbara Kirsch in Drusweiler (near Heuchelheim) as well as birth records of 3 children. However, the 1816 Neudorf census shows him married to a Margaretha. Some genealogists show her with a surname of Lehr, but no evidence can currently be found to support that.
