    Transcript: Johann Adam Hieb (*ca 1746 Leinsweiler/Landau-Pf, son of Johannes Hieb and Maria Catharina; +ca 1826 Neudorf) of 1816 NRL:28, father of the Hieb families, moved to landless 1816 NRL:104 with his son, Johann Adam Hieb Jr (+8.1.1861 N, *9.12.1792 Heuchelheim; m1 ca 1816 to Magdalena Kirschenmann [1816 NRL:32, age 19; +18.9.1836, *ca 1796 Durrweiler-Wü]; m2 on 18.1.1837 to Katharina Reuther [1858 age 40, *ca 1818, daughter of Friedrich Jacob Reuter & Katharina Ritter of 1816 NRL:3 – see Reuter, Joh. Friedr.]; in 1858 NRL:218).
    Johann Adam Hieb Sr’s wife was Sibilla Schwartz (*31.7.1750 Heuchelheim, daughter of Heinrich Schwartz and Katharina Elisabetha nee ?); they married on 23.4.1771 in Heuchelheim-Pf. It is assumed that Sibilla may have emigrated with the Hieb family, but died before 1811. Based on a letter from Russia to Elsass, dated in 1808, written by Johann Adam Hieb to his brother-in-law, Georg Koch, in Selz-El (Joseph Height, Homesteaders on the Steppe, p. 50), the Hieb family, after arriving in 1807, was initially placed in the colony of Freudental (12 miles west of Odessa; 9 miles east of Moldovia). The Hieb family relocated to Neudorf when it was established in 1809.
