HELP: Feist Family Migration From Germany to Russia

Around 1809, the following two FAIST/FEIST families migrated from Germany to Russia:

BERNHARD FAIST & ANNA MARIA WALZ traveled from Kuppenheim, Germany, to Strassburg, Russia, around 1809, along with their children (Mathaus – age 19, Johann – age 17, Fidelis – age 14, Elizabeth – age 10, twins Joseph & Gregory – age 8, Joseph? – age 7, Maria – age 6, Maria? - age 5, & Johannes – age 4)
Bernhard's father was JAKOB FAIST.
I found records that show Bernhard's brothers and sisters all died as children.

NICOLAUS FEIST & MARGARETHA SCHALL traveled from Ebersbach, Germany, to Strassburg, Russia, around 1809, along with their children (Johannes – age 5 & Alois – age 3)
Nicolaus' father was JOHANNES FAIST.
I cant find any record that Nicolaus had any brothers or sisters.

Does anyone out there have any genealogy records pertaining to the FAIST/FEIST family that include the above two families, which show some connection? I doubt that it's just coincidence that the above two family lines migrated to Russia during the same time period, and then also migrated to North Dakota during the same time period.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. You can e-mail me directly at: FEIST_JUNG@YAHOO.CO.KR
