Extractions of all Volhynian records are on our site.  Since they are subject to error, you should confirm all data from microfilms of originals.  A good place to start is the first section on this page http://www.sggee.org/research/PublicDatabases.html 

It seems you have some very accurate data already.  To find the full family of your Christian Weiss, use the birth link on the above page and search for Weiss as the surname with Stephan as the mother's surname.  You will find 8 children (a ninth is listed but it is a duplicate).  You can also find their marriage record in 1858.

You can do similar searches for your Neumann and related families.  

Note that your Anoufuka should be Antonufka or Antonowka or Antonuwka.

I found a Christian Weiss born in Paris, Bessarabia in 1837 but I do not see what evidence exists that indicates this is the same person as your ancestor.  Perhaps there is something in your family lore that proves this but it should be investigated further.  You see, Bessarabia is in modern day Moldova, not Germany.  Though not impossible, a northward migration from there to Volhynia would be highly unusual.  

Gustopole sounds like it might be a corruption of Kostopol.  This town was in Volhynia which was part of Poland between WW I and WW II.  There was an Antonuwka a short distance NE of Kostopol.
