BUSS, Frank(b. MA, abt. 1805-6)
Posted by: KAREN CHATFIELD (ID *****5855) Date: April 15, 2002 at 21:02:13
  of 686

I am seeking information on this family:
Frank BUSS, born in MA. abt 1805 or 1806, who married a "Leonora" (born abt 1810)
Their know Children:
Alfred, b. abt 1830 in NY, and married to Martha Chatfield from Ohio.
Charles W., b. abt 1849 in IL
Martha A., b. abt 1852 in IL

Alfred and Martha had the following:
Solon, b. abt 1855 in Calif.
Elmer F., b. abt 1858 in Calif.
Charles A., b. abt 1860

They came to California in 1864, and the Buss Family at one time had a "roadhouse". In the 1870 Census, all of the above people were in "Foster's Bar Township" of Yuba County, CA. Frank was a teamster, Alfred was a farmer, Charles(son of Frank) was a miner--gold country in that area.
The Buss Family later moved to San Diego County and opened a creamery.
I would like to get in touch with this side of the family to find out more about Martha Chatfield Buss, and her brother Solon Chatfield who came out West with her and her family.....Thanks, Karen Chatfield
