EUROPEANS

The "Butzes are a family of hammersmiths originating in Dombach near Camber in the Taunus hills, Hessen (Germany). Four Butzes, maybe brothers, came to the Hunsruck mountains in the late 1720's." [JBK] -Johan Heinrich Butz and his wife Anna Eva (____), mentioned at Grafenbacher Hutte between 1729 and 1732 (.) -Christian Butz and his wife Anna Barbara ROTH, mentioned at Grafenbacher Hutte between 1729 to 1731, at Asbacher Hutte in 1732 (and) near Bischofsdhron in 1737. -Johannes Butz and his wife Anna Margaretha (____), mentioned at Grafenbacher Hutte in 1731, at Katzenlocher Hammer from 1737 to 1742 (and) at Sensweiler Hammer in 1758. -Johann George Butz and his wife Maria Margaretha PAULI, mentioned at Katzenlocher Hammer between 1737 and 1742, at Asbacher Hutte from 1746 on. Maria Margaretha (PAULI) died at Kastle Iron Forge December 12, 1772, and on (August) 24, 1773(...) the widower Johan Georg Butz was married again at Birkenfeld. He was now a hammersmith at Abentheuerhutte and his second wife was Maria Elisabeth Herschbach of Birkenfeld." JBK: Jane Butts Kilgore, descendant of James Beaver BUTTS who was a son of John Henry BUTZ / BUTTS and grandson of the married couple Johann Wilhelm (John William) BUTZ and Maria Magdalena KURTZ BUTZ, 2007. Researched from German records of the employess of the Iron Forges. FamilyIsHere yahoo com

BUTZ PARENTS (of Johann Wilhelm / John William BUTZ)
Families often tried to stay together and did the same kind of work at this time in history. It appears possible that the above Christian Butz and his wife Anna Barbara Roth who were in Asbacher Hutte in 1732 could either be the parents of or a brother or cousin to Johann Georg Butz. The first 3 above mentioned men were all at Grafenbacher Hutte some time between 1729 and 1732. Personally, I suspect that Johann Georg Butz is the son of 1 of those 3 mentioned men, most likely Christian, as both our Johann Wilhelm (John William) and a Christian Butz, immigrated to Ringwood, NJ and later went to Goshenhoppen (named Bally currently) and other places in Pennsylvania and worked in iron forges. [See Notes below for details.] Also, Johann William named his first son John George Butz. Often children were given the first names of their fathers and or grandfathers and we have both the names of Johann and Christian in our particular senario. The other "John" named Johannes Butz and his wife Anna Margaretha _ do not appear to have been in Asbacher Hutte and both Christian and Johann Georg were in Asbacher Hutte within 14 years of one another (Christian 1732 and Johann Georg 1746 on.). Our Johann Wilhelm (John William) Butz does not have children births recorded until Sep. 1762. They married young then and most men were married by the time they were about 20. If he was 20 or 21 at the time of his first child's birth then he would have been born around 1742. Johann Georg Butz is listed as being at Asbacher Hutte from 1746 on with the next record being his wife's death at Kastel iron forge in 1772. Since Johann Wilhelm is listed as being from Asbacher Hutte at the time of his marriage (1746 on) and no apparent record appearing until his wife's death in 1772 then it is very likely that Johann Georg Butz is Johann Wilhelm Butz's father. mmvonville hotmail

[POTENTIAL Generation 2 in Europe: I...I...I...I...I...I)
BUTZ, THE FATHER
" BUTZ FR of pos(sible) sons:Johan Heinrich,Christian,Johannes+Johann Georg BUTZ of ?Dombach Hessen 2 Prussia GER 2? Ringwood,NJ "
b. possibly around 1690
possibly near or in Dombach near Cambor, Taunus Hills, Hessen, Germany; unknown.
d. Probably Germany near an Iron Work near one of his sons, he was probably also a hammersmith (trades were passed down from father to sons then) at Iron Works through out Hessen and Prussia, GERMANY
m. before 1712 possibly near Dombach, Hessen, GERMANY
m.
BUTZ, THE MOTHER ____ _____
" BUTZ MO of pos(sible) sons:Johan Heinrich,Christian,Johannes+Johann Georg BUTZ of ?Dombach Hessen 2 Prussia GER 2? Ringwood,NJ "
[ BUTZ mo of the sons: Johan Heinrich BUTZ b. abt. 1712, Christian BUTZ b. abt. 1718, Johannes BUTZ b. before 1720 , Johann Georg BUTZ b. before 1725 ]
[POSSIBLE Children of BUTZ FR(Father) and BUTZ MO(Mother): These men DID exist however, it unknown if they were actual brothers or cousins or uncles and nephews. They did all come from the same area near Dombach, Hessen, Germany to Prussia and were hammersmiths (worked with iron, a difficult and dangerous job.) If they are brothers the birth order is uncertain and birth dates are "guesstimated"/estimated off when and where they worked.]
[NOTE: Although the following have the names Johan, Johannes and Johann it is very possible that giving the same name but, spelled differently was a common practice. Often, during the 1700s, people had the same first name (or variation thereof) but, a different middle name. Some names, although looking similiar, could have been pronounced very differently and would have been obvious then to actually be a different person. Also, on a different issue, sometimes if a child died before another was born then that second child was given the same name, sometimes with a different middle name. If the first two passed and a third was born then that third would be given that same name also, if the same sex, and so it would continue until someone lived long enough or no more children were born. Please, be aware that although we now occasionally have a child die young that then it was, most unfortunately, very very common to have some, many or all of one's children die before they were out of childhood! We are very blessed indeed and it is thanks to our ancestors' sacrifices, and there were many more sacrifices about which we have no conceptions, seriously! We do owe to them much honor and respect!!!MM]

4. Johann Georg (Johan Georgius) ( Joannes Georgius /Johannes Georgius) ( Georg ) BUTZ (1725-1773)
[NOTE: He appears as all variations of Johann Georg, as well as, only Georg. Joannes and Johannes and Georgius are Latin versions
of the name and the names were often Latinized upon Birth, Death and Marriage and Burial records, even in
the United States, anywhere there were Catholic records. This was also evident on Ohio, USA Catholic Church records in

1. Joannes Marcus BUTZ

Birkenfeld, Oldenburg, Prussia, GERMANY
It is possible that there could be more children currently unknown.

Generation 1 in Europe: I...I...I...I...I...I...I
It is likely that 1 of the 2 following ( "A." or "B." ) couples are the BUTZ European parents and/or the first immigrants along with other BUTZ who first came to Ringwood, Passaic, New Jersey, now in what is called the "United States".
MOST LIKELY (and the genealogy below is set up AS IF Johann Georg BUTZ IS the parent) Johann Georg BUTZ and his wife are the parents:
A. Johann Georg BUTZ and Maria Margaretha PAULI who lived in Hammer Katzenlocher, ____, GER (1737-1742) and Asbacher Hutte, Rheinland-Pfalz, GER (1746) and Kastel (Kastel Iron Forge), _____, GER where Maria Margaretha PAULI BUTZ died on 12 DEC 1772. Johann Georg BUTZ was a Sponsor at the Baptism of and for the 1st child of our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ and Maria Magdalena KURTZ, Anna Catharina BUTZ 16 SEP 1762 at Stummenhammer, Germany. Anna Catharina ELTZ was the other Sponsor and very possibly could have been the sister or cousin of Leonard ELZ/ ELTZ who was the 2nd husband of Maria Magdalena KURTZ's mother Agnes STEFFENS KURTZ (see above the family of Ludwig KURTZ and Agnes STEFFENS.) Johann George BUTZ had a 2nd marriage on 24 AUG 1773 in Birkenfeld, _____, GER to Maria Elisabeth HERSCHBACH of Birkenfeld, GER, they had one child Johannes Marcus 30 AUG 1774 unknown if they had any more children.) A close relative usually would be a Sponsor at a person's child's Baptism so, this Johann George BUTZ definitely is related to our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ! FamilyIsHere2hotmail
or
LEAST LIKELY (and possibly a brother or uncle or father to Johann Georg BUTZ):
B. Johannes BUTZ and Anna Margaretha ______ who were in Gafenbacher Hutte, _____, GER (1737-1742), KatzenlocherHammer, _____, GER (1737-1742) and Sensweiler Hammer, _____, GER (1758.)

Both of these men obviously worked at a "Forge" (Hammer), and are alive in Germany and working around the time our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ would have been born. It is of particular interest that Johann Georg BUTZ was in the same town as the town from which our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ was at the time of his marriage (Asbacher Hammer, Germany.) It was most common that a son would follow in the same work as his father did at this time in History, in this case, Hammersmith (worked at a Forge) and that both our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ and Christian BUTZ immigrated to Ringwood, Passaic, New Jersey, USA to work at an iron forge. Many of the Germans who worked at this Ringwood Forge were known as "Hasenclever or Hasenclever's Germans". Mr. Hasenclever was responsible for 535 Germans immigrating with their wives and children to this area of New Jersey to work in the Iron Forge at Ringwood and remains are still visible there today.. These were a part of thousands of Germans emmigrating from the Rhine River Area of Germany and Switzerland to the USA in what is known widely as the "Palatine Immigration." Both our Johann Wilhelm BUTZ also known as " John William " " John " and " William " upon some records and Christian BUTZ led a migration to Goshenhoppen (now called Bally), Pennsylvania to concentrate upon an Iron Forge there. Both did purchase one and built one called Upper Mount Pleasant. The economic depression following the Revolutionary War caused many businesses to be sold and theirs was one of them. The possibility of Johann and Christian being brothers is quite high however, after 2 wonderful Pennsylvania cousins (Jane and Helen) have searched most diligently, no birth records of either Johann or Christian have yet been found.] nothing_but_genealogyhotmailcom

is the child of a different William BUTZ, not our J. W. "William" BUTZ. This other William BUTZ might be the one who came
the same time as Johann Wilhelm BUTZ as part of the "Hasenclever Germans" and the "Palatine (Germany) Immigration" to
work in the Iron Works. Mr. Hasenclever arranged for many Germans to come and work at the Iron Works (forges) in
Ringwood, Passaic, NJ, as our ancestor did. Our Johann Wilhelm / John William and another William BUTZ - with his wife
Mary Catherine - appear prior to 1778 on the records of the Jesuit Catholic Priest named Fr. FARMER who tended to the NJ and
PA iron workers during the 1760s and 1770s.-MM]

[NOTE: This was originally typed in Arial 10 point and was quite orderly upon the page with obvious generations being indented. Some message boards do not allow for indentations and generations can be confusing, this is the reason that the Parents Initials are presented before a child's name eg. [HAB+JG] Frank C. BUTTS. This will help separate the generations for you. MM]



[NOTE: As you are searching be aware that Latin versions of the actual given name were often written with no indication of the actual name given. If there wasn't a Latin literal translation for a particular name then one was created or made up and listed upon the Birth, Death and Marriage and Burial records, even in the United States, anywhere there were Catholic records. This was also evident on Ohio, USA Catholic Church records in Calmountier [French and Latin], Glenmont Sts. Peter and Paul [Latin, sometimes a little German], Danville St. Luke, and others in Knox and Holmes Counties, OH Catholic Records held in the Columbus, OH Diocese. They were on microfilm in the 1970s . Bring a Latin dictionary with you to assist in translating.]]

Research:
EARLY CATHOLIC RECORDS St. Joseph's Parish in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) sent priests far and wide on their missionary journeys. To the east the priest covered what they called,
"New Jersey Missions." >From Salem County in the south , to Trenton in Mercer County, Mt. Hope in Morris County, Pompton, Charlottenburg, Longpond and Ringwood in Passaic County< and other locations. Peter Hasenclever enticed some Catholic families to come to America, including the MARIANS, SCHOLTZERS and STRUBELS, who appear in the St. Joseph's registers. In 1776 Christian and John William BUTZ (our John William / Johann Wilhelm BUTZ) led a migration from New Jersey west to Goshenhoppen to found an iron works there. Appendix 2 (of these records found at the Berks County Genealogical Society, Reading, Pennsylvania) lists Christian BUTZ and John William (BUTZ) as parishioners.

I think it was known as "the Mormon" site and there are possibly older submissions by people who were and some who were not genealogically saavy. Again, make certain to double check any information from these submissions with actual records. Although some information is incorrect or old often times it will provide a previously unknown place or county name for further valid searching.

If you have or know any LDS / Mormons in your family then please give them whatever information you have so that your ancestors and DECEASED relatives may be honored. It is quite possible, in turn, that they may discover some information which you do not yet have (and they will give to you) and that it will be quite a good symbiosis of cooperation and mutual discovery for both you and them.

"Whatever Happened to Hasenclever's Germans?" by Susan Maier
"... enduring mystery in the history of our region's 18-century ironworks centers on some of its earliest workers, a group that has come to be known as "Hasenclever's Germans."
Peter Hasenclever transported 535 persons to America from Germany as miners, founders, forgemen [hammersmiths], colliers, carpenters, masons and labourers, with their wives, and children. Why did they make their way to northern New Jersey? Part of the answer may lie in a larger development of the 1700's that has come to be known as the Palatine immigration. In that time tens of thousands of Swiss and Germans left the Rhine River region to escape religious persecution or simply to find a better economic situation in the American colonies.
(The Catholic Priest) Father Ferdinand FARMER baptized children (of the Hasenclever's Germans and the Palatine Immigrants) at the Long Pond and Ringwood (New Jersey) iron works...
... the genealogist Walter Petto notes that the Butz family of Father Farmer's Catholic...records moved from Ringwood and Charlottenburg to Mount Hope, then to Goshenhoppen, now Bally, Pennsylvania, where they established an iron operation in 1776 that was shut down due to economic depression follwing the Revolutionary War, and was sold in 1785. John Henry BUTTS (and possibly his potential brother Christian BUTZ / BUTTS); and others of the Iron Working Germans at Goshenhoppen, PA) moved to Franklin County, PA in the Chambersburg, Shippensburg,Ft. Loudon and St. Thomas areas. Descendants still live in these areas. 2003.
The above summary is provided by Jane BUTTS Kilgore, a cousin and entrepid genealogist who lives in PA and descended thru James Beaver BUTTS; and, he was the last child of the 19 children of John Henry BUTTS [the first 7 with Mera (Mary) RODS (or RHODES who died); and, then the last 12 with Esther STALL (STAHL)] There is about 40 years difference between the oldest child and James Beaver BUTTS, the youngest, who was only about 1 year old when his father died.

NOTES FROM JBK (Jane Butts Kilgore)
Magdalen KUHN b. abt. (1755), eldest daughter of Michael KUHN, Jr. and Eva KUHN / KHUEN [KUEHN -MM] of Philadelphia, Ruscomb Manor and Hereford Twp., Bally, PA Michael Jr. and Eva KUHN arrived in Philadelphia in 1753 on the ship named BEULAH, probably from Switzerland.

Our William (Johann Wilhelm / John William BUTZ) died in 1805 (no day or month listed) and the Bible (record says) he was buried , [in Frederick Towne, MD now called Fredericktown ] "by his wife". [This does not mean she buried him but, it does mean that he was buried NEXT TO or near his wife who had previously died (date unknown.)-MM]

Father John DUBOIS was the area Catholic priest around Emmittsburg, MD (Maryland)...from 1792 to 1806...and founded St. Mary of the Mount College and Seminary. (It is possible that he) could have been "Dubois Clerge" (Dubois the Clergy man) who buried our William BUTZ / BUTTS ( Johann Wilhelm BUTZ , the immigrant ) next to his first wife who was about 40 years old (M. KUNTZ).

[NOTE: Spelling and punctuation were definitely not important during this time in history (1700s) and things were spelled as they sounded, especially if the writer was foreign born. Germans would have pronounced the word Clerge as "Clerga" or, with some English pronunciation added, the English word "Clergy" meaning a religious man. (It is often common that when a group or person from a foreign country (Germany) and language (German) live within another country (United States) which speaks another language (English) that the spoken words become "vermischt" (German for mixed up or mixed).) Dubois was not the name of the wife but, it was the name of the Clergy man or Priest who attended to the service, in this case, the burial of our (Johann Wilhelm / John William BUTZ) William BUTZ, the parent of our John Henry and grandparent of John Henry's 19 children and great grandparent of the first generation in Ohio. -MM 2007]

In "Catholic Trails West", by Adams and O'Keefe, Vol. 2 it states that some of Goshehoppen, PA families came from New Jersey. William (Johann Wilhelm BUTZ) and Christian BUTZ came to Goshehoppen in 1776 to found an iron works and were followed by a host of families from New Jersey, including the COBLE / COVELY , WINGERT, WELKER, ELTZ (/ ELZ ), WELCH AND STRUPPEL families, some of whom went to work at the forge. Quite a number of the Goshehoppen families or their members migrated west to the Conewago parish in York Co., (PA.) ... Virtually all of the families were of German descent. A list of the Conewago families of Goshenhoppen origin, known and likely, is included "as Appendix to Sacred Heart Chapel, Conewago," PA.)

Sold to Christian and William BUTZ and Moses YAMAN in eastern Berks Co., PA, 1777 was THE MOUNT PLEASANT IRON WORKS. The BUTZ Company tried to revive this and built a new forge known as THE UPPER MOUNT PLEASANT FORGE. This works failed and BUTZ sold it to Charles MILLER in 1792. [NOTE: William is Johann Wilhelm / John William BUTZ the immigrant.]

THE CHELSEA IRON WORKS (part of/ connected with/, connected to/ THE DURHAM FURNACE which was being confiscated by the Authorities that year and sold) in Greenwich, NJ had been run by the BUTZ family. A record in 1776 shows BUTZ living at the Furnace.

John Henry BUTTS lived at various forges and his children are listed as being born there.

[The surname / last name of BUTZ probably became BUTTS during John Henry BUTTS' Generation. -JK,-MM]

REGARDING THE CONEWAGO BIRTH AND BAPTISM RECORDS:
[ There are some BYTT and BUTT births and baptisms also in this record however, none of the surnames of the parents or sponsors appear to be related in any way:
BYTT, FORNEY, SANDERS, DRISKELL AND STRASBAUGH. Usually close family were Sponsors and known family names appear as the Sponsors however, there are none in anyway familiar under these BYTT and BUTT births. BYTT is more a Dutch/Holland name than a German name. Our Germans came from the Middle part of Germany near Alsace Lorraine, France or from the Rhineland / Rheinland area, Prussia and previously Hessen, Germany. -MM]

REGARDING OBTAINING "EUROPEAN" RECORDS AND TRANSLATIONS ON YOUR OWN; AND TO WHERE GENEALOGY SITE EMAILS SHOULD BE SENT:
[It needs to be remembered that Germany (and other countries at different times) was a huge country then containing now what is part of France and many other countries. Just because a record says Germany does not mean that the records are in what constitutes Germany in the year 2000; you may need to write to several other countries before finding which country actually has the records. Records in the part of France near Germany, have, in my experience, actually been in German, not the current language of the country.-MM]

There are some www.Rootsweb.com Groups with German in the name which will freely do translations if you speak no languages other than English. MSN closed free sites and I am unaware as to which sites these group attached themselves however, if they still exist, they should gladly help you. Go to the Chat feature, often they can help you right then and there. There may be other groups out there of which I am unaware who would also help. These groups went elsewhere from MSN's closing of the free Chat groups:: GenPals2003; AGenealogyExperience; as well as, there are web translation sites (have more than one site do a translation to get the real gist/translation of your record!) Perhaps Universities would also help translate. Good people are in all sites and some will actually help you search further, sometimes while you wait online in the Chat Groups, although, emails work just fine. One needs to "join" the Groups, which is totally Free (MSN - if you have a subscription; or were signed up free with them a long time ago); you do not need to use your real name but, can use a name such as BUTZRSEARCHER as your "real or online name"; it is your choice if you wish others to know your email address (just check a box which asks) and, also, whether you have the mail sent directly to your email account or to no email account and you will check it on the Web yourself (just check a box which asks, usually in the Member profile or account.) I do speak German and the language was passed down to those being born around 1900 speaking a few words. [NOTE: 2011 There are things/places out there now which I totally don't know, you are probably way more computer literate so, enjoy your "hunting"/searching online! Remember to always give as much detail as possible when seeking information and in any Subject heading as, sometimes, the smallest thing is actually the clue which connects massive amounts of genealogy or cousins together. Pray before you search, God does help in this work and miracles definitely do and have occured!] -MM]

If you do not do this then your private email account could be filled with nasty junk mail each day...this is true, I have 360 emails daily which are about not uplifting junk emails now as I did not know at that time that having one email for these types of groups saves much hassle with my regular email account. Since I do so much genealogical research I now have more than 5 accounts and just check them every 28 but less than 30 days. You can make a new email account such as ButzPAresearcher @ hotmail.com (or any other "name" not already taken), do not check any of the boxes for other subject matter as you will receive much junk mail "adnaseum" / boringly inundating and forever . Do not use your genealogy email address for your regular email. You MUST check this new email account every 28 days or (ex. Hotmail) will delete the account if you do not "check in" once every 30 days. [2011 NOTE: This may have changed.] If you do check in once a month then (ex. Hotmail) will keep all of the emails which ever have come to your account. This is an easy way to protect and save yourself from much heartache. -MM]
