I too am researching Andreas Bugmann, born 1811 in Switzerland. His daughter Elizabeth is my ancestor. The Bugmanns first settled in Bowmansville, NY, and in 1860 Andreas shows up there in the US census as a basket maker. In the 1860s, the Ebenezers (a German protestant religious group that sounds something like the Quakers) were vacating the Gardenville area of West Seneca and selling their land at low prices. The Civil War was on and nobody had any money. Andreas was able to purchase 10 acres of land in Gardenville. In 1867, Fourteen Holy Helpers Catholic Church in West Seneca conducted a census that includes Andreas and Mary Bugmann who immigrated from Switzerland in 1853. The 1870 US Census shows Andreas and Mary living in West Seneca. Bugmann is alternately spelled "Bookman," "Bachman," and "Buchmann."

I am wondering how you know that the Bugmanns are from Aargau? Do you have any more information? Do you have a family tree on
