Here is a little more about the book Jim Belnap mentioned.It is titled Whence & Whither:Origins and Descendants of Michael and Marianne Beus.The book was compiled by H. Lynn Beus with Charlotte Gunnell.It was printed privately in 1984 in the United States and may be located in a library near you.
The first section is about the family in Italy.The origins of the name are presented.In Italy the family used Beux, which likely came from the French or French-Italian dialect they spoke.In the U.S. they used Beus.The Italian spelling Bosio appears on passenger records.Bosi is another Italian spelling.The name has also been rendered as Boxus and Bosius in Latin I understand.
The Beux family was a part of the Vaudois or Waldensians group that was driven from one place to another in Italy and neighboring countries.At the time Michael and Marianne came to the United States in 1855 this people were living on the mountainous slopes of the Italian side of the Alps.
