Your post was awhile ago so you may have found more on your family by now. I have a Katharina Butz who was born in 1846, just two years later than your Johann.She was born in Ropfershof, Germany to Johann Michael Butz and Maria Magdalena Riek.Katharina could have had a brother Johann and came to America with him. She was married to Jacob Messer and died in New Providence, Pa. I don't know how close that is to Ford City. Does it sound like a connection?If so, lets correspond more.
