Hello, I noticed that there were two people researching the Buser name in Switzerland. Add one more!I am specifically looking for the following names.Until I can hook them on to another generation or two, I can't help with the information you need.
I am looking for one JACOBJAKOB BUSER who may have been born about 1750 in Gelterkinden, Basel, Switzerland or in the nearby area of Sissach, Tenniken, and Rumlingen (Remlingen). These are all areas where the Buser family appear for several generations. JAKOB married Barbara Blattner(Plattner) before 1778. This couple had at least three known children: Barbara Buser was born 2 Nov 1778 in Gelterkinden and emigrated to America about 1806 a George Hussler who may have been her husband. My ancestor was her brother HEINRICH BUSER, born 27 Jan 1781 in Gelterkinden and emigrated to the Washington Co., Maryland area about 1806. He married Margaretha and then Christianna, widow of John Dundore about 1820 in Washington Co., Maryland. They had numerous children together whose last name had become BOWSER. Their children lived in Maryland, and some of them moved to other areas including Indiana or Illinois.
I do not know who Jakob's parents are, but my relatives are pursuing his line.I see names on the Buser lines like Egli which appear on other lines I am related to.I recognize names which you are looking for, and received information about this family on Rootsweb.com which was beneficial.
If you recognize the above people, I would love to know about them. Our family will gladly share what we know about their descendants!
