Family History:  stamp See Document 

From Rev. Martin Benzing of Nagold, Wu., S-93,  I received a letter with the data of the Butz family on 20 Dec 1974.  He found in the records the name of Albrecht  Butz was also Albert Buz. Albrecht was born and baptized the same day , the 28th of April 1764.  His occupation was the same as his father's, which was a baker [Bauer]and brewer [Biersieder]. His first wife, Barbara, nee Scholderer  who's father was a dyer (Faeber) in Rosenfeld. Her father had died before Barbara married Albrecht.  Albrecht and his wife left for "West Borussia" in May of 1803.  No child is listed as having been born to them in Nagold. Evidently they were for a time in Neckarsau /Mannheim / Baden where their son Jakob was born in March of 1798, so, they did ot go directly to "West Borussia"....

Where in "west Borussia" they migrated is unknown.

Update 24 Oct 2007: It appears from Ingrid Reule about Albert Butz:

>> In the book Altdeutsche Geschlecherkunde is given as name Albert.  About 1805 he settled there with 2 persons.  That means himself and his wife.  1805 they did not have any children.  He did not come from Neckarsau, Baden.<<

>>28. Kol. Kanstadt Amt Potycz (bei Modridkow and Mikowlas) << [Kanstadt/ Canstadt m. Moscow]

>>31.  Butz,  Albert  2   W <<[Wuerttemberg], now in  Germany]

In 1814 we find Albrecht Butz listed as having been an early colonists of the German-Russian colony of Borodino in 1814. He remarried in1815 to Ursula Schalkopf.   

There is no record of his first wife dying since the early records were not kept in Borodino. We do know men did not remain widowers very long, especially if there was a child or children. Nor do we have a list of their children if they did have issue. And, we do know he remarried Ursula Schalkopf [Schelkopf]....  [Update  24 Oct 2007: on first wife can be found on Scholderere Page:  information from Kevin Scholder]

Since Ursula was 36 years younger than Albrecht, I assumed, she probably remarried after Albrecht's death. Two more marriages were found for Ursula.

Ursula Schalkopf was married three times : m. (1) 1815 [in or near Borodino / Bess] to Albrecht Butz;   m. (2)  23 Nov 1843 Grossliebental / Od. S. Russia  #1882594/2 319 30  - File: Grossliebental Marriage Records, 184x (D. Wahl) to Friedrich Schuler b.  ___ d. ____  ; m. (3) Friedrich Finkbeiner from Groszliebental #1884103/2 415 21; lists she was from Wu., a widow

Anna Barbara  _?_

Family History:

Joerge  [Georg] Butz was  "host"  [owner] of the White Horse [Weissen Roessle] Inn in Gossaspach, a village in the county of Schwaebish Hall.  His wife was Anna Barbara.  Last name is not known. It is believed that  Joerge was dead before his son , Christian, married in 1738.

Meaning of Butz

The name Butz or Buts or Buss is German  .The old German word "Bozo" [Buzo] which translates to mean "a young messenger". In British-English the word is "butts", also, refers to mean "a young messenger" , the r.w. from old English is "buda".

But, I'm not sure this is the roots of our ancestral surname Butz [Buss, Bus]  A peasant surname usually refered to a man's occupation. Our family dealt in brewing and selling beer.  In the early German records "buss" was  an early-beer which the Crusaders drank which was safer than the variety of water on their way to the Holy Lands.  Here in the USA we still use the word "booze" which refers to an alcoholic drink.

In another dictionary it states that "buss" is from the old German word "busc" which means  "thicket of brush".  I think this is more in tune with the word "busch"

In the USA the word Bozo has taken on a different meaning after a famous circus clown ,who called himself Bozo, spread his silly fun around the world.  This name Bozo, however, was not taken from German but an Italian word  'bussic" which refers to a man who is a heavy eater and fills his cheeks with food.

* 11.04.1820 Philippina Anna Margaretha; "" Albrecht Butz and Ursula Schalkopf

* 06.03.1823 Katharina; "" Albrecht Butz and Ursula Schalkopf

There was a child born to Philipp Bippus and Elisabeth Reinhardt named Philipp, *26.08.1828

There was a child born to Johann Bippus and Johanna Reinhardt named Johann Gottfried * 14.09.1832

Taken from the birthrecord: births Borodino film: 1198710

I have copied the Borodino birthrecords by handwriting 1816-1835, but not every birth is there written down.I have also copied by handwriting all the Borodino family books from the beginning until 1940. I am able to answer every question.

Yours Ingrid

<< Hello,

Just following up on our e-mails the other day. If you would like to post something on your site that simply states that I am gathering information on the descendants of Jacob Butz that immigrated to America in the early 1700s, settling in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, that would be fine. He is said to be the son of Jacob Butz, who remained in Germany. I am descended through his son, Philip Jacob Butz, who had a son named Hans Michael Butz, b. 12 November 1726 in Springfield Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania; m. Mary Elizabetha Weber abt. 1749; died July 30, 1779 in Fork Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania.

I am currently compiling a Butz/Butts genealogy on my particular line, and would like to trace the family in German records as far back as possible.

Thanks for your help!
