I recently saved a log cabin, the home of William Puterbaugh circa 1831. I had it moved to Pickering Village museum. It has ben completely restored and will be opening as a student resource center in April. The family emigrated to Canada in 1817. The family is the direct descendants of of the two brothers that left germany for Rotterdam and then the US.I have alot of Canadian info on William and his father John. John was married to Catherine Van Buskirk. They are both buried in a pioneer cemetary in Vaughn just outside of Toronto. We cannot find the name of Williams wife, there is reason to believe she may have been native or ofmixed blood. Does any one have any info? I would like to complete the entire family tree US and Canada for the Museum. I would be happy to share my information and contacts. There is a book that was done for the Canadian centenial, a copy can be found in the Richmond Hill Library, just outside of Toronto Ontario, Canada. My grandmother was Edith Puterbaugh

I have family that lives in Toronto. This is the info that I have thus far. Puterbaughs came from Germany to PA to Michigan at the onset of WWI my Greatgrandfathers brothers (one named Wesley) and some other relitives moved to Toronto to avoid serving in the war. My Greatgrandfathers name was James. He lived in Sanilac County Michigan. Married a Mary Ellen Dunlap and had 8 children. One of whom I am a granddaughter. Is there any connection in our families?

my ancestors John and family emigrated to Canada
from the US around 1817. settled on pine valley rd vaughn township northof toronto.
If your family settled in Maple or Vaughn, they may have been
in contact with this part of the family.
John is descended from peter puterbaugh who arrived on the ship the two sisters. regards Louise

According to info I have, the wife of William
Puterbaugh (Butterbaugh) is Christena Rodkey.
Their marriage date would have been abt. 1798.
I have no other info about her.

This William was born in 1778 in Fredrick Co.,
MD, and died Aug 18, 1859 in Indiana Co., PA.
His brother John married Catherine Van Buskirk
in the 1790's, and they later moved to Vaughn
Twp, York Co., Ontario. Husband and wife are
buried in Edgeley Mennonite Cemetery.

I got most of this info from the web pages
of Richard Davis:

Please drop me a line if you'd like to compare
notes. I'd be especially interested in any
info you might have on the Van Buskirk line...
