BUTTENBAUM posted by Carol Simmons on Tuesday, March 3, 1998

On March 2, 1871, Catharine BUTTENBAUM was born to Frederick and Catherine (?) BUTTENBAUM in Town of Union in Hudson County. Frederich and Fredericka (b.1829) BUTTENBAUM first lived in Baltimore county, MD (after coming over from Germany). Found them in a newspaper when two babies died in 1863. Other children born there were Theodore b.1856, August b.1859 (my great grandfather), Frederick (b. in New York 1865), Lonie b. 1868 in N.J., and Edward b. 1870 in NJ. I found Fredericka in the 1880 census in Union (Hudson Co.) with family but no hubby. Aha! Then I found in the Index of Births in New Jersey a female child Catharine being born in Town of Union in Hudson County March 2, 1871 to parents Fred. and Catherine BUTTENBAUM (occupation of father Quarryman). So it seems my original Frederick left Fredericka after their last child Edward b. 1870 and married Catherine (or Catharine) having female baby Catherine in 1871 (all in Union, New Jersey) I especially want to learn more about the new marriage, birth of Catherine or Frederick's death. Searching for information on any of these folks. Thank you.

AMERMAN, AMMERMAN posted by Dianne (Ammerman) Bachman on Tuesday, March 10, 1998

My wife's surname is AMMERMAN, and we have tracked her ancestors back through nine generations. We believe that one of her ancestors is a Dirk Jans AMERMAN, who settled in Queen, Flatlands, by Canarsie in 1650. He may have been one of the first pilots on the Hudson River at Hoboken. It would be interesting to find out if this is true.
