Buckenmeyer Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Buckenmeyer family originated in the Bas Rhin region of Alsace, France. The family likely spoke German, but the civil records were largely in French.

In the below family tree, "Jean-Michel" is "Johan Michael." Similarly, "Francoise" is "Frantz." This French/German written/spoken combination is the case for all of the given names. The Buckenmeyer family was Roman Catholic. Most of the family either stayed in France or emigrated to New York and Ohio, USA.

The last Buckenmeyer descendant in my direct ancestral line is my great-great-great-grandmother Theresia Buckenmeyer, who came to America in 1846 with her husband Pierre (Peter) Kolb from Riedseltz, France.

RIEDSELTZ, FRANCE

The Buckenmeyer family lived in Riedseltz, Alsace, France dating back to the earliest records available. I provide information on the town of Riedseltz online.

LIVING IN SHELDON, NEW YORK

The Kolb family (with mother Theresia Buckenmeyer) came to Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York. Sheldon is a tiny township in western New York near Buffalo. I provide details of the town online.

The Kolb and Buckenmeyer families were members of the St. Cecelia's Church in Sheldon. The church is known as "the Cathedral of Wyoming County." In 1838, just eight years prior to the Kolb/Buckenmeyer arrival, a tiny church that would later transform into St. Cecelia's was built a half mile south of the present structure. It was meant to accommodate about 30 families. The church was a frame building, about 28 ft. wide and 30 ft. long, erected upon a stone foundation and boasting a tiny tower. As more families moved to Sheldon, the small church became inadequate; a new one was built in 1848.

The new church building (from 1848, pictured below) was a wooden structure, about 40 x 90 ft. The sanctuary was narrower than the body of the church by about three feet on each side and higher by about seven steps. The new church was blessed by Bishop Timon. In 1849, the first rectory was built by the first resident pastor, Rev. J.G. Schaefer. By 1860, Sheldon Township had a population of 2,794. Father Gruber, pastor from 1850-1852, enumerated about 200 families.

The Kolbs are listed in the 1850 Census in Sheldon, but disappear until ancestor Peter Kolb's Civil War service for the Kentucky Union Infantry. Eventually the Kolb family settles in Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- where several generations have lived and where the family still resides.

FAMOUS RELATIVE

Actor Michael Biehn (born July 31, 1956), best known for his roles in The Terminator as Kyle Reese, Aliens as Cpl. Dwayne Hicks, and The Abyss as Lt. Coffey, is a distant cousin. Like me, he is descended from Christian Buckenmeyer and his wife Elisabethe Maier. Cousin Michael Biehn has also acted in films such as Tombstone and Planet Terror. On television, Biehn appeared in the cast of the Emmy Award-winning 1980s television series Hill Street Blues.

SURNAME ORIGINS

The surname Buckenmeyer comes from buchen or "beech tree", a common tree in Europe, and maier, in this case used assigned to a tenant farmer. A man who was overseeing or farming land with beech trees on it would have adopted the name.

Schmitt is an occupational name from the Middle High German smit or schmied, or "blacksmith".

Meyer is from the Middle High German meier, a status name for a steward, bailiff, or overseer. Originally it denoted a village headman, from the Latin maior or "greater" (superior).

Notes on Peter and Theresa Kolb:
.............Theresa Buckenmeyer's birth record is a civil record and is written in French. Witnesses to her birth were Jacob Linn (age 30) and Joseph Stephan (age 38, the rural guard or sylvan guard of Riedseltz, i.e., someone who someone who guards the communal forest to prevent unauthorized lumber theft). The witnesses to the marriage of Peter Kolb and Theresa Buckenmeyer armers Peter Schmitt, 46, uncle bride; George Kolb, 55, uncle groom; Jacob Buckenmeyer, 38, brother bride; and Jacob Huebsch, 38, brother-in-law bride.
.............Theresa and her husband Peter Kolb immigrated to Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York in June/July 1846. They settled there with Theresa's brother Jacob and his family. Sheldon, New York was a farming community that was in the midst of becoming more established when the Kolb and Buckenmeyer families arrived in 1846. Other families from Riedseltz had previously settled in Sheldon. (The Hibsch family still has descendants in the Sheldon area; there are also Buckenmeyer descendants in the neighboring township of Bennington.)
.............There is no record of the family living in Sheldon after the 1850 census. In the 1860 census, Theresa Buckenmeyer Kolb is listed as living in the 9th ward of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a real estate value of $100. She is listed as being age 41, wed, and born in France. Her son Peter Kolb is listed, age 16, laborer, born in France; her son Joseph Kolb is listed, age 12, in school, born in Wisconsin. Her son Lorenz Kolb is listed, age 8, in school, born in Wisconsin. And her daughter Catharina Kolb, age 7, in school, born in Wisconsin is listed. Her husband Peter Kolb the elder is absent from the listing. The ages for the children are not accurate nor is the location of the birth of Lorenz, who was born in France. By 1861, Peter Kolb (son of Theresa and my great-great-grandfather) was mustered in to the Civil War in Kentucky. It is unknown why he registered in Kentucky union since the family was living in Wisconsin. It is possible that his wife, Catherine, had ties to Kentucky and they moved there temporarily due to her connections.
