In the book "Penn German Pioneers" by Strassburger and Hinke, Vol 1 "A publication of the original lists of arrivals in the port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808 by Genealogical Publishing Co. in Baltimore printed in 1966 there is the following information. On Sept 29, 1753 aboard the good ship "Two Brothers" arrived Martin Bugner (Buchner) father and two sons John and Henry. On the same date aboard the good ship "Rowland" arrived Johann Martin Buchner with his sons Johann Heinrich and Johannes Buchner. Only males above the age of 16 were listed on a ships manifesto. A John Martin Boughner (Buchner) son of Danial and Catherine Boughner was in the Revolutionary war and was somewhat of a hero I guess because after that it seems every family had a son named John Martin. Go to the Boughner genforum and read message #177, that may clear some of this up. I've never really studied the Canadian Boughners but Ellen Smith has. Her e-mail is . Hang in there, you'll get it figured out. Happy hunting.
