Trying to find info on the siblings and parents of MARIA KATHARINA SCHUESSLER BUTSCH (June 1, 1787-April 21, 1824) and MARIA ELISABETHA SCHUESSLER BUTSCH (March 10, 1798-August 26, 1875). The family resided north of Mannheim in the early 1800's, but may have been from the Hesse region, further north. KATHARINA married JOHANN BUTSCH and had ten children. After she died, her younger sister ELISABETHA married JOHANN BUTSCH and had four more children. The second couple immigrated to the U.S. in May of 1840, settling in Indianapolis, Indiana. Katharina and Elisabetha's parents were JOSEPH SCHUESSLER and ANNA MARIA FLOERSCH, but I don't know their birth dates.
