Joesph Bozarth or Joesph Busart  



The 1880 Plat map:


By the 1898 Plat map he had sold his ground to Harvey Norris.

And he bought the property that was owned on the 1880 plat map of T. Redden of 80A and 38.95 on Southwest of the lake - the 38.95 being on the 1895 plat map listed as 26.50 & 13.30 and this was below the Josiah Farrar property that was on the lake edge.

The 1908 shows Mary Busart etal with 80A & 13.30 and Geo. Busart with 26.50A and the 1922 plat map shows the 80A as Mary Busart etal; the 26.50A as Geo. Busart; the 13.30A Jos. Busart; and Anna Busart owned 26.08A in section 28 just north of John H. Murrary Subdivision; which seems to touch the lake front; which she acquired sometime after 1908 and in 1908 belonged to J. H. Murray.

Listed on the 1880 as J. Bozarth but on the 1870 census as Joseph Bozart and the 1880 as Joseph Busart.

Mathew Busart or Matt Busehart

Mathew Busart, his wife Rosa, and their four children came from Germany by sailing vessel and landed at New Orleans in 1848.

Mathew's brother had come over some years before, and had reached Louisville, perhaps by way of New Orleans. Louisville was the last place Mathew heard of his brother having been. He had dropped out of the world entirely, it seemed. Mathew never heard a word from him. He had some children, too. It was thought maybe he died of yellow fever or cholera, which were bad in those days. Mathew and his family stayed in New Orleans over the winter, and from that city went to Louisville to hunt for the lost brother. They traveled by steam­boat on the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. From Louisville, where they discovered no trace or clue of the brother, the family set out the next. year, about 1849, for still newer regions.

They journeyed to Logansport by canal. There were no railroads then in the whole of the vast trans-Alleghany territory. They stayed at Logansport a few years, then moved to Marshall County, and bought a farm at the south end of Lake Maxinkuckee. There were 120 acres, known as the Farrar lands now. The Busart family reached the lake about 1860.

It was there, right near the lake, that Grandfather Busart established a permanent resting place for his flock. He built a log house in a clearing, now an open field close to the Farrar woods. The cabin stood till about fifteen years ago (around 1920), when Nicholas Busart tore it down, he recalls. The wood was given away for firewood; what was left of the old homestead kept other home-fires burning.

Mathew and his family lived on this land for about ten years, then sold it and moved to Peru, Mathew died at Peru about 1888, aged around eighty, for he was born in 1807. His wife Rosa preceded him a couple of years in death. Both were buried in Peru. Mathew and Rosa Busart were both natives of Germany, and were all their children.

The children of Matthew and Rosa Busart were Joseph, John, Rosie and Victoria, named in the order of age - One Township Yesterday's - Corwin

Joseph Bozarth / Joseph Busart

The first of these children, Joseph, was born in Germany in 1834, and died in 1903 on the old home farm at the south end of Lake Maxinkuckee. His death came suddenly. He was sixty-eight. Burial was at Monterey. He was a cooper by trade. When he lived at Logansportas young man he learned the craft. About 1862, he rented a farm between Logansport and Peru, lived there a few years, and in 1865 moved to (Marshall County, near Lake Maxinkuckee. and bought what is now called the Norris farm, in the southeast corner of the lake. His father had come ahead of him, about 1860

After living there for about fifteen years, Joseph traded that place for the one his son Nicholas lived on now, consisting of 120 acres and known as the Reden farm. He moved there in 1881. His wife Mary Walle, was a native of Germany and was about fifteen years of age when she came to America.

The children of Joseph and Mary Busart, six sons and four daughters, were Joseph, Jr., the oldest; John, Nicholas, William who died in infancy, George, Charles, who died in infancy; Victoria, the oldest girl; Mary, Rose, and Anna. Four of the boys grew to maturity. Three of the girls Mary, Rose and Anna, are living in 1934. Victoria, who married John Kline, died in 1925. Joseph Jr., the oldest boy, is single and lives at Logansport. John married Mary Gotcheu. Memphis, Tennessee, became their home. Nicholas J., present historian of the family, and his sister Rose are single and live on the home place. George married Annie Zurn of Monterey. Both are living on their farm at the south end of Lake Maxinkuckee. Mary, the widow of John Knepper, reside in South Bend now. Anna married Hiram Messersmith. Both are living, Logansport being their home.

An old map of the township, published around 1894, the Busart lands are on and near Lake Maxinkuckee. The name is spelled Bozarth. At the southeast corner of the lake there sa repre­sented a parcel of 63.10 acres in the name of "J. Bozarth." This was Joseph. The land is the Norris place. The map a1so shows another plot in the name of J. Bozarth, consisting of forty acres. The old Washington school house sat in a corner of it. This land is southeast of Joseph Busart lakeside property. Nicholas J. Busart now lives on the old homestead farm. George and his family occupy a part of it. - One Township Yesterday's - Corwin

    SUDDEN DEATH.

    An Old Settler Suddenly Expires.

    Joseph Busart Sr., Left This Vale of Sorrow and Woe, Monday January 26.

    It has been a longtime since this community has received such a shock as it did when the news was received that Joseph Busart. Sr, had suddenly died at his home under circumstances, that made his sudden demise horrible in the extreme. Mr. Busart arose from his slumbers Monday morning feeling in his usual health, and during the day assisted his son George to kill a beef, and returning home commenced to do his chores.

    Just before supper, between four and five o'clock, he informed his family that he would clean out his hog pen.

    some time passed and he did not return to the house his daughter Rosa went to search for her father, and on looking into the hog pen was horrified to see his body laying in the pen and the hogs tearing his face, one ear being eaten and one side of his face badly mutilated.

    A coroners inquest was held and a decision rendered that the deceased came to his sudden death through heart failure. Funeral services will be held in Monterey today (Thursday) at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, Rev. Father Thitle of Whiting, Ind., officiating, and the body interred in the Catholic cemetry.

    Mr. Busart was 68 years one month and five days old. He has lived on his farm south of Culver for over 40 years and was a highly respected citzen and a most lovable husband and father. He leaves a wife, four sons and four daughters to mourn their loss. The children are as follows: Joseph Busart, Jr. George, Nickolas, John, Rosa, Mary, Anna, and Victoria.

    We are sure that the bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of this entire community. Jan 28, 1903 Culver Herald
