Group Description

The Buchheit family has been traced back to 17th century Germany when Johann and Christina Buchheit were raising their seven children. The Buchheit family name is found in the Pirmasens area of Germany, located in the Rheinland-Pfalz. This area is east of Saarbrucken, north of Alsace, France and west of Baden, Germany.* The earliest Buchheit immigrants to the United States came as early as 1824, when Johannes Peter Buchheit came to the United States with four of his children and settled in Pennsylvania.

Since that time, the Buchheit family has spread to all 50 of the United States, with large branches of the family in Clearfield & Pittsburgh, PA; Buffalo, NY; Perryville, MO; Louisville, KY; Baltimore, MD; East Liverpool, OH; Charleston, SC, among other places.

As researchers of the Buchheit surname, we have taken on a challenging and exciting project since our Buchheits seem to have lead exciting lives. Many of our ancestors were deeply religious - including the Fathers, Sisters, Deacons and Pastors who helped hold their communities together. They had various occupations, including farmers, lawyers, schoolteachers, florists and laborers. There were Buchheits who served in every war since the Civil War. Many even changed the original spelling of the name. Some variations of the spelling include, Bucheit, Buchite, Buckheit, Buhite, Buheit, Bohart and Buhi.

We also have a website where documents for our ancestors can besearched. You can browse that website at http://www.buchheithistory.com.

Please feel free to join us! We're looking forward to meeting you!
