Family Fact Sheets
PIONEER BUSER FAMILIES AND THEIR DESCENDANTS by Kenneth K. Buser
HIRAM BUSER born DECEMBER 19, 1836 was the first of the family to
be in Xenia, Ohio. He lived there until 1855 when he migrated to
Ladoga, Indiana to join his brother JOSHUA. While there he made
his living at cabinet making andaughter ofr other carpenter work.
He purchased Lot # 36 on the north side of Taylor Street between
Sycamore and Hickory Streets in Ladoga on May 19, 1860. The purchase
price was $100 and was later sold for $95 on September 22, 1863
thereby losing $5 on the deal. He was made Master Mason in Ladoga
Lodge # 187 on September 27, 1860 and was demitted to Waveland Lodge
#300 November 3, 1863. Only a few weeks later he married SARA ALLEN
December 24, 1863. They made their early home on farms east and
south of New Market, Indiana where they became the parents of nine
children. During 1891 and 1892 Mr. BUSER engaged in a business partnership
with his son-in-law, MARCUS BECKNER at 132 South Washington Street,
Crawfordsville, Indiana. It is possible that this business arrangement
may have continued on through 1893 and 1894; but the city directory
of 1895 shows the firm to SANDERS and BECKNER. Since records are
not available for 1893 and 1894 it has not been determined when
the change took place. Apparently Mr. and Mrs. BUSER remained on
the farm until around the turn of the century. The city directory
of 1903 shows them at 514 East Jefferson Street, Crawfordville but
it wasn't long after this that they moved to the west side of New
Market, Indiana where they spent the remainder of their lives. Mrs.
BUSER died September 23, 1917 while Mr. BUSER lived until September
30, 1925. Both are buried in the Freedom Cemetery about five miles
south west of New Market. 1860 Census Montgomery County Clark Twp
