Below I have copied an email that I received from Marlan Nelson. This may be the man you are looking for.
My grandfather is Arthur Joseph Butzerin, and great grandfather is Albert Butzerin. I have little information about Albert and do not know his connection to the Joseph Butzerin described below (a brother maybe?).
Thanks for our Email. The Joseph Butzerin in my research was born in 1820, Buers, Vorarlbergl, Austria; emigrated to U.S. in 1850. He lived first in Will County, Illinois, where he married Maria Sparr who was born in Ludesch, Vorarlberg, Austria, in 1822, emigrated to U.S. in 1855. They then lived for a short time in Illinois, then in Iowa and then to Nebraska City, Otoe County, NE. He was a stone mason (as were most young men born in Buers, Vorarlberg, Austria). The couple had three daughter, Mary, Emma and Louisa, who lived to adulthood, and a son, Louis, who died as a teenager in Nebraska City, NE.
If this is the person you are looking for, I will be glad to share much info.
