As it turns out, JM Faust does not appear to be an easily traceable relation. My great great grandfather’s brother, John Faust, was a musician. He, however, was born in Germany in 1826, not Buffalo in 1839. The family then settled in Cross Plains, WI, about 45 miles north of Broadhead. Later, they moved to Pierz, MN. He is credited with forming the Pierz Union Band in about 1880.

If you don’t have this information already, these links offer some interesting information about the Broadhead 1st Brigade Band:

I would be happy to share more information, if you think there is a connection.
