UpDate on Puterbaugh/Buterbaugh Y-DNA results
If you have read Julia's info re Buterbaugh/Puterbaugh Y-DNA participants, you know that there were two individuals (#1 & #2 below) who matched 35/37. Following are the five unnamed participants:
#1 – A Buterbaugh who has a paper trail to Johann Peter Puterbaugh, the immigrant.
#2 – A Puterbaugh who has a paper trail to George Puterbaugh, the immigrant.
#3 – A Puterbaugh who has a paper trail to George Poterbach, b ca 1757.
#4 – A Buterbaugh who has a paper trail to an ancestor, b 1810.
#5 – A Puderbaugh who has a paper trail to George Poterbach, b ca 1757.
#1 & #2 match 35/37, but NOT the other three.
#3 & #5 match 35/37, but NOT the other three.
#4 doesn’t match any of the others.
Early researchers felt there were only two immigrants – Johann Peter & his brother, George – and anyone with the varied spelling of the surname descended from those two fellows.
We’re told that Y-DNA doesn’t lie; thus, the Y-DNA results above should be proof that there were more immigrant Puterbaugh/Buterbaugh lines than just Johann Peter & George.
Following is information re the ancestry of #5 and me. Records of the Knowlton, NJ, Presbyterian Church lists the baptisms of George Henrich, Joseph, Joseph, Andrew and Joseph. The others are listed in the “History of Monroe County, PA”.

2) Joseph Puterbaugh, b 1778, No further information
**3) Johannes Puderbaugh, b 1780, m Jane Kishpaugh
*1) George Henrich Puterbaugh, b 1777, m Effie Henry. Their children were:
A) Andrew Puterbaugh, b 1801, m Hannah Honeywell (my ancestor)

I believe there are many folks in various parts of the nation whose roots started in New Jersey , those who have thought they descended from Johann Peter. Since the Y-DNA results have disproved this, hopefully, others may be interested in being tested.
