78. Sophia Renner (Married: Daniel Bussard (Bossert) (Bosserd) (Buzard) (#77) 25 March 1760). (Source of their marriage date is page iii and 1 of The Genealogy of Peter Bossert-Bussard 1761-1802, compiled by Ruthella Bussard 1970-1974 and published by Jeanne Bussard Workshop, 101 West South Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701 in 1974).

 

Born: 19 February 1740 in France (Another LDS source says in Germany) of Unknown Father (#155) and Unknown Mother (#156). (Source that her birth date of 19 February 1740 is page iii and 92 of The Genealogy of Peter Bossert-Bussard 1761-1802, compiled by Ruthella Bussard 1970-1974 and published by Jeanne Bussard Workshop, 101 West South Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701 in 1974).The Find a Grave Website states that Sophia was born February 9, 1739 in Germany. [Note: Sophia's tombstone states she was 86 when she died and that she died in 1826. If that is the case, then she was born in 1740, not in 1739.] Red information on this page was obtained from ancestry.com or LDS and needs to be verified.


Died: 2 February 1826. She is buried in the Glade Valley Cemetery, Frederick, Maryland.(The burial site is confirmed on page 4 of The Genealogy of Peter Bossert-Bussard 1761-1802, compiled by Ruthella Bussard 1970-1974 and published by Jeanne Bussard Workshop, 101 West South Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701 in 1974.)
The Find a Grave Website confirms that Sophia died on February 2, 1826 and is buried at Glade Cemetery, Walkersville, Frederick County, Maryland. Her tombstone is shown at the bottom of this page.


[Her siblings, if any, are unknown because her parentage cannot be confirmed].

 

Miscellaneous:

In the Prologue to The Genealogy of Peter Bossert-Bussard 1761-1802, there is reference to a book titled History of Frederick Baker, Jr., written by Reverend Raymond Carl Maxwell. In that book, Reverend Maxwell recorded data from an "old German Bible" which had been inscribed by a "W. Bussard." The reason that the Bible had probably been in the possession of Frederick Baker is that he had served as mediator and administrator on a number of the Bussard's legal transactions, and he was married to Susanna Bussard, a daughter of Daniel and Sophia Bussard. In his book, Reverend Maxwell included the date of Sophia's birth and marriage date to Daniel. He also stated that Daniel Bussard was 13 years of age and Sophia Renner was 9 when they arrived at a port in Baltimore, Maryland, on the same sailboat in the year 1749.

During her marriage to Daniel, Sophia had twelve children: Peter (#39) , Elizabeth, Barbara, Abraham, Daniel, John, Mary, Susanna, Solomon, Catherine, Indah, and Phillip.

Sophia became a widow twelve years before her own death.

Below are photographs posted at the Find a Grave Website by Elsie J. Phillips on December 26, 2006. They show the Glade Cemetery in Walkersville, Frederick County, Maryliand and Sophia's gravesite.
