YOUTZY, Elijah  - 1809 to 12/18/1886 his wife Sarah Botteicher Youtsy - 6/23/1831 to 6/2/1894  Contributor: Carol Botteicher

 

YOUTZY, Sarah's sister Susan (Susannah) Botteicher  8/28/1836 to 11/5/1895 Sarah and Susan's brother Samuel Botteicher - Abt. 1838 to 1870  Contributor: Carol Botteicher

  Notes: Sarah and Susan Botteicher married brothers - Elijah and Jacob Youtzy. There may have been another Botteicher sister who married a Botteicher [Youtzy?] brother, but I cannot prove it.

  The following people are purported to be buried there, as told to me by Sarah Catherine (YOUTZY) Espigh, who for a long time lived across the road from the cemetery, and whose ancestors are buried there.

  Sarah Catherine (Kate) Youtzy Espigh is the granddaughter Susan (Botteicher) Youtzy, sister of my great grandfather Joseph W. Botteicher, who is buried in Mattawana Cemetery.

  Samuel Botteicher, buried in Moist Cemetery, a Civil War Veteran, although his stone is incorrect. Botteicher is misspelled as Bottechier. Samuel is the brother of Susan and Joseph.

  Willie Heister is buried there. 1876-1881. Son of Catharine (YOUTZY) & Enoch Heister. Enoch died, and later, Catharine married Christian Moist. They are buried in Mattawana Cemetery. Catharine's mother was Sarah (BOTTEICHER) Youtzy, another sister of Samuel, Joseph, and Susan.

  Also buried in Moist are:

  Lizzie Youtzy

  Harriet Youtzy

  Ida (Youtzy) Casner

  Sarah (BOTTEICHER) & Jacob Youtzy
