SCHUELERs & SCHULERs of Erie County, NY

In my effort to track the descendants of Catherine SCHMIDT (sister to my great-grandfather, Philipp Leonhard SCHMIDT), I am trying to figure out information about the man she married, Frank SCHUELER (b. July 1849). This is requiring me to become a bit familiar with the SCHUELER and SCHULER lines of Buffalo. I have compiled the following from what's been posted over the last several months to the SCHUELER/SCHULER message boards. (Kathy Kopp, I hope I got this right...) If you have any additional information about these or other SCHUELER/SCHULER lines of Buffalo, please contact me. (This and other email addresses have been modified to diminish spam.) Please also see Kathy Kopp's excellent compilation of Buffalo Schuelers from city directory listings.

Other Early Buffalo Schuelers

A. M. Schuler, b. abt. 1804 Germany, can be found in Black Rock in the 1850 census, age 46, laborer; m. Gertrude, 46 (b. abt. 1804 Germ) with these children:
  • Anna Schuler, b. abt. 1838 Germany
  • Peter Schuler, b. abt. 1841, Germany
  • Elizabeth Schuler, b. abt. 1842 NY
  • Mary Schuler, b. abt. 1844 NY
  • Lana Schuler, b. abt. 1847 NY

B. John Martin SCHUELER, b. 1821 Hesse Darmstadt. Can't find in 1850 census.

C. Gottlieb SCHUELER, b. 1840 Wurttemberg. There's a Gottlieb Schuler, working at J.J. & G.S., printer, 374 Front Avenue, in the 1890 city directory. There's also a Godleip, son of John & Annie Schuler, b. abt. 1837. He's not in 1850 census.

D. Martin John SCHUELER, b. 1840/41 Hessen Darmstadt. See J. M. Schueler in 1880 census below; right age. Not in 1850 census.

Here is the Frank SCHUELER that I am trying to link into the above. On three different NY State Censuses there is a Frank K/GRAUS -- grandson? to Christian SCHUELER -- living with Christian's family above-- b. 1849 who the third time shows up as Frank SCHUELER, b. 1849. Looks quite possible that "my" Frank Schueler started out as Frank G/KRAUS, but was raised by his grandfather and ultimately (by his 1874 marriage) took his last name. The question is: which daughter of Christian's was Frank GRAUS's mother? Can't find him in 1850 census; in 1860, he's Frank Graus living with Christian & Anna, age 11; in 1870 he is the Frank Kraus, 21, b. NY, apprentice carpenter, living in same household with Christian's daughter, Christine Schueler Goldsmit (and next door to Christian). (By the way, this is on the same page as Philippina Betz Schauf, whose sister Elisabetha's daughter, Catherine Schmidt, marries Frank Schueler abt. 1872.) See family photo.
