Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Buecker or a variant listed above: William Bucher, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Francis Bocken who arrived in Virginia in 1701; Jacob Bucher accompanied by his wife Barbara Albrecht arrived in Philadelphia in 1735.
