Hi Ngariedith,As a lot of these OTT's are on my family tree I have done quite a bit of research.The Maria Ott you have marrying Valentine Bushley is actually Valentine BUCHLEY from Switzerland M.7/11/1858 @ St Andrews Christchurch..Yes, I know that that is what is on the marriage cert,but when I was unable to find out anything more about him I had an online chat with Christchurch library and they gave me that information.

Hello Ngairedith,I was wondering if you had any more information on William Alexander OTT as I had not known of him before.The only information I had was that Johan Jacob and Frederika OTT had 4 sons and a daughter.(They were my great grand parents).

Hi there, William Alexander Ott was not the son of Jacob Ott. I've just written a short bio for him:
