Hello Don and Jerry,
the origin of the German surnames BOSS, BOSCH, BOSSE, BOTZ, BÖTZ, BUSCH,
BUTSCH, BUTZ, BUSS, BUSSE and BUSKE is the same: a familiar form of the
given name Burkhard (Alemannic).
Derivates of BOSSE and BUSSE are the Alemannic surnames BOS(S)HAR(D)T,
BOSS(H)AR(D)T, BOSSARD, BOSSERT, BUSSHAR(D)T, BUSSERT
