Busenitz (Bussnitz, Buzenes), a West Prussian Mennonite family of the Flemish group, originally urban. The last family bearing this name moved to Kansas in 1894, where it was spreading again. Johann Busenitz together with Heinrich Donner represented the West Prussian Mennonites, 1777-1780, in negotiations with the government, which led successfully to the special Privilegium of Frederick II in 1780.
