1. Obituary: Dayton Daily Journal on 14 Apr 1857 in Dayton, Montgomery, OH. 2 Died on Sunday morning, the 12th of April of congestion of the lungs, Mr. Samuel Booher, age 77. The funeral will take place this morning from his late residence on First Street near the head of the basin.

Mr. Booher was one of the earliest settlers in Dayton, having come here from Maryland in Dec.1807. In 1808 he married in this place. He at first engaged in the business of wagon-making as will be recollected by old citizens which he continued for a number of years. When the Miami Canal was completed, Mr. Booher commenced the produce and transportation business, and owned besides one of the first packets which ran between Dayton and Cincinnati. His transactions were extensive but he subsequently failed. For many years before his death he was engaged in the business of pump-making and his industry and promptness will be well remembered by all who employed him.

He passed away at last in a ripe old age, and after having experienced many of the vicissitudes of life now rests from all his labors. The companion of his earlier years and later life survives him. Four sons, Capt. Daniel of this city, David L. of Columbus, GA, Gideon of Lorain county, OH and Jesse of this city, with two daughters, comprise the family which is left to mourn his loss.

Samuel married Susanna Lehman, daughter of Peter Lehman and Catherine Eller, on 8 Dec 1808 in Dayton, Montgomery, OH.1 (Susanna Lehman was born on 12 Mar 1790 in , Frederick, MD 1 and died on 11 Feb 1871 in , Montgomery, OH 1.)
