Isaac BOOHER, farmer, Darlington, came in 1834 from Sullivan Co, TN with his parents, John and Margaret (ZIMERLY) Booher, their family consisting of Benjamin (deceased); John J, now in IL; William K; Nathaniel; Nathan; Isaac; Elkanah; Jonathan; Sylvanus; Mary; Margaret and Catherine all of whom arrived at manhood and womanhoood. Arriving here, his parents settled in the green woods, a short distance from his present residence, and made a farm out of the wilderness, raising their children around them, the subject of this history being only 8 years old at the date of the settlement here. His early education was acquired at the pioneer log school house, which was situated on Isaac Cox's land, his teacher being James D'Spain. Throughout his life he has been engaged in agricultural pursuits, yet being a natural mechanic he turned his attention a good deal in that direction, during his spare moments, which were, however, very few. His well improved farm of 80 acres is the result of his own labor, it being, when he bought it, covered with heavy timber, all of which he has cleared and brought to its present high state of cultivation, through unremitting toil. The house is of brick, and is a neat and commodious residence, comfortably furnished, while the grounds around it are tastefully laid out, bearing evidence of careful attention. The other farm buildings are substantial and in keeping with the other improvements. In 1850 he was marr. to Miss Mary Booher, d/o G. Booher, another of the pioneers of this neighborhood, the union resulting in the birth of one son, Marcellus, who is now married. Throughout his life Mr. Booher has been a consistent member of the Lutheran church, and, like all the rest of the Booher family, is a solid member of the old democratic party.
