March 1818 Since the latest date is usually more reliable and since the last two were consistent, this is the date that I will use.

!MARRIAGE: date estimated from date of birth of first child

!DEATH: Source-7 Eva found a letter on the Internet that stated that Sallie died "Saturday, a week ago". This letter was dated 16 Mar. 1910. Checking my calendar program I came up with the date.

1870 Source-4 p. 111 #64-64 Whetstone
Booher, Sara 55 [1815] KH TN
Margaret 30 [1840] "
David 28 [1842] "
Cox, Sarah 25 [1855] KY
Booher, James 19 [1851] TN
John 12 [1858] "
Thomas 10 [1860] KY
Cox, Wilson 10 [1860] "

!Note. The places of birth are obviously wrong for most of the family. John has died and Sarah has only aged three years since 1860. Jefferson Cox has been killed and Sarah Emeline is back home with one child. Where is that other child? Sarah Emeline's age is ten to twelve years off. John, age 12 and Thomas, age 10 look like the children Jacob D.V. and Joshua F.B. in the 1860 census.

Booher, Sarah 62 KY
Margaret 40 " sister
Thomas 19 " nephew
Dora " niece
Sarah 4 " niece

!Note. Margaret is listed as Sarah's sister and her grandchildren are listed as nieces and nephews.

!1900 Source-6 p. 99 #32-33
Booher, Sallie Mar 1818 82 5-0 PA WV WV farmer
Cox, Emiline Jan 1840 60 2-2 KY TN PA
Cox, Dorah G. May 1874 26 KY KY TN

!Note. This shows that Sally had given birth to 5 children, none of whom were living. This is obviously a mistake. I believe she said that she had given birth to 7 (or more) children, 5 of whom were living and the census taker wrote it down wrong. Margaret and Mary C. had died. Dorah is not a Cox but rather the daughter of Margaret.

Sarah married John Booher, son of David Booher Sr. and Barbara, about 1836. (John Booher was born about 1816 in , , TN and died before 1870.)
