Source-4 p. 551 Ira and Cyrus BOOHER, liverymen and harness markers, Darlington are the sons of Gardianus and Mahala Booher, who came to this county in 1830 from Tenn, and settled in the northeastern portion of Franklin Twp. Here they erected a cabin in the green woods, and hewed a farm out of the wilderness, enduring numerous trials and privations incidental to pioneer life. Religious affairs were not neglected. Though far removed from the borders of civilization we find that the Lutheran church was organized, and a leading position occupied therein by Mr. Booher until his death. Cyrus was b. in 1837 in this township and raised on the farm, following agricultural pursuits until 1879, when he opened a large harness establishment in Darlington. He married in 1859 Miss Lucinda AVERY, which union has resulted in a family of four children: Ella, Andrew, Edward and Effie. He is also a member of the Masonic fraternity...Mr. Booher is a member of the Christian (Disciples) Church, and is a prominent member of of the democratic party as is also his brother Cyrus. They are now in partnership under the name of Booher Brothers in the livery stable, and also in the harness establishment, receiving in both businesses a large and constatntly increasing patronage. Their uniform and obliging attention to business is neeting with the reward it desrves.
