  Noted events in her life were:

1. Census in 1850 in Western District, Scott, VA. 3 Three Booher households are close neighbors in the 1850 census:

Maryann Booher, 58, was living with son Samuel, farmer, 28; Julia, 21; William, farmer, 22; and John A., farmer, 17. Maryann's real estate was worth $520, and $280 each for Samuel, William, and John A. Everyone was born in Virginia except Julia in Tennessee.

On the next page is Eli Booher, farmer, 30, with wife Mahala, 28; Lydia E. 10; daughter Olly, 5; Margaret A., 2; and Samuel M., 2. Eli, Mahala and Lydia were born in Tennessee, the others in Virginia. Since Eli has not real estate value, he is likely farming the land of one of his neighbors: Carey Cox, 50, and his wife Mary; or Lawrence Snapp, 44, and his wife Eliza J. One might be his father-in-law?

Near Eli is Adam Booher, farmer, 26, with wife Elizabeth, 22; Mary J., 2; and Eliza A., 7 months. Elizabeth was born in the Tennessee, the others in Virginia. Adam's real estate is worth $600.

2. Census in 1860 in Estillville, Scott, VA. 2 Adam Booher, farmer, 48, was living with wife Elizabeth, 34; Mary, 12; Eliza, 9; George, 8; and Amos, 6. Adam was born in Tennessee, everyone else in Virginia. Adam's real estate was worth $1,000 and personal possessions $300. The post office was Estillville, VA.
