  Birth Notes:

The birthdate on his tombstone differs from his baptism record of his birth in the church.

  Noted events in his life were:

1. He has conflicting birth information of 14 Oct 1780 and , Lancaster, PA. 2 3 4 The birthdate on his tombstone differs from his baptism record of his birth in the church. We believe the tombstone is worn and too hard to read. The date in his baptism record at the church is more reliable.

2. He has conflicting death information of 3 Dec 1822 and , Sullivan, TN. Numerous researchers report his date of death as 3 Dec 1822 based on a tombstone reading, but we believe the tombstone is worn and hard to read and the correct date is 8 Dec 1872, since his will is dated much later and he appears in later census.

3. Census in 1850 in Subdivision 30, Sullivan, TN. 2 On the same census page are two Booher households. Martin Booher, farmer, 74, was living with Ella, 61; William, 40; Louisa, 33, and Rebecca, 22. The parents were born in Pennsylvania, the children in Tennessee. Martin's real estate was worth $1000.

Next door is Peter Booher, farmer, 71, with wife Magdalin, 69; Jesse, farmer, 28; William, farmer, 23; Mary, 19; and Martha, 22. Everyone was born in Tennessee except Peter in Pennsylvania.

The next door neighbor is John Combs, 50, farmer, and his wife Mary and their family.

4. He signed a will on 29 Sep 1872 in , Sullivan, TN. 5 I Peter Booher of the County of Sullivan and State of Tennessee wishing to settle all my worldly affairs do make and publish this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following:
That my executors pay all my just debs and funeral expenses out of my personal estate and also all expenses of ?? myself and wife and should I die before my wife Magdaline Booher I will that she be maintained comfortable out of the proceeds of my Land.
