History of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania published in 1886:

JESSE BUCHER, farmer, P. O. Mechanicsburg. According to tradition the great-grandfather of this gentleman and his two brothers emigrated from Germany to America at an early date, and from them sprang the Buchers of Pennsylvania. Christian Bucher (grandfather of subject), was born on the farm where his father originally settled, near Union Station, Lancaster Co., Penn. His son, Christian Bucher, was born on the old homestead, which had then seen three generations of this family within its walls. He learned the trade of miller, which he followed in Lancaster County thirty-two years. In 1835 Christian Bucher married Miss Leah, daughter of George Youndt, of Lancaster County, Penn., who bore him six children: Jesse, Lydia A., Elizabeth, John, Isaac and Henry (all born in Lancaster County). In 1857 he moved with his family to Cumberland County, and bought a farm of 216 acres, where he remained so long as he lived. He and his wife were members of the Lutheran Church. He was a man of remarkable force of character and will-power; beginning life with nothing, by thrift and industry he accumulated a handsome property and was enabled to assist all his children to start in life. Jesse Bucher, his son, was born in Lancaster County, Penn., in 1836, and came to this county with his father when a young man. He learned the trade of a miller, and followed it until he came to this county. In 1863 he married Miss Mary, daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Kanogy) Crow, of Perry County, Penn. This union has been blessed with three sons: Albert H., Henry W. and Stewart E. After marriage Mr. Bucher bought, in 1865, his present homestead, which is a fine farm of 137 acres. The sons, now young men, are all at home, and the entire family is noted for thrift and those qualities which go to make up a successful life.
