About Jacob Boucher, Sr.

Notes for Jacob Boucher:Taken from "The Boucher Family"

In 1830 Jacob and his household moved to Ohio and founded a new home in the sparcely settled wilds of Seneca County. Here the father and sons were imbued with those manly virtues that stern necessity bred in their noble children of the pioneer days. Jacob was a good hunter and together with the sons they are said to have brought in as many as thirteen deer at a time from a single day's hunt. Wild turkey were brought in in great numbers to stock the family larder. The forests of Seneca County comprised an inviting hunters' paradise. Jacob was industrious and frugal. He possessed some 800 acres of land at one time and aided by his sons they did much to forward the prosperity of the community. He, too, was a man of moral and spiritual worth. A christian devoted and true, the examples he lived have left an impress on his many descendants. The love he held for his family has been reflected by the reverence and adoration with which they honor his memory"
