Martin Booher - Catherina Hartman Genealogy

see Booher genogram for a genealogy chart of the Booher family

Martin and John Booher, sons of John Baltes Booher
(German Bucher, anglicized to Bougher and then Booher),
first immigrated to PA, but later moved to Sullivan County, TN where they raised large families.  Many second and third generation Boohers moved to Kentucky, especially in the areas of Clinton and Cumberland.  These families also intermarried with Washington County VA families, in certain instances, giving them direct link to the descendants of southwestern Virginia families. Below is a genealogy of the Martin Booher family.

WILLIAM RICE BOOHER, M. D.
page 871

William Rice Booher, a physician of Bristol, was born in Sullivan County, about six miles southeast of the city in which he now makes his home, in the year 1866, his parents being Jesse and Elizabeth (Carmack) Booher. The family has been identified with the history of Sullivan county since pioneer days. The ancestral line is traced back to Martin Booher, who was of Dutch ancestry and came from Pennsylvania to Tennessee. He was the father of Peter Booher, who served in the war of 1812 and who married Magdalene Beeler. They established their home about six miles southeast of Bristol and it was upon that farm that the birth of Jesse Booher occurred. He and one of his brothers were soldiers of the Confederate army during the conflict between the north and south. Jesse Booher wedded Elizabeth Carmack, who was a daughter of Cornelius Carmack, of Washington county, Virginia, and of Martha (Susong) Carmack. Captain Jacob Carmack, an uncle of Dr. Booher, served with the Confederate forces in the Civil War and Alex., Lum and James Carmack, brothers of Jacob, were also among the soldiers who wore the gray. One of these, James, was killed in the battle of Petersburg. In the family of Jesse and Elizabeth (Carmack) Booher there were six children: William Rice, Cornelius P., Joseph A., Martha M., Sarah Harriet and Jessie Eleanor. [p.871]
DR. WILLAM RICE BOOHER
[p.873] Dr. Booher received his early education in the public schools of Sullivan county and afterward successively attended King College, of Bristol, Tennessee; Kingsley Seminary, of Bloomingdale, this state; and the University of Tennessee. In the last named institution he pursued his medical course and received his professional degree in 1889, after which he began practice in Bristol. He was on the staff of Governor Bob Taylor, as prison surgeon, from 1889 until 1890, and since the latter date has given his attention largely to the private practice of medicine and surgery, his ability in this field of labor being pronounced.
Dr. Booher was married in 1890 to Miss Elizabeth Foster, a daughter of Charles and Martha (Shrum) Foster, of Marion County, Tennessee. Their children are Maude Eleanor, Paul Eve, Martha Elizabeth, Beatrice Alverda, Thelma Eugenia and Cornelius William.
With America's advent into the World war, the Doctor offered his services to the government and was commissioned a first lieutenant in the Medical Corps, on the 20th of June, 1917. On August 27, 1917, he was ordered into service and sent to Camp Greenleaf, Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, for training. On October 20 of that year he was assigned to the Eightieth Division, Camp Lee, Virginia, where he specialized in the teaching of sex prophylaxis, delivering a course of lectures on that subject and the value of morals to health and welfare. Subsequently he was assigned to special examinations and to the work of eliminating the physically unfit soldiers. He was highly complimented on his lectures by his commanding officers and at all times his service was of great value and benefit to the military forces that America sent to the front. In August, 1918, he was commanding officer of the medical detachment attached to Veterinary Hospital unit No. 14. On October 9, 1918, he received a captain's commission and was sent overseas, being stationed at Lux, France, where he remained until June, 1919, at which time his unit was ordered home. On his return from France he was tendered a major's commission, which he declined, being anxious to resume his private practice.
The old family homestead of the Boohers, about six miles southeast of Bristol, near Holston Valley, has probably stood for more than a century and a half and is one of the picturesque and interesting old landmarks of this section of the country. Dr. Booher thus resides within a few miles of his birthplace, which was also the birthplace of his father, and he is an honored representative of one of the old and prominent pioneer families of the state. Fraternally, he is a Mason of high standing and a member of the Mystic Shrine, having served as master of his lodge and eminent commander of his commandery, and his entire life has been guided by the principles and purposes of the craft. He is a member of the Episcopal church and has ever endeavored to instill high ideals into those with whom he has been associated while he ministered to their physical welfare, and he is today accounted one of the most valued physicians and prominent citizens of Sullivan county.

    KENTUCKY TOWN, TEXAS. Kentucky Town was eighteen miles from Sherman in
    eastern Grayson County. Though the area was sparsely settled as early as
    1837, a community did not begin to develop there until 1849, when the first
    substantial group of settlers, traveling in a wagon train from Kentucky,
    arrived. Others soon followed, and by the end of 1850 two stores and a mill,
    one of the first in Grayson County, had been established. On January 8, 1852
    Dr. Josiah L. Heiston purchased land from Enoch Jonesqv and laid out a town
    which he called Ann Eliza after his daughter. Because the town was
    populated primarily by settlers from Kentucky, it was soon referred to by
    such names as the Kentuckians' Town. By June 1854, when the first post
    office was established, the official designation was Kentucky Town. The
    first postmaster, Jacob Alfred Drye, also owned one of the first stores in
    Kentucky Town. The community, on stage and freight lines from Shreveport and
    Jefferson westward, grew rapidly. Charles DeMorse,qv editor of the
    Clarksville Standard,qv chronicled the speedy development of the town in an
    1855 news report. According to DeMorse, only two residences had been in
    Kentucky Town when he had visited there three years earlier. In 1855,
    however, the town had two schools, a church, a lodge, a lawyer, and three
    doctors, and he credited the town with a precinct vote of 200. Kentucky Town
    continued to thrive throughout the 1850s. At one time as many as twenty
    businesses, including three saloons and two hotels, were located there. The
    Civil War years, however, brought a different type of excitement: William
    Clarke Quantrill and his guerillas frequented the area around Kentucky Town
    and wintered there at least once. The population of Kentucky Town began a
    steady decline during the 1870s, when the Texas and Pacific Railway passed
    to the north of the community, and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas line
    brought the Whitewright community into existence three miles to the east. By
    1883 Jonathan Sewell's general store, which also housed the post office, was
    the sole business left in Kentucky Town. In 1924 the post office was
    discontinued and replaced by rural delivery from Whitewright. In 1988
    scattered residences and the Kentucky Town Baptist Church, itself a Texas
    landmark, were the only vestiges of Kentucky Town.
