Samuel Wright Bouscher
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 28, 1814
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 6, 1898
Murphysboro
Jackson County
Illinois, USA

Son of Henry Bouscher & Elizabeth Wright

Husband of Catherine A. Enos, m. October 1838 in Pennsylvania

Father of Elbina, Arah Ann, Mary Ann, William Henry, Jonathan, Albert, Emma Florence & Dalthula Alvarettia "Alfreta".

In 1839, accompanied by his family, Mr. Bouscher came to Illinois, and two years later he settled upon his present farm. After building a log cabin he commenced the work of clearing the land, which he developed until it was under excellent cultivation. He now owns a valuable farm consisting of one hundred and sixty acres, underlaid with coal; also two hundred and forty acres in Levan Township, and one hundred acres on Cedar Creek. As an agriculturist he has been very successful,and his energy and judicious management
have aided him in the accumulation of his property.

In his religious belief, Mr. Bouscher is identified with the Lutheran Church, in all the good works of which he is an active worker.

He was deeply bereaved when, on the 18th of February, 1882, his wife was called from earth. During all the years of their wedded life, she was his helpmate and devoted counselor, and in her demise the family suffered a deep loss. As a citizen, Mr. Bouscher has ever favored all public-spirited measures,and perhaps no resident of Somerset Township has contributed more liberally to its development than has he.
