Hello Lefflers, I have been researching my Bougher ancestors. I had my male cousin do a Y-DNA test for me, submitted it to Family Tree DNA and much to my surprise I got back more and closer matches to the Leflers. My Bougher match is one Ambrose Booher (1824- )from Licking County, OH.
My Lefler matches are John (1754-1854), David(1788-1865), Peter(1786-1871), Alem(1820-1894).
My Bougher family settled in Allegheny County, PA but Ambroses' family came through Allegheny County before going to Steubenville, OH and onto Licking County, OH.
I was hoping that someone out there may know of a Lefler Bougher connection. Perhaps and adoption? FYI Bougher is spelled differently everywhere, it started out as Bucher but morphed in to Booher, Booker, Bugher etc.
I realize that this is a shot in the dark and I thank you for your time.
