Isaac D. Boucher

Mary (Polly) Buchanan

The 1830 census showed Isaac as the head of a household consisting of one male between the ages of thirty and forty and one female between the ages of twenty and thirty. This was Lucinda Travis. This was the last mention of her in surviving records. Nothing says why Lucinda went out of the picture, but, considering the timing of her disappearance from the records and Isaac’s remarriage in 1833, it is certainly possible she died in childbirth.
Boucher bought real property in Allen
next married Polly, on
He is shown in Allen County, Kentucky Wills and Settlements, 1815-1902 as a surety on a nuncupative (handwritten) will of Jacob Boucher (probably Isaac’s younger brother). Buyers of property from Jacob Boucher's estate included Isaac Goodnight, Peter Boucher and Jesse Godley. No date is given, but placement in the records indicates the early 1830's.
Rootsweb posting showed drawings of Allen County schools and a description of
their history. One related to land
given by Isaac Boucher. It said,
it was in an area that at times was subject to isolation by flooding of a branch
nearby. About 1866 Matison Boucher
gave another parcel of land for a new school.
He also gave the lumber, and again the neighbors worked together in the
construction. This same building was
used until the school was closed.
