Phoebe (Younkin) Boucher was born on Jan. 12, 1816 in Turkeyfoot Township, Somerset County, PA, the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth "Betsy" (Weimer) Younkin.
She was united in wedlock with John Boucher ( ? - ? ). At some point, after the untimely death of Phoebe's father in 1839, her widowed mother came to live with the family. They dwelled in a small brick house near Paddytown.
The Bouchers were pioneer settlers of Illinois and made their home in Jackson County.
The couple produced at least one son, Harmon Boucher.
They are named in the 1995 Weimer Genealogical Center book Frederick Weimer (1742-1814).

Son Harmon Boucher may be the same man found guilty of larceny in Somerset County in November 1877. Later, he resided in Jackson County, IL, where he died.
