As best we know at this point, the spelling BOWSHER did not appear in records until the Bauscher's moved from Berks Co. PA. to the Ross/Pickaway Co. OH. area in the early 1800's. They were German speaking people. When the land was opened up in northern Ohio, the western migration began with some moving north the Allen/Auglaize Co. OH. area and some going to Indiana and points west. Perhaps your wife's mothers side is of Irish descent.
