I'm looking for Goucher relatives for my family tree also. Oral tradition in our family says that we descended from three brothers, French Huguenots, who came to America to escape religious persecution. Supposedly each was a skilled craftsman - one was a goldsmith, one was a silversmith.

My grandfather was Millard Eugene Goucher, born in 1873 in Allegan,Michigan, died 1955 in Alva, Oklahoma. Millard was in the Oklahoma Land Rush. His claim was in the Cherokee Strip, in the panhandle of the state. He farmed that land for the rest of his life. I have uncles and cousins who are still farming there. Millard's father was Albert Eugene Goucher. I have nothing else on him at this time, but have just begun to look.

My grandfather's second child was named Stillman Eugene Goucher. He was born 7/4/01 in Alva, Oklahoma. [My father, Robert Dean, was the eighth, and last, child.]

Since you have a Stillman Goucher in your family and you are looking for information about a family that descended from three Goucher brothers, it seems probable that there is a connection between our two branches of the family. When I find out any more specifics, I'll be glad to share the information with you. Hope you'll do the same.
