They really did like to recycle names!

The census records are quite strange for the family of Jacob KIRCHER, b. 1837. In 1880 & 1900, the names agree, but the ages are different. Noting that they had been married 38 years in 1900, the dates of 1880 are more likely to be correct.

In Scott, Sheboygan, WI, 1860, Jacob KIRCHER, 23, b. France, was with Niclaus, 67, b. France, & Louisa, 67, b. France.

Rock, Cherokee, IA, 1880, KIRCHER:
Jacob, 43, he & parents b. France, & wf. Matilda, 39, she & parents b. Prussia
Ch. b. WI: Jacob, 17; Lena, 15; John, 14; Nicholas, 12; Mary, 10; Henry, 9
Ch. b. Iowa: Joseph, 5; Annie, 3; Maggie, six months.

Rock, Cherokee, IA, 1900, KIRCHER
Jacob, b. Mar. 1837, he & parents b. Germany {?}, m. 38 y.
Wf. Matilda, b. July 1840, Germany, had ten ch., all living
Ch. b. WI, Nick, b. July 1870, 29 {sic, 32?}; Henry, b. Je. 1876 {sic, 1871?};
Ch. b. IA: Joe, b. May 1875; Annie, b. May 1878 {77?}; Maggie, b. Dec. 1882 {sic, 1879}; Katie, b. July 1884.

To complicate the records further, in Scott, Sheboygan, WI, 1860, there was also a Niclaus KIRCHER, 37, b. France, with Catharina, 30.

At St. Michael's, Washington Co., WI, Henry LORENZ (19 July 1828, Saxony - 28 Oct. 1896), married Katherine KIRCHER, from Alsace, & had Adam LORENZ, b. 15 May 1861 [History of Sheboygan Co., online].

These are put together from the Wisconsin Historical Society site, Sheboygan Co.
Justina KIRCHER m. 20 Nov. 1870, Julius RIESE
Nicholas KIRCHER m. 18 May 1874, Marie HERZOG
Karl KIRCHER m. 1 Dec. 1882, Wilhelmine MEIER
Emma KIRCHER m. 21 May 1883, Andreas HERZOG.

--not my family, but I am looking for the family of Agathe KIRCHER, who m. Michael HEGY and had Mary M. HEGY, b. 1815, Burnhaupt-le-Bas, Haut-Rhin, Alsace.
