In Reply to: Jacob KIRCHER, b. 1837, France / Germany? by Marilyn Roth of 81

For what it's worth, here's the biography of Jacob per the Cherokee County Biographical History of 1889:

Jacob KIRCHER of Rock Twp. was b. 7 Mar. 1837, Germany {?}, son of Nicholas KIERCHER & Mary STYER. The father served in the French police under Napoleon. At age 13, Jacob migrated to America and spent the first year in Buffalo, NY {?}. Then he went to Milwaukee until 1864. He enlisted in Oct. 1864 in the First WI Battery. After the war, he returned to his home and remained until he bought 200 acres in Rock Twp., Cherokee Co., in 1874, where he still resides (1889). Mr. KIRCHER m. 1860 {?}, Mary MONDAY, dau/o Jacob MONDAY & Mary LAUTER.

I don't see a Jacob on the database for 1850 census, Buffalo, Erie, NY; or a Jacob of Milwaukee, 1860 or 1870. The FamilySearch database of the 1880 Census, Rock Twp., has Jacob, 43, but he and his parents were born in France. Wife was Matilda. Census of 1900 said married for 38 years. Oh, well...
