CHARLES W. GOUCHER, a venerable citizen of Toronto, was born in Delaware county, Penn., August 4, 1818, the son of Samuel and Martha (Boone) Goucher. His parents were both natives of Delaware county, and passed their lives there, the mother dying in 1826, and the father dying while on a business visit to Illinois. Mr. Goucher became a carpenter in his youth, and followed that trade to a considerable extent, but also engaged in the river traffic as a pilot, for several years. He came to Jefferson county in 1834, and settled where he now lives. He was married to Mary Shuster, who died in 1884, leaving four children: William B., Samuel B., and George W. B. Mr. Goucher, though not an active partisan, is a staunch democrat. He is widely known in the county and is everywhere highly regarded.
