Booher/Mitchell Connection

I am searching my Booher ancestry. I have been told that there is a Mitchell line, but I cannot find where. My GGrandfather was Henry Mitchell Booher, married to Ruth Lovett. I have been told Mitchell was a family name and it was also given to my cousin as his middle name as a family name.

Here's some of what I know:

My father: John Robert Booher currently living in Northern VA, b. August 1942 in Columbia SC, moved and grew up in Washington DC until later teen years moving to Wardensville WVA, where he married Frances Maybelle Booher (Sue).

My grandfather: John Luther Booher born August 28, 1918 and d. April 24, 1992. He had 6 siblings: Gray, Charles, Malcolm, Mark, Ben (Carroll Bennett) and Verna Sabina. Supposingly, he was raised in Maryland on a farm until both parents died. He was age 12 when they died and was placed in Cardinal Gibbons Orphanage in Baltimore MD along with his youngest brother, Ben. He went into the Army and married Viola Marie Hensley. They divorced a few years later and he reamrried to Genevieve Holmes, with which they had 2 children: Stanley Michael Booher and Cindy Sabina Booher. They lived in Savage, MD until his death.

My Ggrandfather: Henry Mitchell Booher b. July 4, 1882 and d. 1930. He married a Ruth Lovett who was b. 1885. Henry's parents were Herman and Miriam Booher.

Henry's mother was full Cherokee. I have a picture of her, but no names or information.

I have been in contact with one of my father's cousins Terry Booher, who knows much more than I do. I have discovered that some of my father's uncles changed their last name to Booker.

Terry has found that Henry and Ruth moved to Maryland from Tennessee.

If you have any info or any links to this family, please email me at

Thanks for your time!
