Booe/Buhe/Bub Family

Philip Jacob Buhe was born in 1683 in Baden, Germany. It appears that Philip Jacob was married twice, first to Maria and second to Margaretha, unless his wife's name was Maria Margaretha, which is entirely possible. Both names, Maria and Margaretha appear on separate birth records in Weissenstein, Germany. Weissenstein was situated on the Enz River on the northern edge of the Black Forest. Philip Jacob and his family arrived in Philadelphia on October 12, 1738 aboard the snow Fox, a type of two-masted sailing vessel common in the 18th century. They remained in Pennsylvania for sometime and became a part of the Pennsylvania Dutch Society. Their son, Christopher/Stoffle Buhe/Booe left Pennsylvania and was in Rowan Co NC by 1756.

In 1775 he was the executor of John Hainline's estate. In 1778 he is on the list of those who did not take the oath of allegiance in Lyon's District.

Deed of Gift from Jonathan Chesire to his children and granchildren.

John C. Booe, while staying at the home of Tennison Cheshire, met Eliza Little Beemon, widow of Richmond Beemon and John and Eliza married 8/15/1844.Source: Davie Co. Heritage Book.

John Calhoun Booe was "bound out" (ca. 1830-1831) at the age of six or seven after the death of his parents or grandparents and went to live with the Stafford family near Winston. We believe it was the family of James Stafford because his son, John Monroe Stafford, would have been only 16 or 17 years old in 1830/31. It was through John Calhoun Booe that John Monroe Stafford met and married Mary Elizabeth Booe. When John Calhoun Booe eventually left the Stafford household, he was given a horse and a suit of clothes as a "going away" present. John Monroe Stafford and his wife Mary Elizabeth Booe are buried together with most of their children at Pleasant Fork Cemetery.
