Boozer Surname

Jason, I suspect that the last name is a misspelling of the German surname "Buser". If not, the Tippecanoe presidential campaign in the late 1800's dates the coinage of the term "Booze". It could very well be either one. This is just speculation, but as an African American, I think the slave name may have been misspelled from German owners or the surname was picked up after freedom.

My Grandmother's family is Boozer from SC. I have had a lot of trouble finding out much past her father Carl Boozer. He had children named Annie Lou, Doris, Watson, Taft, and Nelle (my grandmother). Do any of these names ring a bell?

My great-grandfather was a Boozer from Casey
or Columbia, SC and I know that some of his
people were in the building trades. I remember
My grandmother speaking of an Aunt Liza Boozer.
They also had a lot of land that was sold
several years ago. Does this sound familiar
to anyone?

The Boozer family that came to the south came in the late 1600's. It is said that they came from Buus, Switzerland. The Boozer family that I am connected to did not come to the United States until 1807 and they settled in Pennsylvania and then Ohio. I have looked at the birth records in Buus, Switzerland for my progenitor and did not find him. I thought that because of his name he might be from that area. If you know of any other areas that the Boozer people might be from in Switzerland I would like to know. I heard that the Boozers in the south had slaves and I see a lot of Boozers in the southern states listed on the internet. Of course, I have no idea how many of those are "white" or african-american. Henry Boozer was born in Switzerland in 1801 and came to the U.S. in 1807 with a mother and a step-father (surname unknown) He married Catherine Painter and lived in Wood County, Ohio.They came from Pennsylvania to Ohio in 1835. I'd like to hear from anyone who knows about this family.

I found something about a Henry and Sally Boozer, they had 4 children and were friends of David Evans. (as of 1840 Sally was in bad health)

My grandfather was Benjamin Babbitt Boozer who was born in Lexington Co., but lived in Columbia most of his life. He was a brickmason by trade and was of mixed heritage. B. 1890, D. 1970. He married Maggie Gilliam in 1922. They had one son--my father. He did purchase and rent several pieces of property in the area for years (I have old deeds). Does this help?

Please see my posting for Eliza "Lide"
Boozer. Her father was Vernon L. Taylor
Boozer and mother was Annie Kerrigan. Any of
these names show up in your records?

All were from around Philadelphia or suburbs.

I know of a Sallie S. Daniels who married Ralph Boozer in 1886. Her brother was Jack Daniels. I thought you might find that interesting.
