E. H. Baugher is one of the successful business men of Washington County, and deserves more than a passing notice. His birth occurred in Frederick County, Md., July 18, 1826, and he is a son of Isaac and Ann E. Baugher, the former a native of Pennsylvania and of German ancestry, and the latter born in Virginia. E. H. was reared in his native State, where he acquired the first of his mercantile experience, afterward pursuing the same calling in Philadelphia, and still later in Baltimore. He commenced the manufacture of lumber in Washington County, Mo., about the year 1861, in which line he has since conducted a large and successful business, being recognized as one of the most substantial citizens of the county.

Ernest, and their home is one of the most inviting in the county. The family command the respect and esteem of a host of friends and acquaintances.
