An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Baacher or a variant listed above: Andreas Bach, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1768; Gabriel Bach came to Georgia in 1734; Johan Bach settled in Philadelphia in 1744; Thos Bach came to Virginia in 1638..

The Baacher Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: In cruce spes mea
Motto Translation: In the cross is my hope.
