      Okay - in THAT query, you spelled the surname as BORCHERS.

      and in your query in this group, you mention "Northwood MD":
      NOTE that Northwood is a suburb of Baltimore MD.

      Back to Ancestry.com -
      I don't know if this is "your" Roland,
      but he *IS* in Baltimore MD in 1942 -
      U.S. World War II Draft Registration, 1942
      Name: Roland Winfield Borchers
      Birth Date: 26 Dec 1891
      Birth Place: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      Residence: Baltimore, Maryland
      Relative: Mrs. Roland Borchers

      World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
      Name: Roland Winfield Borchers [indexed as BACHUS]
      City: Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      Birthplace: Phila, Pennsylvania
      Birth Date: 26 Dec 1891
      Race: Caucasian (White)
      FHL Roll Number: 1907766
      DraftBoard: 43

      In the 1900 census that I previously mentioned and linked,
      the Roland Borchers age 8 is shown as born "Dec 1891".
      This certainly looks to be the same Roland in these 3 documents -
      whether this is "your" Roland I cannot be sure.
      > 1900 Philadelphia Ward 22, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      > Borchers, Richard/49, Anna/30, Roland/8, Herbert/22, Frederick/20
      > Albrecht, Otto/27, Carl/25, Nellie/28
      > Phoebe Reed 29

      1910 Philadelphia Ward 22, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      Borchers, Richard C/58, Anna C/40, Roland/18, Adrian/5

      1920 Philadelphia Ward 22, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      Borchers, Richard/65, Anna/48, Adrian/15, Roland/29

      Interesting -
      the ADRIAN listed here is actually the second of that name -
      Philadelphia, PA, Death Certificates Index, 1803-1915
      Name: Adrian Borchers
      Birth Date: abt 1895
      Birth Place: Phila
      Death Date: 19 Mar 1895
      Death Place: Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
      Age at Death: 7 months
      Burial Date: 22 Mar 1895
      Gender: Male -- Race: White
      Street Address: 2038 Mervine Sta
      Cemetery: Mt. Vernon
      Marital Status: Single
      Father: Richard C Borchers
      Mother: Anna Albrecht Borchers
      FHL Film Number: 1872272

      So - now we see the connection -
      Anna, wife of Richard Borchers, mother of Roland, was an ALBRECHT.

      maybe you are confusing OTTO Albrecht and Adrian BORCHERS?

      This could be the same Adrian BORCHERS as above -
      Daily News (Huntingdon, Pennsylvania)
      1936 > March > 27 > Page 1, continued Page 5
      Mexico City, March 27 - The crushed burned bodies of 14 victims of a mysterious mountain airplane crash were brought to the capital today to be cremated. Eight Germans ...; an Austrian and a Hungarian, ... an American, ...
      The American was co-pilot Adrian Borchers, 31, of Philadelphia. He came to Mexico last May. His wife, Helen Forster, Vassar graduate of Ridgewood, N.J., was here. ... ...
      Borchers trained at Kelly Field, Texas. He was a reserve lieutenant in the American Air Corps.
      NOTE: remember - this was before the creation of the U.S. Air Force.

      I still do not find an OTTO BROCHERS as you describe.
