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
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.

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
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.
Re OTTO BORCHERS -
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.
