Re: Palemon Bush and Frances Guendling Texas

In Reply to: Palemon Bush and Frances Guendling Texas by Linda of 9099

This Palemon was named Palemon Earness Bush born March 7, 1892 and died March 5, 1973 in Hale Co., TX.
In 1917 he registered for the WWi draft in Eastland, Texas.

He is listed on the 1930 Haskell Texas, Precinct 6 Census.
Palemon E. Bush 38 md at 21 TX, TX, TX
Trudie A. Bush 38 ARK TN ARK
Cleo E. son 16 TX
Odessa F. dtr. 13 TX
Margie L. dtr 10 TX
Earline V. dtr 7 TX
Fawn B. dtr 5 TX
Alma L. dtr 2 TX

Perhaps this was a first wife as none of these siblings were mentioned in the previous post as his children. It appears a second wife may have been Frances with 3 daughters.

This appears to be Palemon's parents:
1900 Justice, Precinct 8, Mason Texas
James H. Bush 31 MO (b. 3/1869) MO ARK ARK md 11 years farmer
Georgia A. Bush 30 ARK (b. 8/1869) ARK ALA ALA
Ethel Bush 10 TX (b. 4/1890)
Palemon E. Bush 8 TX (b. 3/1892)
George W. Bush 4 (b. 12/1895) TX
Willie M. Bush 1 TX (b. 8/1898)

The 1910 Eastland Co. TX Census shows the same as above but with the addition of Maggie E. age 10; Bessie J. age 3 and Clara A. age 7 months.

A further look at census reports indicates that this James MAY be the son of James and Elizabeth Bush of Holt Co., Missouri. MIGHT, MAYBE!!!!!

1880 Forbes, Holt Co., Missouri Census:
James Bush 52 (b. ca 1828) VA VA VA farmer
Elizabeth Bush 37 Indiana, Ind. Ind.
Lucinda 17 MO VA Ind
Bertha 15 same
James 12 same (b. ca 1870)
Dora 10 same
Ala J. 8
Arbella 6

THE 1870 census for Lewis, Holt Co., Missouri lists this same family.
James Bush 45 VA
Mary Bush 27 Indiana ( wife was named Elizabeth 10 years later??)
Lucinda Bush 7 MO
Bertha Bush 5 MO
Isadora Bush 1 MO
James Bush 4 MO (b. 1866???)

Can anyone place this family????? Please! Palemon is such an unusual name. I would like to know how it came into this Bush line.
