Re: Wm. C. Bush -- Frisco Railroad, Springfield MO

In Reply to: Wm. C. Bush -- Frisco Railroad, Springfield MO by Russ Cowell of 9101

Frances S. Cowell b. 1892 Illinois to Silas Cowellb. 1851 N J and Elizabeth b. 1852 Michigan.
They are in the 1900 Census Butler Co., MO.
Also in 1900 Census, Mississippi County Missouri, is Wm. C Bush b. 1878 MO. He is boarder with Manuel family--also there is a Charles R. Bush b. 1880 MO boarding with different family. I believe these Bush boys are brothers as both show father b. NY and mother b. Sweden.
In 1880 there is an Eliza Wiseman b. Sweden in Mississippi County, MO with 2 yr old son William C.Bush.
My theory is--Charles R. was born after Census was taken.
Maybe their father died and Eliza needed someone to help her so she married Wiseman--he was about 12 years older than her and had children also.

The Bush boys are in Butler County Mo in 1910 & 1920, then Charles is still there 1930 and William C. in Greene Co.
