James Bush 1739-1808

James Bush 1739/1808 Bastard child?????
Why would Gordon Aronhime list James as son of Philip without some reasoning?
Could James Bush be a stepson of Philip Bush? Mary Bush’s bastard child?
James Bush’s age 19 at birth of first child, and appears to have sufficient wealth at an early age.
New information has been found (by Harry Enoch of Kentucky) which opens up room for a lot of speculation, hopefully someone can find additional information in this area.

Orange County (VA) Order Book 2, p. 336
March Court 1741
       In the Suit by petition brought by John Cattlet and Thomas Stanton, Gentlemen, Church wardens of St. Marks parish against Phillip Bush for five hundred pounds of tobacco or fifty Shillings Current Money with the Costs of a former Suit against Mary Bush for having a Bastard Child due by bill, the Defendant not appearing, Judgment is granted the petitioners for the said Sum of five hundred pounds of tobacco or fifty Shillings & one hundred pounds of tobacco the Costs of the aforesaid Suit against the said Defendant and Costs.
