Bushey/Bouchey/Bushee & McFarland - Canada, Maine, Mass
Posted by: suzanne (ID *****2648) Date: July 10, 2003 at 06:30:39

Looking for ancestry/origins of Joseph Bouchey (aka Bouchie, Bushey, Bushee ...)b.~1787, Canada. He was probably French and the name has been Anglicized over time. Was a ship carpenter. Joseph married Deborah McFarland ~1814 or so. Deborah b.~1796, Maine. Need her ancestry/origins also.

Found this family in 1840 census, Newbury, Mass and in 1850 census, Newburyport, Mass., but no trace of them in earlier or later years in Mass or Maine or NH.

Known children of Joseph & Deborah:

1. Angelette, b. 1815, Maine; married Robert C. Rich, 1838 in Salem, Mass; lived in Newburyport, Mass & Bath, Me.
2. Mary, b. ~1827
3. George J., b. ~1832 (in Navy during Civil War)
4. Edwin A., b. ~1836 (in Navy during Civil War)
5. William N., b. ~1840
6. possibly Joseph, b. ~1843 (in Army during Civil War; may have deserted)

Thanks in advance for any help! -Suzanne
