Rachel Martin Bush, widow of Francis Bush of Clark CO, KY made a deposition in 1844 in support of the Rev War claim of her sister in law Hannah Martin Baber, widow of Obadiah Baber of Clark CO, KY who died on 28 Jan 1822. Apparently, Francis Bush had died in 1818 and left a will in Clark Co, KY. I am not related and am only posting this information because an untold number of people at ancestry.com have the death date of Rachael Martin Bush as 1820. She was obviously alive in 1844, but not only that she is on the 1860 census in Clark CO, KY at the age of 93 living with her son Fielding Bush. I think she should get credit for longevity and having an extraordinary immune system. She must have been a strong woman. Pamela in MD
