My Ancestry includes:

182,       BUSH, Jacob, Sr b 1756 Hampshire Co, VA; [RevWar: Sol,Spy VA PNSR]; d 27/8 Nov 1832 Leading Creek, Lewis [1845=Gilmer] Co, VA; m Aug 1782 [?1779] Hampshire [1786=Hardy] [Augusta?] Co, VA

I have recently taken the new Family Finder DNA test, which would match me with a cousin from any of my ancestors. The FF test has provided 89 matches, so far, and working with them has resulted in 9 new confirmed cousins (from 3rd to 10th), with DNA that passes through 23 of my surnames, including this BUSH line.

If anyone who descends from one of the above persons took the Family Finder DNA test, you would probably match with me, and we would both then be able to confirm our ancestry (through matching DNA) from ourselves back to the ancestor we have in common.

In addition, I would be very interested if anyone has Y-DNA or mtDNA tested for this family.

I hope to hear from some interested cousins,
