Deed Book 8/1/1778
Philip and Catherine Bush to Thomas Edmonson, 83 acres land granted to William and Hannah Gilliam.

Are Philip and Daniel Bush the sons of John Bush who died in 1745 in Orange County, Virginia?????? Frederick County was formed from Orange in 1738.

John's son named Philip Bush died in 1771 Orange County, Virginia and these deeds are for after that period. The deed of 1778 mentions Philip and wife Catherine. Philip the son of John was married to a Bryan and not Catherine.

The "inn keeper" Philip Bush was dead before this time, as well. So who is this Philip Bush???

Philip Bush is obviously related to the Daniel Bush in the deeds. Could this Daniel Bush be the son of John who died in 1745 Orange County???

There is also data concerning a Daniel Bush who served under Col. Thomas Brandon from SC during the Revolution. Some believe this was the Daniel Bush who died in 1801 in Franklin Co., GA.

The Daniel in the Frederick County deeds does not appear there after 1766. Might he have migrated to South Carolina???

William and Hannah Gilliam in the Frederick County deeds DID migrate to Newberry Co., SC. William Gilliam was granted 500 acres in 1767 in District 96 between the Saluda and Bush River, just below the Bush River. William Gilliam was said to be a Quaker who attended the Bush River Meeting.

William Gilliam was married to hannah Milbourn (Milburn), the daughter of John Milbourne of Frederick County. Milbourne's Will in Frederick Co. mentions his daughter Hannah.

William Gilliam left a will dated 2/27/1789 and recorded in Newberry Co., SC Will Book A:67. It named his daughters Hannah, Ann and Mary and sons William and John. His wife was not mentioned. Executors Harmon Davis and Daniel Perkins.

Can anyone identify Philip and Daniel Bush??? This same question came up on this forum in 1999 with no answer.
