Peter Bush, b. about 1760, married Alice in Lancaster in 1795. Son Thomas was born in 1797. They lived and died in Botetourt, now the Vinton area in Roanoke County. Peter is likely descended from Abraham and Isaac of Lancaster, but there is a missing link or two. Does anyone know anything about Peter? I need to know his parents and his other children. I need to know if he was the father of William 1806-1862, who died in Bedford County, VA.

Alice had a brother Thomas and sisters Elizabeth and Sarah, who married John Muse (Lancaster Chancery Record 1846-004). I need to know her parents.

There appear to be several marriages between the two surnames in Lancaster.

In the Roanoke, Bedford, Franklin Counties there were Bush families and they all used the same given names, as did the Bushes in Lancaster and Orange.

Thank you for any information you can give.
