Think I've found your Peter Bush at
Blue Ridge Cemetery, Roanoke Co., VA

P. Bush aged 78 years (pictured is old weathered stone, cannot read from photo, but if this IS Peter and he was born about 1763 and died in 1841 - this would appear to be same. Especially since also buried is an Alice Bush (nee Riveer) with no dates given.
others in cemetery are:
Columbus Fields Ashburn Bush 1892-1968
J R Bush
Lula Waldron Bush 1895-1957
Mary Bandy Bush d. 1893
T J Bush 1852 -1853
Thomas Johnston Bush 1797-1865 (Your son Thos also born 1797)
Thomas L. Bush 1825-1888

I have info that a Peter Bush left a will in 1841 in Roanoke County. Can you access a transript??
