Thomas Fortune, Caroline Co./Essex Co.Va, 1700-1800's

Is anyone researching people from Caroline Co. or Essex Co. Va that may link to these persons. I would love to share information. I have a Thomas Fortune who married a Judith Johnson. They had 5 sons and 2 daughters listed in 1820 census which was to early to include any names. Thomas was the only Fortune listed in Essex Co. after 1810. There is a good possibility he had a brother William Fortune that left Essex Co. around 1810 or earlier. Thomas was born around 1780-1790. This is my estimate only not from any information available. Rebecca, my ancestor, was born in 1814 in Essex Co.VA. She married Dandridge Bush. They lived in the same county as the Williamsons so I am wondering if there is any relationship since a John Bush married a Dorcas Williamson. I have found no relationship to my Bush family and this family though. Dandridge Bush's mother was named Jane. I don't know first name of Bush she married. I would love to hear from anyone with any information that may help me. Thanks so much for your time. Lynn
