There is a connection here, somehow - to what I am looking for. But I can't quite put it together.
I am researchng my Bush family. MY GGGG grandfather, Dr. John H. (Housen?) Bush was about 21 years old when in Newberry Co., SC. There at that time was a William Winchester who fought in the Revolution. Dr. John H. Bush thn moved to Sumner Co., TN in about 1800. Here he is seen on court documents with a James Winchester and Wilson Cage - All 3 named sons, Palemon Bush/Winchester and Cage.
My Palemon Cage ended up in Washington CO., MO from about 1812 - 1839. Then he went to Morgan Co., ILL and then the adjoining Winchester, Scott Co., ILL.
You responded earlier to me that Palemon Winchester was in Jersey Co., ILL at about that time.
Don't now what happened to Palemon Cage, the grandon of Maj. William Cage who die in 1811 in Sumner Co. He had also fought n the Revolution.
I believe all threee Palemon's got their name from a Col. Philemon B. Waters of Newberry Co., SC who also fought in the War. He knew Winchester there as well. Just trying to put a crazy puzzle together - any ideas?
By the way - Pike Co is very near Morgan/Scott Co., ILL.
Was your Winchester family in New Madrid Co., MO? Some reports which I can't validate indicate thatis where Dr. John H. Bush's children first settled in MO. Could they have gone with the Winchesters??????
