Bush and Shape Families
Posted by: Carletta Bush (ID *****3720) Date: February 09, 2008 at 16:50:02
  of 1583

I am looking for the children of Frederick Bush.
According to his daughter Elizabeth/Eliza Bush Shape's obituary in 1916, she was born in the Clarksville area to Frederick and his wife, and was one of 14 children.
Elizabeth married John Shape in 1847 and remained in Morgan Township until her death.

I believe that he may be the father of Henry Bush (b.1832 in Greene Co; died 1875 in Washington Co.).

A known brother of Elizabeth's was Frederick W. who died in West Finley in 1905. Other siblings besides Henry may be John of Somerset County(1819-1886)and Mary Daugherty.

Isaac and Elizabeth Bush were parents/grandparents/aunt-uncle of Frederick. He received a patent for land in Washington County in 1786 in the area of Bethlehem Township.

Any information on this family would be appreciated.
My husband Robert is th gr gr grandson of Henry and Elizabeth Bush, through their son John.
