We just checked the newspaper index for that time period, and these is an entry which reads (in the index - the papers are kept elsewhere), Roswell Bush married Mrs. Ellen White, Rochester Daily Democrat Sept 9, 1841, page 2 col 7; and Rochester Gen and Ladies Amulet (available online in our catalog -, Sept 18, 1841, page 156 column 3
From the 1850 census:

1850 United States Federal Census
about Roswell Bush
Name: Roswell Bush
Age: 53
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1797
Birth Place: Connecticut
Gender: Male
Home in 1850(City,County,State): Rochester Ward 2, Monroe, New York
Household Members:
Name Age
Ellen Bush 41
Ellen Bush 13
George Bush 16
Roswell Bush 53
Andrew Dolan 23
Mary Dolan 19
Cordelia Murphy 17
Given they were married in 1842, Ellen White Bush would have been about 33 at that time (certainly young enough to have more children) but the ages of the ones living with the couple don't seem to indicate that they had any natural children, or that if they did, that they survived.
