Looking for any information about a Bush family that lived in Franklinton, Washington Parish, LA. William Tandy Bush (1848-1904, died in Franklinton) was born in Kentucky and moved to Franklinton where he married Fannie Emma McMillian (b. in Franklinton 1853, d. in Lafayette,LA, 1917).

William and Fannie had at least one son, Robert Nathaniel Bush, who married Paula Trahan (born in Abbeville, LA, 1887) and probably lived in Abbeville for a while.

Anyone having any information about the Bushes, please contact me. Thanks!

Hello, I hope that you are still out there, since your query is five years old. My mother was Theda Vivian Bush, born in St. Tammany Parish in 1916. The town was Sun. It is situated right next to Washington Parish, and Bogalusa. I have done some pretty extensive research on the Bush line there. My gggrandfather was Alexander Bush, for whom the town of Bush,La. was named due to the fact that he was the first postmaster there in April, 1904. He was born in May, 1846 in Marion County, Ga and was the son of Nathan or Nathaniel Bush and Caroline Elizabeth Butler. He and two of his brothers fought in the Civil war. I have his pension file. Anyway, I figure that we are probalbly related through Levi Bush, Alexander's oldest brother. I also have his pension file and he resided in Washington Parish, at Isabel, I think. Let me hear from you. janet rose

I'm not a Bush, but I believe your mother was a cousin of my father, Carl. He was born in Sun, to Offie and Ollie Taylor. Was your mother Lelia Taylor? I've been trying to find out where the Zack Taylor/Ella Sharp descendants are, I'm hoping you're a hit! Please email me direct- ka62180@aol.com My name is Amy Taylor Heffernan. Thanks!

Janet,

How much do you know about Levi Bush? I am a great grandson of a Levi Bush, born in Louisiana, buried in Coalville Cemetery in Mississippi.

I don't know much about him, and nothing about his parents or siblings.
