I would like to share and gain information regarding the Simeon Bush I, family line dated back to the 1750's. 1850's family line includes Simeon Bush II, and grandson George S. Bush

Is the grandfather Johann Georg Busch of Easton. Simeon sounds familiar, son of Jacob?

I will need to research this further as all the information I have regarding the family is spelled BUSH, not BUSCH.

Surnames: Bush
Most of the Northampton County Busch families, originally from the Rhineland, being the "PA Dutch", changed to the English Bush spelling in the mid-1790's, as appear in the church and property records.

This was mainly to dissociate themselves from the Hessian folks who kept shooting at them during the war. The Rhinelanders largely despised the Hessians - many of whom settled in PA after the war.

So my Easton and Stroudsburg and Middle Smithfield Busches all changed over to Bush at that time. My Henry Bush was captured by the Hessians in the Battle of Long Island and spent 5 months in the horrid prison ships in New York Harbor. Many PA Militia prisoners starved to death there.

I would like to know your Bush line as mine is from Jan Woutersen Van Der Bosch and some of our Bush line is from PA. You can e-mail me if you like at binkyjr@juno.com

Hi Charlene!
I am searching the same Bush family as you are. Mine are
also from Damascus, Wayne, PA. I am doing the search for
my in-laws. I am back to Simeon Bush, and I think his father
was also Simeon. My in-law in descended from George Bush and
wife Anna Healy Skinner, and their son Reuben who apparently
left the whole family in PA and moved to Indiana abt 1840.
I have found the Bush's on the census in Damascus.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Mari Lorenz (see_kin@lycos.com)
