James Bush

Show Family Line James Bush >> Thomas Bush >> Urbane Bush >> Robert Bush >> John Bush >> Savilla Bush >> Maida George
James Bush married Fanny Jarrett in Lancaster county on March 8th, 1782. They had multiple children, but only their son, Thomas, was listed by name in the will of James.

James Bush wrote his will on August 15th, 1791 and stated that he was "sick and weak, but of perfect sense and memory." He lent the use of all his estate real and personal to his wife, Fanny, during her widowhood for both her maintenance and the education and maintenance of "my children." At the death or marriage of his wife, James instructed that his land, plantation and gun should go to his son Thomas and the remainder of his estate should be equally divided "among all my children." He named his wife and brother as the executors of his will.

The will was not recorded until July 20th, 1812 in Lancaster county court. James may have recovered from his illness and lived many more years without updating his will, or he may have died soon after the 1791 writing and the will remained unrecorded until Thomas was old enough to take the land in his own name.
