George Thadeous Bush

On this day, 2 May 1904, George Thadeous Bush died in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. He was my spouse’s 2nd great-grandfather.

George Thadeous Bush was born on 25 January 1856, in Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. He was the first-born child of David Byron Bush and Jane Timblin, who were married on 16 November 1854, in Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

Together, his parents would have 10 known children (from eldest to youngest): George Thadeous, Hester Ann, James Clark, Elizabeth Catharine, Margaret E., Ida Eva, Jacob L., Samuel, John M., and Byron Joseph.

On 22 August 1860, five-year old George Thadeous Bush was residing with his parents, sister Hester, and brother James in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. His father was a farmer, and his mother was a housewife. The value of the farm was estimated at $400, and the value of their personal property was estimated at $170. Also residing with them was a 12-year old male named Madison Ayres. As the name Ayres is not a known family surname, perhaps this boy was a farm hand.

On 27 July 1870, George Thadeous Bush, now 15-years old, was residing with his parents and siblings in Canoe Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. His father was a blacksmith, and his mother was a housewife. Their real estate was estimated at $500, and their personal property was estimated at $200.

On 31 December 1877, George Thadeous Bush married Mary Ann “Anna” Roush in Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 21 June 1879, daughter Bertha May Bush was born in Perry Township, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.

On 5 June 1880, George Thadeous Bush was residing with his wife and daughter in Perry Township, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania. Also living with him was his 13-year old sister Eva. George was employed as a farm laborer, possibly working at his father-in-law Samuel D. Roush’s farm next-door.

On 5 November 1880, George and Mary Ann welcomed another daughter to the world, Laura V. Bush.

On 26 May 1882, daughter Nora Ella Bush was born in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 29 Apr 1884, daughter Margaret “Maggie” Bush was born.

Then, on 11 December 1885, after four girls, a son named Albert Leroy Bush as born.

He was followed two years later by son Samuel Elmer Bush, who was born 30 March 1887, in Covode, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 15 March 1889, daughter Myrtle Blanche Bush (my spouse’s great-grandmother) was born in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

The next child to be born to George and Mary Ann was a daughter Lillie Bush, who arrived on 17 August 1890. Sadly, she died that same day.

On 24 September 1891, they were blessed with another daughter, Lula “Lulu” Mabel Bush.

On 11 August 1893, daughter Effie Alean Bush was born in Rayne Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 31 October 1895, son Arthur Klock Bush was born in Covode, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 12 October 1897, son Murray Miles Bush was born in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 7 June 1900, George Thadeous Bush, his wife, and their 11 of their children were residing on their farm in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

On 30 May 1901, his namesake George Thadeous Bush, Jr. was born in North Mahoning Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. On 28 February 1902, a few months before his first birthday, baby George died.

After 13 children, with two dying as infants, one would think that George and Mary Ann might be apprehensive about having any other children. However, that was not the case. On 10 October 1903, the couple welcomed son Charles “Chuck” Franklin Bush to the family. He would be their final child.

Sometime in late April 1904, George Thadeous Bush contracted pneumonia, and on 2 May 1904, he died. He was only 48 years old. He left behind his parents. nine siblings, his wife, and 12 children.

George Thadeous Bush was buried at Covode Presbyterian Cemetery, Indiana County, Pennsylvania, near his babies Lillie and George.
