I suspect that "Busrow" may refer to the area in which there was a Shaker community from about 1811 to 1814, more or less.Can anyone confirm, correct, and/or amend that suspicion?
(b)On October 6th, 1812, General Samuel Hopkins wrote a letter to Governor William Henry Harrison from "Camp Busseron."
I suspect that "Camp Busseron" and "Busrow" above refer to the same location.Can anyone confirm, correct, and/or amend that suspicion?
