Groom Name: William Bush
Bride Name: Mary Stayley
Marriage Date: 30 Jun 1844
William was b. 1822 in VA and Mary was b. 1826 VA. I could not find parents for either of them. There were 2 Bush's in the 1840 Census in Botetourt VA and 1 Staley.
Their children were:
Mary C. b. 1848
Andrew M b. 1849
James b. 1851
Virginia b. 1854
Margaret Ellen b. 1856
Joseph W. b. 1859
Rice (spelling on Census) b. 1862
Arnetia b. 1865
You can find them from 1850 through 1930 in the three counties that you mentioned.
Reece was listed as Rice in 1900 and as Baise (or Rease) in 1910
Reece's wife--Mary Hill was daughter of Isaac Hill b. 1827 Ohio. I didn't go any further on that line.
