Paula: Jesse Bush born 11 Aug 1809, died Luzerne Co., PA Aft. 1860, not James, is who you are looking for. Jesse married Sarah Anna Mack Abt. 1830 Northampton Co., PA. They had at least 7 children, one being Sarah Elizabeth Bush born Feb 1846 Pikes Creek, Luzerne Co., PA. She married William H. Zimmerman Apr 1844 and as far as I can see, all children were born in Luzerne Co., PA. She died 16 Jun 1903 and is buried Shupp Cemetery, Luzerne, PA. I believe William was of German extract and lived his life in the coal mines of Luzerne.

I know he was the son of Jan Bosch (John BUSH) but can't prove it. Too many things click but seeing John Bush was a military man of noted fame, his children were born several places.
