Richard died intestate in 1828. It's not clear whether he died in Mississippi or in Augusta. His administrator was Littleberry Bush. William Tutt became administrator after Littleberry died in 1829. The estate was settled in 1845. The legatees included James Pace, widower of Sarah Ann Bush, the estate of Richard F. Bush, and Green B. (Greenberry) Bush. The estate papers are almost unreadable, but I don't think there is any mention of Patsey Wimberly, who is believed to have died in 1827, or William H. Bush who died in 1828. Mrs. Sarah Bush was mentioned, and it's my guess that the estate was settled because she had recently passed away.
