I agree completely about original records vs printed transcripts and books. And I am hoping that by looking deeper into proven descendents of Abraham that somewhere under some mossy rock I will find the answers I need about my own John Housen Bush.
Eva- I really do believe that William Bush ( wife Lester) was the son of Isaac and Hannah Bush. I don't know if that piece of information will ever turn up.
I'll keep you posted and I hope you'll do the same.
