Martha Bush was my great-great grandmother. She was born in June, 1822, in Georgia. Her brother was Jasper Bush. She married Charles Gaines Shults (Shoults) May 19, 1843 and lived in Talladega, AL at first, near Jasper who married Nancy Ann Shults. In the 1850 census, there are 3 children named with Charles and Martha in Talladega Co, AL. They were found next in Rockford, Coosa County, AL. in 1860. They are living next door to another of Martha's Brother's, Hiram Bush. He died in 1864 and it was probably during the Civil War in Kentucky.
Charles and Martha eventually settled in the Bibb/Chilton Co. area, where I live. They had 9 children, possibly one or 2 more that died early. My great-grandfather was the next to youngest, Clarke Weldon Shoults. Charles and Martha are both buried about 20 miles away from me, in Chilton Co., Pleasant Grove Baptist Church #2 Cemetery. I have been researching the Shoults family (name was changed from Shults to Shoults somewhere along the way) and wanted to share what info I have with you. I am still working on our family tree but my relatives and I have collected extensive information on their descendants.
I'm not sure where Mr. Wesson came from as Martha's spouse. Have found no reference to him. Would love to know about him!
