Stephen Bushee Sr., wife and family all moved to Rupert, Bennington County, VT about 1801.The male children that I know of were: Stephen Jr., Benjamin, and Brayton Bushee of Rupert in the County of Bennington and State of Vermont and Jeremiah Bushee of Powlet in the County of Rutland & State of Vermont
Stephen married and moved to Chautauqua NY about 1837.
Your nieces father may have been descended from one of the remaining males. I located my half brother by hiring a person from the Buffalo NY genealogy library to look up some records.You could possibly hire someone from the Bennington library to look up birth records. Go to www.switchboard.com and type in Bushee in Bennington VY.you will come up with several Bushee families.LOOK BELOW. Good Luck,
