There may be 3 Bushman family branches. -One apparently was started by someone french, not even named Bushman, but got changed to Bushman after coming from Canada into the U.S. -There is my branch from Westkilver, Germany and they wound up in Pemberville, Ohio. My branch is of the Lutheran persuasion. -Another branch apparently started from elsewhere in Germany, and settled in the U.S. in other places than Pemberville. Some of them are of the Mormon persuasion. -I may have it wrong, but that seems to be the overall picture that I have.
