I am researching the link between Philip Roush (Rausch) and Frederick Roush which is the Roush line that I decend from. According the Vol. 2 (?) Chapter XVI of "the Hisotry of The Roush Family in America" Philip was a Rhine Bavarian arrived in America prior to the Revolutionary War. The book states that Frederick was his son (b.1789 d. 2/12/1844 in Stark Co. OH) who married Anna Maria Haflegh (Hafelich) in3/23/1869. I only have a few pages of the book that a family member sent to me.
My dilemma is this- Is this Philip the oldest son (b. 1741 d. 1820) who was one of a group of brothers who fought in the revolutionary war or is he from another branch of the family. I cannot find any other link between Philip and Frederick.
