| || Notes for Wilmouth or Wilmoth Camp:|
[Barton, Melanie, see OE address book]
A record which may be relevant: in a book entitled "Record of Pennsylvania Marriages Prior to 1810, Vol. 1, re: Christ Church, Philadelphia", p. 223, "1743, June 2 - Rush, John to Wilmouth Camp." From the A. Bertha McGeehan Collection is : "1743, John Rush m. unknown, Lower Dublin Township, Philadelphia" and "1752 Administrations of Philadelphia; Wilmoth Rush, widow of John; money for 2 children of John; Thomas Rush mentioned; Crispen Collet, Byberry, Bond' and "1756, Wilmoth Stuart m., by 1756, to Daniel Stuart."
The name Wilmouth has definitely been handed down. My grandmother, Fay, used it as the name for my aunt, Wilmoth Emmor Moulton. Given the year of birth as 1752 for Hester, I cannot help believing that this John Rush and Wilmoth Camp are her parents.
I have an extensive Rush family genealogy but lack one link to conect our Rush with Benjamin Rush, "the signer", through Silas Crispin and Hester Holme, as well as the Penn family. If John Rush is the son of Hester Crispin Rush, and I think he is, then there is much information available on the Rush line. Available information goes back to John Rush and Susanna Lucas, from England in the 1600s. Holmes, Penn and Crispen go back even farther.
