He was married in 1876 to Jennie A. Smith, who passed away in 1883, and to this union was born one child, John M. Bush, with whom he has made his home for the past twenty-two years, and who with five grandchildren and three great-greatchildren survive him. He also leaves to mourn his loss three brothers, Wm. P. of Gilmore City, Iowa, James H. of Leavenworth, Kansas, and O. P. Bush of Altoona, Penn.; and four sisters, Luella Bush, Elizabeth Bush, Emma Stott and Mary J. Lumadue.
