After Emanuel's death, she came out west with her daughters Mary Ann, Nellie, and Virginia… and probably her son John Archibald as he died in Portland, OR. She settled in Oakesdale, (Whitman Co) WA where she died and is interred.

The following is from an 1883 bio of her husband, Emanuel:
"six children, three sons and three daughters: William Tupper, born August 12, 1856, died June 22, 1882, soon after having graduated from the Missouri Medical College, in the class of 1881-2; John Archibald; born April 17, 1859, and now in the mercantile establishment of J. W. Keyser, at Calhoun; Richard Ira, born March 25, 1861, and died in February following; Mary Ann, born March 28, 1863, married E. H. Fox, of Henry County; Eleanor L., born September 6, 1870; and Virginia A., born June 3, 1872."

Mrs. Mary Bushnell, aged 90 years, died Monday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. F. McCroskey, at Oakesdale, where she has resided since 1900."
