Jacob J. Bushong Passes Away

Many friends throughout Rockingham County and the New Market community mourn
with the family in the death of Jacob J. Bushong, 82 years of age, who died
early last Friday morning, October 29, 1948, at the home of his son-in-law
and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Lee Wilkins, at 918 South 19th Street,
Arlington, Va. He had been on a visit to his daughter when he became
paralyzed on October 1st. Pneumonia then developed which caused his death.
Since the death of his wife, Mrs. Betty Arehart Bushong, on October 10, 1944
Mr. Bushong had made his home with his children, spending considerable time
in New Market with his son, Mr. Homer R. Bushong. He was a kind and loving
father and a man of fine ideals. Early in boyhood, he was confirmed a
member of the Lutheran Church and held his membership in later years with
Emmanuel-St. Matthew's congregation of New Market. A son of the late Peter

they established their home on a farm near Timberville, where they resided
for 13 years. In 1919, they removed to the former Grim farm, southeast of
New Market, where they lived until 1935. He is the father of nine children,
three of whom died in infancy. Surviving children are Homer R. Bushong, of
New Market; Mrs. Florence Wilkins, of Arlington, Va.; Samuel J. Bushong, of
