Richfield Springs Mercury, April 19, 1900
Elijah Bush was born at Freysbush and was a resident of this section until 1860, when he removed to Springfield, which has since been his home. He is well remembered here by older residents as a builder and contractor, he having been interested in the construction of C.L.I. For some years he has lived a retired life though a man of strong intellect and robust body almost to the day of his death.
Deceased is survived by two sons, Dr. P. E., of New York, Ephraim, Leadville, Col.; five daughters, Mrs. Charles Wilsey, Johnstown, Mrs. L. Wilsey, Jersey City, Mrs. Adam Flint, Philadelphia, Mrs. John McKellip, Mrs. Charles Doran, Springfield; three brothers, Peter, Freysbush, Daniel, Girard, Mich., John, Ottawa, Mich.; and three sisters, also of Girard, Mich., Elizabeth, Margaret, and another, whose name we have not learned.
