Bio Photo Hi,
I have been hugely in to genealogy for about 10 years now. I started researching with my Aunt. I absolutely love doing it and if I can help other people by adding cemeteries and pictures in my area then its all worth it. Our area is very lucky to have so many people volunteering. I have seen alot of websites that have nothing especially in the genweb.I have two children Heather 22, and Chris 19. I work in our area hospital as an office assistant and ward medical secretary.

James Rush
I just happen to be reading your messages about James Rush and William Alonzo Rush.
My son and I are planning to visit the grave of James Rush at the Boggstown cemetery. It is my understanding from what I have heard in the
rumor mill the tombstone of James Rush has been damaged. To what extent I do not know. I do know my son and I wish to have it repaired.
James Rush is my 4 times grandfather and of course my son's 5 times grandfather.

The picture showing Charlie Rush standing beside James Rush's tombstone was my grandfather's brother.

My grandfather; William Alonzo Rush (named after his grandfather) is buried in the Ever Rest cemetery in Logansport Indiana. Robert Rush (my grandfather's dad) is buried in the Walton Indiana cemetery. Robert was born in 1864 and died in 1940.
My grandfather had a brother named George that died from the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1917 or 1918.

My son is trying to research Benjamin Rush. We have been told we are related to Benjamin.
Benjamin was the first Surgeon General of the US.

Thank you very much for making the various changes to the Rush family memorials. I appreciate it! By the way, was that one memorial (I think it was William Alonzo) every removed by Find-a-grave?

RE: George rush
Thank you for the information, Dena. That's too bad about that guy who does stuff like that. You can contact Find-a-grave about duplicates and they'll make them take theirs down if yours was up first. Here's where you contact them:

Good luck!

Robert M. Rush
Thanks so much for updating the memorial for Robert M. Rush. I appreciate your help! My great-grandmother was Harriet Smith Rush from Shelby Co. IN. My cousin, Mike, and I have been working on this line but are "brick walled" after James Rush. If you have any information about his parents, it would be gratefully received!

Thanks so much,
Judith W.
