Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I am Willard M Bush Sr., I'm a 62 year old cancer survivor who presently is living in Marshalls Creek, Pa. I'm originally from Analomink, Monroe County (Pocono Mtns) Pa. I have been doing my family's genealogy since 1986 and find myself in many new and out of the way cemeteries and Burial grounds. I find the quest for family exciting and the rewards great.My grandchildren are the first in 4 generations to know their Grandparents and My goal is to provide them with their family linage at least back to our arrival in this country.
Where I can help others find their lost twigs is my pleasure. Our Linage is Our Birthright.

7th cousin 2x removed
Hi Willard,
Looks like we're 7th cousins 2x removed - Bush, Long, La Barre; Daniel La Barre being my 8th great grandfather. Thanks for all the work you're doing here and making it public so others, like me, can learn our ancestry as well.

Ada E Stillman-Matteson Duplication
Dear Mr. Bush,

Please remove the memorial that you created for Ada E Stillman-Matteson #57355601, created on 19 Aug 2010 as it is a duplication of the memorial that D.J. Crane created on 22 Nov 2009 memorial # 44662738. It is customary that the earlier dated memorial stands in place. Sorry for the inconvenience.

David G Smith

P.S. (Ada E Stillman was my grandmother's relation.)

Mr Bush
I was wondering if we maybe related.
My Grandmother's name was Mahala Bush she married Oliver Holland, Bangor PA.
Her Father was Silas Bush he married Mary Elizabeth Cortright. His Father was John Bush and he married Catherine Mehrkam, his father was John Bush who married Susanna Wolf.
do any of these names sound familiar?
Regards SJJ

Odin Cemetary
Thank you for the picture you took of Odin Cemetary in Pa. You have in the description that it is unmarked. That is no longer the case. It has a sign now stating it is Odin Cemetary.The paved road is Odin Rd (off Pa state Rd. 872)and the dirt road the cemetary is on is Mina Rd.
Thank you again..

Custards and Place families
Hi Will....well we are double or triple cousins removed how many times I don't But we're cousins for sure.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and both James Place (Phebe/Phoebe Winan's husband) and the following other men are my Revolutiony War proven patriots: George Yundt/Jund, Johann Jacob Pfeiffer, Jacob Winans (Phebe's Dad), Benjamin Bunnell, Jacob Transue, Johann Abraham Transue Jr., Casper Metzger, Johann Christian Eilenberger, Abraham Heller, Frederick Neyhart, Jr., Nicholas Best and Johann Simon Heller are all of PA and all my patriots. Do any of the names fit in with you?
I have not yet been able to prove the Custard line as far a a patriot is concerned but I do know my line back to William. Do you have that?
I have info back from this Revolutionary War time on the Winans, Place, Bunnell, Neyhart and Heller families.
I will go through my notes and see what I might have on your Elizabeth you have a birth date for her and her father's name--he would have been William Custard's son? I'll also check my Place info for Mariah...again knowing her parents would help alot. Why don't you email me at my email address: so our conversation and passing of info will be more private. Thanks and maybe we can get somewhere new research wise! Talk soon. Louise Pipher
