Son of John Bush and Saray (Coy) Bush.

In 1891, his mother abandoned her family and "ran off" with another man. No further information for her has been found.

In 1895, both Leroy and his younger brother, Willie, are residents of the Orphans Home in Logansport, IN. In a horrific accident involving a coal oil burner, both of the brothers are burned - Leroy later recovers, but Willie dies of his burns. Their father, who was working in another town, returned for the funeral.

Two years later, in 1897, Leroy is sent to Boys School.
