Euel was the fifth son of eleven sons (no girls) born to Caswell Clayton Bush (Jul. 1854 - Jun. 26, 1932) and Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Raye (Dec. 1861 - Dec 1921)

Married to Nancy "Ruth" Sullivan on Nov. 22, 1914 until her death Aug. 31, 1944. Married at the home of her parents William Absalom and Mary Ellen Sullivan.

Euel and Nancy Ruth had five children:
Arlie V. Bush (Aug. 30, 1915 - Jun. 7,1985)
Lloyd Bennett Bush (Feb. 24, 1919 - Apr. 28, 1969)
Adrian Douglas "Dick" Bush (Feb. 1, 1923 - Feb. 4, 1987)
Bonnie Ruth Bush (May 22, 1927 - Oct. 15, 2011)
Hazel "Myreta" Bush (Mar. 7, 1930)

After Nancy Ruth's death, he married again to a recent widow Nora Lillian Lee Cobb (Jun. 19, 1894 - Aug. 14, 1986). Nora brought to her marriage one daughter Ruby L. Cobb (1920 -).

Leaving a farm in the 1930's due to the Texas dust bowl, Euel and Nancy drove to Orange, CA to start a new life with 17 cents. Only 3 children could fit in the car so the two older boys rode the rails to meet them. He worked as a carpenter assisting in the building of Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm.

"Grandpa Bush", as we called him, had 13 grandchildren and many great grandchildren.
