Mandana Isabelle "Belle" (Bush) GASTON was the Grand-daughter of Thurston County, WA pioneer George Washington and Isabella (James) BUSH, and she was the daughter of William Owen and Mandana (Smith) BUSH.

From what I can find in records and articles, Mandana preferred to go by her nickname "Belle".

"Belle" married an immigrant from Nova Scotia named George GASTON, son of Moses and Ann (MacDonald) GASTON (my 3x Great-Grandparents on my Dad's side), in 1883 in Thurston County, WA. They produced two children that I can find so far: George William and Annie Belle (Gaston) Sutcliffe.

At the time of her death, Belle's husband George was the "County Assessor" [Thurston? Olympia?], and they were living in Olympia on Seventeenth St. She was buried, however, back near her family's homestead in Tumwater.
