  Daniel D. Bush was born in Gilmer county, on July 18, 1826.  His parents, Paulser, and Elizabeth Heckart Bush, being pioneers of that county.
 He married Miss Nancy Riddel, daughter of George M. Riddel, whas was also a native of Gilmer; and in 1873, came to Auburn, where he remained until February 24, 1906, when he passed to his final home.  And in the Auburn cemetery his body rests.
 He was a man of unimpeachable character, and his memory will long be revered.  He served as a Union soldier in Company G, Tenth West Virginia Infantry Volunteers, being mustered out at the end of two years, owing to physical disability.
 He was the father of ten children:  Eustace, the youngest son, and Laura have passed on; J. N., and Mrs. Josephine Kniseley Marclay Wilson, reside in Oklahoma; Charley, in Wirt county; Mrs. Mittie (J. C.) Lawson, at Auburn; Eva, who first married Charles Oldaker, is now Mrs. Robert A. Henderson, of Auburn;  Florence Marie, is the widow of the late Okey J. Cooper, of Newberne; Olive Pearle is Mrs. S. C. Phillips, of Smithville; and Drusilla, with her mother, lives at Auburn.
 The last three daughters named were skillfull musicians, and their little "stringed-band" was a feature of no little enjoyment to the traveling public who patronized their hotel, while they were at home.
 The Bushes came from Germany.  The original family on this side of the water consisted of five brothers and four sisters, and one or more half-brothers, namely, Peter, Jacob, Henry, John, George, Susan, Barbara, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Adam Bush-- the half-brother; and from these brothers the many different families of this name, scatered throughout this and other states, are descended.
 The exact time of their migration to America is not known, but it must have been shortly before the Revolution, as Peter Bush took up arms in defense of his adopted country, in her struggle for liberty.
 Neither is it known where they first settled, but they landed at Philadelphia upon their arrival here.
 The late Daniel C. Bush, of this town, was descended from Adam Bush, the half-brother, above mentioned--Adam being his grandsire.
 But Daniel S. Bush, of Harrisville, Mrs. Elizabeth Bush Heckart Fling, and Mrs. Elsie Fling, wife of F. G. Fling, of Burnt House; and Mrs. Mary Goff, of Hazelgreen, familiarly known as "Aunt Polly," are all descended from  Jacob, who married Miss Margaret Flesher, and came from Lewis county to Gilmer in pioneer days, and settled at the mouth of Leading creek, where he and his wife sleep.
 Mrs. Elizabeth Fling and Mrs. Mary Goff, are the granddaughters of Jacob, the former being the daughter of Henry and Margaret Snyder Bush; and the latter, the daughter of George Bush, who was designated as "Surveyor George Bush."
And Mrs. Elsie Fling and Daniel S. Bush are the great-grandchildren of Jacob.  Mr. Bush being the son of Jacob H. Bush, and the grandson of Henry; and Mrs. Fling the daughter of George W. Bush, and the granddaughter of Henry.
 All the other families of this name in this, and Gilmer counties, belong to this same stock.
