2013 BUSH GATHERING CANCELLED

posted Jul 15, 2013, 2:22 PM by Nathan Bush   [ updated Jul 15, 2013, 2:23 PM ]

I regret to inform you that the Bush Family Association gathering planned for Edgefield SC this coming weekend must be cancelled. There are very, very few of us registered to attend this year.  In addition, the individual scheduled to provide our Saturday program has had a personal family matter come up and is unable to be with us, leaving us with very little to offer for your trouble and expense in making the trip .

If you wish to come to Edgefield anyway, the Thompkins Genealogical Library is open on Friday and Saturday and would be available for your use.  There is a good bit of Bush family data on file there, and the staff is very helpful. Also the Edgefield County Archives is open on Friday. Their staff, also, is more than willing to assist in your research.

As far as I know, the 2014 gathering will be this same weekend, and ordinarily is held in Laurel, MS in even-numbered years. You will receive more information about that in due time.

Your registration payment ($25 per person) will be refunded soon.

With sincere regrets and apologies, 
JOHN BUSH, President

2013 Bush Family Reunion Registration

posted Apr 9, 2013, 7:36 PM by Nathan Bush

We will be meeting at the Thompkins Genealogical Library, located right on the town square in Edgefield. Their VERY extensive collection is available for our use for private research, and their (volunteer) staff is always very helpful.  The courthouse, with all of its records, is just half a block away.

On Saturday, our good cousin Zach Bush will lead our convoy on a tour of Bush family sites in the area, including the two Baptist churches established by Prescott.

Please begin now helping to get this initial information out to everyone.  More details will follow...

Hope all of you are well.
