A Trip to Bush Land, Virginia

by  Harry G. Enoch

 In June 2015, my wife Clare and I took a five-day journey through Virginia visiting four of the five counties where John Bush—grandfather of Captain Billy Bush—once lived. Part research trip and part vacation, our time was not spent pouring through courthouse records and dusty library tomes. Instead, we went to get a first-hand view, on the ground, of the actual places where John lived. We have a special interest in these places, as Clare is a John Bush descendant, and we live in the Bush Settlement founded by Captain Billy Bush in Clark County, Kentucky.

Garths Run

 Our destination was Garth Run, the site of John’s last homestead.
