I have been working on my mother's family to help her remember her relatives better but then I caught the ancestry bug and can't stop! Her mother's mother was a Rush, Maria Bell(e). I have followed that line to William Rush, born in 1615, who immigrated to this country and settled in Virginia. All my life I was told, as my mother was told and her mother before her, that we were kin to Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Indendence. I decided to find the exact connection but it has been very difficult so far. Until I Googled (again) and discovered your family tree. You have a clear connection, they were brothers. Please tell me what your source for this information was, for it is good news indeed to me and my family. Thank you for being so complete! Patricia
