R. T. G. BUSH, a farmer and stock grower in Clark County, Ky., was born in that county, near Boonesboro, November 29, 1836, and is the fourth of a family of five children born to Jeremiah and Adalaide (Tinsley) Bush, of Kentucky, but natives of Virginia. The Bush family first emigrated, in company with Daniel Boone, about 1780, to Kentucky, and settled near what is now known as Boonesboro, Madison County, it being known for many years as Bush’s Settlement. Captain William Bush, a brother of the great-grandfather of R. T. G. Bush, was the first one to settle there, bringing with him a colony from Virginia. Jeremiah Bush was a son of Ambrose Bush, and early settler, who followed farming all his life. R. T. G. Bush was brought up on the farm, and received a common-school education. November 7, 1871, he married Mary B. Curtis, daughter of George W. and Minerva (Coy) Curtis, of Madison County, Ky. Seven children have been born to this marriage, four daughters and three sons, viz: Roy J., Curtis, Julia a., Bonnie G., Benjamin W., Bettie M. and Thomas B. Curtis died in infancy. Mr. Bush settled where he now resides in 1875, where he owns a fine farm and has for many years devoted attention to breeding Shorthorn cattle. Politically he is a Democrat.
