Narrative:

     William A. Bush was born in Aug 1821 in Kentucky.4,5,6 William appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Castalian Springs, Sumner Co., Tennessee, enumerated 28 Jun 1860, apparently boarding with William and Julia Crinn. He reported his occupation as "gentleman," and reported personal estate of $10,500.11
     William married first Elizabeth [surname unknown].7
     William and Elizabeth appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Gallatin, Sumner Co., Tennessee, enumerated 21 Aug 1870, reporting real estate valued at $8,025 and personal estate of $2,300. Their children Mattie and Robert were listed as living with them, as was Thacker Bush, age 73, who may have been his father.12
     William married second Harriett [surname unknown] on 27 Jan 1879 in Sumner Co., Tennessee, with Rev. S. P. Chesnut officiating.8,9,10
     William and Harriett appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Sumner Co., Tennessee, enumerated 11 Jun 1880. His daughter Mattie was listed as living with him, as was his wife's son by her prior marriage, D. A. Hunter.13

Research Note, 17 Aug 2012:
The marriage record for William and Harriet shows her name as Harriet Hunter. Since she had a son with that surname, it seems likely that was a married name. There is a marriage record in Sumner Co. for Harriet Taylor and David Hunter on 16 Jan 1855, about four years before the birth of her son. It seems reasonable to assume that was her, but no records have been found that substantiate that assumption, so it remains unproven.14
