The Last Will and Testament of Adam Bush.

In the name of God amen. I Adam Bush of Harrison County and commonwealth of Virginia being in sound mind and memory but being weak and debilitated from old age, do make this my last will and testament, in manner following that is to say, to wit, -
First I give and bequeath all my personal property to Margaret Bush ‎(widow and relict of my son Adam Bush)‎ with whom I live) to be by her enjoyed, during her life, and if any part thereof shall remain at her decease, then my will is that such remainder shall go to and be the rightful property of her son Palser to be by him his heirs and assigns forever enjoyed.
Whereas I have heretofore given to my son John Bush now deceased Two Hundred acres of land on Buckhannon River which was all the Estate were by me given to him and as his portion as one of my children, and whereas I made a verbal contract with my said son John for one hundred acres of land on Freeman’s Creek a branch of the West fork River which I was to convey to him in a certain time provided he paid to me twenty five pounds, which the said John never did pay nor any part thereof and since that contract was forfeited, I, as I had a right to do conveyed said land to Adam Hickman, and by said Hickman since conveyed to John Smith who now is in possession thereof rightfully. I have also given all the rest of my children their portion as children. -
I nominate and appoint my said Daughter in Law Margaret Bush executrix of this my last Will and Testament, and to exercise the functions of such Executrixship without entering into bond or giving security. Hereby revoking all other or former wills or bequeaths heretofore made or executed by me.
In testimony whereof I the said George Adam Bush do hereunto set my hand and affix my seal on this fifteenth day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eleven.

Signed sealed delivered and pronounced to us by George Adam Bush as his last will and Testament & as witnesses thereto do set our hands:

Archibald B. Wilson, David Hickman, Josiah D. Wilson, Jas. L. Tingle, Paultz Butcher, Adam Smith

His mark ‎(C B)‎ - George A. Bush………

At a court held for Lewis county September term 1820 this last will and testament of George A. Bush was presented in open court & proved by the oath of Paulser Butcher * Adam Smith according to law and admitted to record a copy.
Teste - D. Stringer C.L.C.

He came to America with his family aboard the ship Hope, arriving at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 28 Aug 1733 at age 13.
He is reported to have married Dorothea Katterman. However, Pendleton County, ‎(W)‎V records list his wife as Susannah. One source says that George was married three times, however no names are mentioned.
George Bush took the oath of naturalization in Augusta County, VA 21 JUN 1763.
Susannah's name is recorded in a Pendleton County land transaction recorded in Deed book 11, p. 435: "16 Nov 1763, George Bush and Susannah to Sebastian Hoover, 116 acres on the South Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac..." George and Susannah probably lived near the village of Upper Tract in Pendleton County.
The family moved to Harrison County, ‎(W)‎V in the late 1700s. A Harrison County land transaction: "William hacker Sr., 400 acres on the West Fork adjoining lands of George Bush, to include his settlement, made in 1779."
George Bush's will, dated 11 Oct 1811, was probated in the September 1820 term of the court of Harrison County, ‎(W)‎V, indicating that he died that year.
Susannah had died before George Adam made his will.

John Michael Bush, George Adam Bush, and Lodwick Bush are listed as signing on 13 Jan 1738 a petition to create Berks County, Pennsylvania, USA.
There are two George Bush one married Mary Ancrum. Another one had four wives Elizabeth; Ann Dorothea Katterman married on 17 Jan 1750; Catherine Stump married after Anna Dorethea death and died before 1769 because of her father's will was written with at least one child Catherine; and Susannah was listed in George's will. I do not know which children are with which wivies.
