- More than a genealogy of the Bush and Barrett families, this book weaves a rich tapestry of interwoven events, places and people. Follow their parallel journeys from Massachusetts, New Hampshire and early New York State into Ohio where, at last, they come together.
The progenitors of the Bush and Barrett families all came to the newly formed colony of Plymouth in the early 1600’s. Since there were few settlements at that time, it is reasonable their paths should cross. It does seem, however that their connection to each other transcends coincidence.
This is a book you and your family will treasure for years to come. Five lines are highlighted, however many more are mentioned. Maybe you'll find some background on your relatives!

Mayflower to Missouri
1620 - 2006
Genealogies: Alvord, Avery, Bush, Barrett, Beedle (Bedel), Cleveland, Hopkins
These families all took part in the settling of early Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York State, Michigan and Ohio. They were founders and first settlers. They were physicians and farmers. They served in the French and Indian, Revolutionary, Civil and two World Wars. One was a "witch" and another, "America's First Poetess." They were the backbone of America, braving hostile Indians and wild animals. They were in the forefront as each new frontier opened. And each has a story.

by Ruth Bush
We did not want or see the need of you,
The wages of a middle-aged and almost temperate love,
You were not in our plans for life, you were an afterthought.
Our half-grown ones completely filled our need for pride and joy.
And then you came—we held you warm and soft within our arms.
You looked at us with dark and yet unseeing eyes.
And then we knew, although unwanted, through the miracle of tardy birth
O little one, you were transfigured into our last but almost best beloved.
