Moses Eason Bush was originally from Alabama. His father died when he
was young and he lived with his sister Jane until he was "of age." He
came to Bossier Parish from Barbour County AL in the mid 1850's. I'm
pretty sure he came with his brother William J. Bush, and possibly
others. He had at least 3 land patents near Plain Dealing. He served
in the Civil War as a Private, Company B, 30th Louisiana Infantry
(Gray's). His 3 surviving children all ended up in southwestern
Arkanses in Little River County. I can't find a burial place for Moses,
his first wife MaryElla or his second wife Mary P. (Dennis).
