Elizabeth Degen Bushman, my 3rd Great-grandmother died on this day, 21 May, in 1878 in Lehi, Utah at age 75. She left a wonderful posterity. Of her 10 children, 3 died as young children and 2 died crossing the plains in 1846.
Here are the 5 children of Martin Bushman and Elizabeth Degen Bushman who lived to adulthood. Bottom left: Jacob Bushman, Sarah Ann Bushman Rhodes, Elias Albert Bushman. Top left: John Bushman, Martin Bushman.
These sons and daughter had 69 children!
