The Martin & Elizabeth Bushman Children

Bushman, Jacob, John, Martin B., Sarah, Elias Albert

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!

We remember and celebrate our dear Elizabeth today.degen-elizabeth-portrait2015-5-memorial-day-162015-5-memorial-day-15
