Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Mennonite Vital Records, 1750-2014 for Elias Albert Bushman b. 6 December 1849

Elias Albert Bushman is the youngest brother of my 2nd Great-grandpa, Jacob Bushman.  Elias Albert was born 6 December 1849 in Highland Grove, Iowa, son of Martin and Elizabeth Degen Bushman.  Because his mother was past the age of child bearing when he was born, she considered him a gift from God and called him Elias.  Two years later,  after being driven from their home in Nauvoo, Elias and his family crossed the plains to come to Utah.

About Pennsylvania, Church Records – Adams, Berks, and Lancaster Counties, 1729-1881

Church records are among the best sources for information on vital information prior to the commencement of widespread civil registration of vital statistics. This is because churches usually kept records on the members of their congregations. Church records generally include, but are not limited to births, baptisms, confirmations, marriages, deaths, and burials.

This database contains information on almost 180,000 individuals found in the records of more than fifty early Pennsylvania churches located in Adams, Berks, and Lancaster counties. Information that may be found in this data set includes name of individual, date of event, event type, record ID, relation to principal individual in the record, location, and name of church. The information contained in this data set was extracted from transcriptions of the original church records located and available on microfilm at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
