Biography of Henry Bushman

Bushman, Henry, was born in Cayuga county, N. Y., January 18, 1821, a son of Jacob and Martha (Halstead) Bushman. Jacob Bushman was also a native of Cayuga county; his father, John Bushman, was from Gettysburg, Pa. Jacob purchased land from the Holland Co., which he cleared for cultivation, and through life was a farmer; the property still remains in the possession of his son Henry; he died in 1860. Henry Bushman was educated in the common schools, and throughout his long life has been a successful farmer; he has served his town as assessor for nine years, and is a worthy, substantial man, whose standing among his fellows is enviable. On October 1, 1846, he was married to Sarah J., daughter of John Mills. Mrs. Bushman died April 17, 1897, in her seventy-second year; her husband and two daughters-Mrs. Mary E. Kellogg and Mrs. J. F. Rose-survive her.
