Phyllis Baughman Bush and James W. Bush Remembrance
  Phyllis Baughman Bush passed away on December 6, 2011 in Hanover, Pennsylvania. Shortly afterwards we were informed that Ischua Valley Historical Society was remembered in her will. She was born December 14th, 1929 and was the daughter of the late Clifford and Jenny Alban Baughman. She was the wife of more than 43 years of James W. Bush who died in 1995.

She requested that the gift be in memory of her husband who had grown up in Cadiz and attended Ten Broeck Academy. She had at one time worked for the FBI, and later taught junior high school English and reading for the Hanover Schools from 1957 to 1984. After retiring, she served as a Board member for the Hanover Public Schools and also as the first Pastoral Assistant for St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church. She enjoyed traveling extensively all over the world.
Her husband, James W. Bush, was born on November 3rd, 1931 in Franklinville. He was the son of Wesley H. and Jesslyn Simonds Bush. He grew up on the family farm in Cadiz. He graduated from Ten Broeck Academy and attended American University in Washington, D.C. and St. Bonaventure University. He was a sergeant in the U.S. Army and a veteran of the Korean War. He had worked for the FBI and later as a Fine Paper salesman.

He passed away December 12, 1995 after a long illness. He was predeceased by his parents and two sisters, Joyce Bush Annesley and Ruth Bush Isaman. James Bush was also a member of the Ishua Valley Historical Society. This year we will celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Cadiz. The Board of Directors of IVHS hopes to use part of this legacy for a project in Cadiz in memory of James W. Bush.
