He was a member of a military band when the Canadian InsurrectIon occurred in 1837-8 and was in the engagement known as the battle of the windmills, at the outlet of Lake Champlain. In this war Canada tried to get rid of English rule.
In 1841, with eight other young men he went to Ft. Wayne, Ind., to install a woolen factory. At the time Ft. Wayne was an important trading post for the Pottawattomie Indians. Col. Winfield Scott was in command of the post at the time, Mr. Brush joined the command of Col. Scott in 1848 and he helped to move the Indians. 1.500 strong to their new reservation beyond the Missouri river. On the first of October of that year he with 500 other soldiers and the band of Indians arrived at Nebraska City, which was then Ft. Kearney. The first camp was on the farm owned by J. Sterling Morton and Major Brush killed a buffalo near the mouth of the creek on that farm. Afterwards camps were made at Camp Creek, Glenrock, and Pawnee City. Elk and buffalo were plentiful in the county at the time.
He mustered out In the spring of the following year and he returned to his home in Vermont. He told stories of the wonderfully fertile land of the west and urged people to go out and settle there. Finally his father warned him to quit as he would get the reputation of being the biggest liar on earth.
When James K. Polk issued his call for 50,000 troops to fight Mexico. Major Brush again enlisted to the army. He was a member of the army of the West and was with it when it was assembled at Ft. Leavenworth. He was mustered in at New York City, and was a member of the 2nd Indiana infantry. He took part In the battles of Buena Vista. Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo. He served in this war three years and fifteen days.
In 1850. with a wagon train of fifty vehicles, he again visited Nebraska. He was with a party of gold seekers that were on their way overland to California.

He had as borders (sic) at his place such well-known Nebraska pioneers as Patrick Daugherty, of South Auburn, Dr. H. L. Matthews who died a few years ago; Jesse Cole. sr., and his two sons, John and Jesse, jr., and a man named Robinson, who afterwards kept the American house at Brownville.
The major enlisted in the army again at the outbreak of the civil war and was in a number of sharp engagements and battles. He came to this county in 1865, at the conclusion of the civil war and was for years one of the most highly respected citizen. He first located in London precinct. A number of years ago he came to Auburn and on every Fourth of July, and on Decoration day for years and years, until he finally became incapicated (sic), he played the drum while Wm. Paris played the fife.
Among the other things that distinguished Major Brush, was the fact that he was undoubtedly the oldest Mason in the state. He joined the organization when he was twenty-one years of age and was a member of the order for 69 years. He was initiated in the historic Vergennes lodge, at Vergennes, Vt.
Major Brush was a man of the strongest character. He was a true patriot, honest and upright in everything that he did. He was a member of the M. E. church. The funeral took place Tuesday morning and was very largely attended. The interment was in the family plat in London cemetery where the major lived for so many years.
The bereaved relatives and family have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. submitted by Dan Hill | Top |
