MUSHRUSH posted by Karl D. Dennis on Saturday, November 16, 1996

I am looking for information on the MUSHRUSH surname, including the original name and country of origin. I am a descendent of Michael MUSHRUSH, who after spending some time near Pittsburgh, settled in Crawford Co. Penna. prior to 1800. He also had a sister Rosanah, who settled in the same area, and a brother Solomon MUSHRUSH, about whom I know nothing. The 1850 Ohio census shows a Solomon MUSHRUSH in Jefferson county at that time. I believe that Mushrushes still live in the Steubenville area. The 1800 Penna census also shows a George MUSHRUSH IN Allegheny Co, and a Jacob MUSHRUSH in Washington Co.
