Scope and Content

These mixed documents form a collection, which include a small journal and two documents detailing the distribution of James Bush's property among his heirs. Written in the journal, in pencil and in a different hand, are Bush's birth and death date, and land claim numbers for acreage in Clark County, Kentucky, allotted in 1833. His Revolutionary War claim number was 51776 and the parcel number was 7122. Bush most likely owned a sawmill since many of the entries into the journal concern lumber orders and costs. Also recorded in the journal is an 1805 trip to Charleston, South Carolina, via New Orleans.
