1780 - after 1836
CATHARINE EVERHART married JACOB RUSH on 19
November 1798. If she were eighteen at the time of the marriage, she would have
been born ca.1780 when the family was living in Lebanon Township of Lancaster
wrote a note dated 17 November 1798, giving permission for the marriage. The
witness on the note was Jacob Kiser, sometimes spelled Kyser.
WILLIAM OHLER was on
the bond with JACOB RUSH. Catharine's sister, Mary had married William Ohler in
1793, but he had signed his name. This William Ohler signed with an X, so he
may not have been the brother-in-law.
We believe that Jacob and Catharine Everhart Rush
either accompanied her family to Hawkins County or followed them there. The
first census available for Hawkins County (1830) has a Katherine Rush age
between 50 and 60 living south of the Holston River near many other families
that came from Rockingham County. In Kathrine Rush' household were two males.
One between 18 and 20 and one between 20 and 30.
Katherine Rush was taxed for 100 acres in 1836.
Living near her not owning land but 21 years of age or older were Henry and
John Rush. They were probably the males listed in her household in 1830.
