Surnames: Bushby, Aulstroupt, Jackson, Bernhardt, Hall

Thomas Bushby, from Scotland, married Rosalind James of
St. Croix and their daughter was Sarah Jane Busby, who
married Wilheim Aulstroupt.

Jans Peter Aulstroupt, a soldier from Denmark, married
Sara Jackson of St. Croix. Their son was Wilheim
Aulstroupt.

Can you tell me book titles which I can obtain that
include local history of the current history of the
current inhabitants living in St. Croix in the 1800s?

To illustrate: Jans Peter Aulstroupt had fought in the
Battle of Waterloo defending Denmark from invasion by
Napoleon.

Because he had developed Rheumatoid Arthiritis, he had an
audience with the King of Denmark to return his sword.
Because he had fought well , the King permitted him to
keep his sword. He left for a warmer climate. Thus, he
reached St. Croix.

The Indian indentured servant who is the original ancestor
to whom you referred may be the brother to one of my
Great-grandparents,Charles Branch Bernhardt and
Jane(Hall).

All the other names refer to my husband's family.
I saw a picture of Sarah Jane Bushby, my husband's
Great-grandmother. She looked just like my 3rd cousin
when she was in her 20s.The families may very well be
related as I have suspected and you pointed out.

I would appreciate any info. If you find somethng to copy
about the families, I would mail any copying cost fees and
postage.

I want to pass on their heritage accurately to my
children.Thanks.
