Thank you for the guidance. I'm trying to understand the link between Ellen Bush and Ellen White Burns.

I rechecked the Mt. Hope listings and don't you know Ellen Bush is buried in the same corner of the same range and lot as my Burns family so I believe we did find the right Ellen Bush.

1830 Census, Roswell Bush, Town of Brighton, Village of Rochester, 4th Ward, 1 M <5, 1 M of 30<40, 1 F of 30<40. I believe this is his 1st wife Ann Canfield.

Roswell and Ellen marry 05 SEP 1842, Rochester. I don't know that they had any children but my gggm Ellen b 1836 and her brother George b 1834 are listed with them in the 1850 census. Roswell died 09 DEC 1873.

Jan 1878 pension application for which Ellen Bush applied and was granted has her living with my Burns family on North Street. I may have to see if I can locate her Inmate Registration Certificate.

Thanks again and what a great resource we have in the Mt. Hope site!
