First of all I would like to thank Dave for taking me to meet one of our cousins that was raised in the midwest. Thanks to online genealogy sites and the forums that let us post our family lines this has brought us together. Boy was she in for a surprise upon our first conversation as she thought her family was small and that she could have her reunion in a minivan. I told her that being a Rush and her grandfather being raised in the Millinocket area with ties to the Rush in Benedicta and Sherman that would never happen.
Jade Rush Passmore is the granddaughter of James Arnold Rush Jr. and Helen Kelly. Great Granddaughter of James Arnold Rush Sr. and Mary Louise Chilsholm.
It was a pleasure meeting her and her daughter Katie. Jade is planning on attending the reunion in Benedicta in 2010. She currently resides in Indiana.
Dave and I had a wonderful visit with her and I can't wait to see her again.
Thanks Jade and Katie for the lovely welcome we recieved.
