Rush Update

Brennan, Lawler, Robinson, Duffy, Rogan, Perry, McDonald, Cummings, McAvoy, McNally, Qualey, Casey, Gantnier Families. I need information from all those families with ties to Benedicta, ME. All those surnames tie back into John D. Rush and Sarah Smith. If you don't know all of your family information that is ok. Please send the information that you do know and I will work with what I do know and I will recover the rest.

Thank you for your assistance.

I am compiling the book of the Rush Family for the reunion in 2010.
