OUR RUSH FAMILY IN THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR by John Bowman, the Great Grandson of Salathiel Benjamin Rush Sgt. “F” Co. 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry
The four sons of Peter Rush and Elizabeth Pew-RUSH of Armstrongs Mills, Washington Township, Belmont County Ohio, who enlisted and fought in Union Regiments in the American Civil War.

With a fever of Civil War patriotism sweeping Ohio, son Morgan would be the first to leave. In June of 1861, he joined the Second (West) Virginia Infantry at Wheeling, Virginia and by early October, her oldest son; Salathiel Benjamin had decided he would enlist as soon as the harvest had been saved. Salathiel was mustered into service in the 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry November 24th, 1861. Brother John C. had made up his mind that upon reaching the age of 16 he would enlist and August 22, 1862 he was mustered into service in the 52nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry. 17 year old, Samuel C., not quite as anxious, enlisted in the 176th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in September of 1864. Brother-in law, Mahlon C. Pugh, husband of Ivey Jane Rush (the four brother’s sister) served in Salathiel’s “F” Co., 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry.
One of John Bowman’s Bowman Family members was a Civil War Veteran, Great Grand Uncle William S. McHugh Co. K, 12th Regiment West Virginia Volunteer Infantry.
