When two years old, he moved with his parents to Fayette County, Ill., where he grew to manhood. On October 1, 1873, he was united in marriage to Miss Priscilla Isodora Mills(Miles). They came to Dallas county, Mo., in the fall of 1882. His wife died in September, 1886. To this union seven children were born. The youngest died in infancy. The six surviving children are: F. Rush, Lawndale, Ozark county, Mo.; Mary A. Bishop, Red Rock, Okla.; Ruth A. Warner, Long Lane Mo.; Susan E. Franklin, Skiatook, Okla.; Catharine A. Franklin, Fairland, Okla.; and Priscilla I. Smith, Long Lane, Mo. He is also survived by 39 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, and one sister, Anna C. Harper, Ft. Scott, Kans. His son, M. F. Rush, two of his daughters, Mrs. Warner and Mrs. Smith, and his sister, Mrs. Anna C. Harper, were at his bedside when death came. All that loving hands could do, was done. He was bed fast about three weeks with diabetes. He was converted in his young manhood and united with the Church of Christ. He was ordained to the ministry. He spent much of his time in Bible study, for more than 40 years. He has gone among the people of the Ozarks preaching the gospel of Christ. In hundreds of homes, there are persons he baptised, or united in marriage, or preached the funeral sermon of some departed one. Some years after the death of his first wife, he was married to Mrs. Irene Patterson, who died in November, 1906. For the past few years he has made his home in Howell and Ozark counties, Mo.
To the bereaved ones there is a text of scripture found in Daniel 12:3, which reads, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars forever and ever." Bro. Rush made it his life work to show sinners the way of life, and turn them to righteousness, and he has gone home to heaven and we feel sure the promise of Daniel will be his, and it should be a comfort to his children, to know his reward will be forever. His work is now finished. He has gone home to receive his reward, which will never end. Dear children be faithfu to God, and some day you will go and meet your father to part no more. The funeral sermon was delivered by Bro. L. Homer King.
