My DeBusk Ancestors

I am going to use this first blog to list my direct ancestors on my DeBusk family tree. Then I will try to do a short biography in other blogs on the people I have mentioned. So we will start with my DeBusk relatives. I have excluded any information of living individuals unless they have given their permission.

My dad: Living DeBusk

Son of: Kenneth Elvin DeBusk &
Living Branham

Kenneth is the son of: Charles Martin DeBusk &
Bessie Virginia Murphy

Charles is the son of: Ezra Newton Sheffield DeBusk &
Sarah Ann Lucinda Butcher
(Ezra married 2nd Priscilla Jane Richardson)

Ezra is the son of: John Gross DeBusk &
Rachel Pickle

John is the son of: Elijah DeBusk Jr. &
Margaret "Peggy" Gross

Elijah Jr. is the son of: Elijah DeBusk Sr. &
Katherine "Caty" Rouse

Family Stories say that Elijah Sr. was the son of: Jacob DeBusk &
Unknown
(but this has been unproven)

Jacob DeBusk is the son of: Antonie DeBusk/DeBose/DuBose/DuBosc
& Unknown

Antonie is the son of: Issac DuBose/DuBosc &
Suzanne Couillandeau

This traces the family to them arriving in America from France. I will continue with the French line next week.
