Michael, William & John Rush Headstones
Born Co. Tyrone, Died & Buried NSW, Australia

Submitted by Stephen Gard

The Rush brothers were the sons of William Rush and Margaret (or Marjorie) McGrath, of Dooish Townland, (or Omagh), Co. Tyrone. There were supposedly ten brothers, but I have been able to trace only these three - Michael, William and John. A fourth brother, Thomas Rush, may also have emigrated to Australia and joined his brothers. He appears to have been an invalid, perhaps mentally sub-normal. I know little about him. He is not the Thomas Rush mentioned on Michael’s tombstone. He seems to have lived with a son of John Rush.
