    BUSH FAMILY REUNION, Sunday, September 4, 2005, 11:00AM til 4:00PM, at the Texas State Bank on Hwy 59 in Timpson, Texas.  This family has been holding an annual reunion almost every year since about 1940.  For the past 10 or 15 years, we have been meeting at the bank every year.  If you are a descendant of George Hillery Bush and Margaret Ella Davis Bush, please try to attend.  George Bush came to Texas from Alabama as a teenager.  George married Ella Davis in 1878 and they raised 10 children in the Lake Murvaul Community.  Many of their descendants still live in Panola County, many now in Shelby and Nacogdoches Counties and across the US.  Don't forget to bring a covered dish. For information email Sandra Brownlow
