William Tandy (W.T.) Bush and his family went to Salado, Texas after the Civil War. He preached for the Salado Church of Christ, and held gospel meetings in the area. In a letter to the editor of the Gospel Advocate September 29, 1871 he wrote: "We have just returned from a camp meeting . . . continued for ten days . . . number of additions seventy-eight . . . fifty-one of the above accessions to the cause went into organization, choosing three of their seniors to watch over them."
Another claim to fame is that W.T. Bush was the grandfather of Federal Judge Paine Bush of Dallas, Texas.
-Excerpt from History Of Church of Christ, Salado, Texas, by MaryBelle Brown. Note: I had the opportunity to speak with Mrs. Brown on the telephone concerning W.T. Bush. She was very helpful in finding the grave in the cemetery. She is not only a church historian, but is the official historian of the town of Salado.
