Dr, Rush was the father of 13 children a few died in infancy. Here's part of what Wikipedia has about the names of  his children. 

"On January 11, 1776, Rush married Julia Stockton (1759–1848), daughter of Richard Stockton, another signer of the Declaration of Independence, and his wife Annis Boudinot Stockton. They had 13 children, 9 of whom survived their first year: John, Ann Emily, Richard, Susannah (died as an infant), Elizabeth Graeme (died as an infant), Mary B, James, William (died as an infant), Benjamin (died as an infant)Richard, Julia, Samuel, and William. Richard later became a member of the cabinets of James Madison and James Monroe."

Thank you Frank,

II am trying to connect John Rush (Benjamin and Juli'a Rush's Son b. 1776)  to Fredrick McDaniel Rush (b.1843)  who was my Great Grand Father. He was born o f A John (b. 1813)  and Susanna (Brown) Rush in Kentucky i. I had an Aunt ( my Fathers Sister)  tell me when I was a child that I was a direct descendant of Dr. Benjamin Rush who as you know, signed the Declaration of Independence among other things  I am now 88 yrs. old. I would like definite proof before I pass on. I know my Fathers, Grand Fathers, and Great Grand Fathers history, but need to know about the John Rush' s connection.  Thank You.

have you ever heard of a laura a rush in your family, she was born in 1812-13. thru some of my research, i found a laura rush married to a thomas pollock in 1830  in bowling green, ky. . just asking because you mentioned ky. in some censuses it says she was born in vt,ny and massachusetts. she is quite a myster y, ive been doing this for almost 20 years andthe only place i s on the censuses. the town in mass. is natick.  thomas and laura pollock live also in new milford ct.(small town of bridgewater}.  .  if you have any info on her can you write me back..tku
