"18. Phillip J. Rushing (Abraham, 4). Born, circa 1777, in Anson Co., NC. Census: 1820, in Anson Co., NC. Resided: 1830, in Humphreys Co., TN. Census: 1850, in Stewart Co., TN.
This is the Philip I. Rushing in 1800 in Anson County, the younger Philip Rushing in 1820, and Philep J. Rushing in 1820. In 1817, Peniah and Phillip J. Rushing sign as heirs in the selling of the estate of Thomas Gaddy, Sr., to Wm. Dismukes (Anson County Deed Book S, p. 297). The family proposed for Phillip in this database is hypothetical. It consists of the William Rushing with whom Phillip is living in 1850 in Stewart Co., TN, plus the Darling Rushing in the adajacent household. Then there is the J. J. Rushing in Benton Co. whose descendants think was descended from Phillip J. Rushing. Added to this is the John D. Rushing in Benton Co., TN, in 1850 whose ancestry has not been proven, who fits census data for the family of Phillip J. Rushing, and whose son Francis Marrion Rushing is buried in the same Williamson Co., IL, cemetery as J. J. Rushing's son James Darling Rushing. John D. and Jonathan J. appear on the same page of the Benton Co., TN, census in 1840. Added to this is the Roland Rushing in Benton Co., TN, in 1850, who may have a son named Darling Rushing. In the Dennis Rushing family Roland Rushing is stated to be a son of Phillip J. Rushing, but it is also claimed that Phillip J. Rushing was the Rev. War Veteran Phillip Rushing (Roland is too young). The Abraham Rushing is is here because of name and age fit only, and to place a loose family line somewhere that makes sense. This connection is far shakier than others. Personally, I prefer to think of the Darling Rushing, age 22, in 1850, as a grandson and the Darling Rushing, age 48, sheriff of Union Co., NC, as son of this Phillip Rushing. In the 1840 census Phillip appears on page 334. Census data. Anson Co., NC, 1810: 3101-1001. Anson Co., NC, 1820: 22131-2101. Stewart Co., TN, 1840: 100110001-0002.'
He married Peniah Gaddy. Died, before 1840. Children:
58 i. John D. Rushing. 59 ii. Roland Rushing. 60 iii. Abraham Rushing. 61 iv. William H. Rushing. 62 v. Jonathan J. Rushing. 63 vi. Darling Rushing."
