"They lived in MiddleTennessee until 1819, when they came to the western portion of the state. The father was one of the hardy pioneer woodmen and for forty years was a farmer. He was in the War of 1812, and Rushing Creek in Benton County derived its name from him and Willis, Dennis and Phillip Rushig, they having built the first cabins in West Tennessee, on that stream."
