Ancestors born and raised in Brush Creek Township. My Irish Emigrant ancestor - John Huston - purchased 2 land patents there in 1833. He is buried in the Chestnut Grove Cemetery, Brush Creek Township,  next to his 3-year-old son, Oliver.  James Huston is his son (b: 1833 Jefferson County). Elizabeth Russell was born there in 1831 to Arthur & Sarah Russell.
