Per The History of Ulster County by Sylvester (Olive , page 301)

In 1781 the Indians and Tories attacked the house of Frederick Bush.It is supposed they designed to carry into captivity the father, whowas known to be a staunch patriot. Failing to find him, they destroyeda batch of bread, seized the children , placed the boys in one groupand the girls in the other, and demanded of the mother which she wouldspare. The weeping mother declined to make a choice, and they decidedfor themselves, carrying off the boys - Stephen, Isaac and Cornelis.The la tter was but a mere child, and the brothers had to help him bycarrying him on their backs. They were carried to Canada, but wereransomed and returned in safety, lived to a good old age, leavingnumerous descendents.

A book on early Ulster County provides this insight: Thomas Bushsettled in 1755 upon a tract of land above a place that would be knownas Winchell's Falls. He lived there during the Revolutionary War,supporting the Patriot cause. Toward the en d of the war, his son -Frederick - and his wife and twelve children were living on the BushHomestead. For some time this frontier was constantly patrolled. Evenwith a Fort at Shokan, they could not prevent Tories and Indians fromwreaking havo c on the farmers. They came down the the cloves andpasses of the Catskill Mountains, ran off the cattle and destroyed thecrops.

One morning in 1781, Mr. Bush and his son, Thomas, left the house tohunt a bee tree. Suddenly a band of Indians appeared and surronded thehouse. They expected to find Mr. Bush, against whom his Tory neighborsheld a bitter animosity. Mr. Bush , from a distance, had seen theIndians go to his home but he was helpless to go to the assistance ofhis family. Not finding Mr. Bush, they prowled around the kitchendemanding food from Mrs. Bush and brandishing their tomahawks. Mrs.Bush wa s a large and determined woman but her efforts to protect herchildren were to no avail.

They placed the boys on one side and the girls on the other and askedthe mother which they should take. Then, spying small Cornelius in hiscradle, one of the Indians raised his tomahawk, but the child smiledand the Indian said, 'no can kill bab y'. He picked him up and seizingIsaac and Stephen, they hastened away.

Mr. Bush watching from hiding place saw, to his horror, they weretaking three of the boys with them. They traveled over the High PointWagon Road and the Sullivan County History tells us how they traveledthrough that County toward Fort Niagara . Small Cornelius was carriednearly all the way by his brothers.

The frightened Bush family hid in the brush that night, along theEsopus Creek, and in the morning prganized a rescue party, butalltraces were lost. The boys were adopted among the tribes andseperated. They did not see each other for some years.

Eventually the older boys were located through some Indian traders/Someone hering of Cornelius brought him home. He had forgotten hisfamily, his name and language. He had been painted so many times thathe looked like an Indian boy. Isaac wen t to Buffalo to live, butCornelius, whose nickname was Tease, and Stephen remained in Olive. He married an unknown person at Marbletown, Ulster, NY. He died at Ulster County, NY. He was born circa 29 May 1743 at Kingston, Ulster, NY. He was baptized on 29 May 1743 at Kingston, Ulster, NY Reformed Dutch Church. He married Tanneke (Janneke) Krom, daughter of Jan (John) Krom and Rebecca Bogart, before 1771 at Ulster County, NY.
