      Mrs. Bushnell of Birmingham Alabama descends from Robert (2nd son of Robert in PWC) who migrated to KY in the 1780s. He and brother Thomas in Loudoun refused to submit an estate listing for their father (for years!) even after being sued by sibs Francis, Judith, and Jacob. It was eventually settled, money exchanged, etc.
