Ohio County, WV Rush Notes

Was the Jacob and Jeremiah Rush in 1810 Ohio County, Virginia (became West Virginia in 1863) the same Jacob and Jeremiah in 1820 Monroe County, Ohio? In 1820, there are no Rush families in Ohio County or found in the state of Virginia, which indicates they moved on. In the 1830s, there were entries in the court records for Conrad and Daniel Rush.
 
Early land records in Ohio County show David Rush involved in two transactions in 1834 when he purchased land from Isaac Briggs and Samuel Dunlap. The Dunlap transaction was on Stulls Run.
