Re: Lost Bussey's

THe well documented line of Bussey's descending from George seems to be fairly easy to access, however the connection between my branch of the family and the notable line is hard to connect. It seems many of my Bussey's have been "lost" as well. My grandfather Robert Bussey, was born in Modoc, SC. It places him at the right place to come from this flourishing line. His brother Jennings Bussey even refered to Rev. Charles Bussey as "Uncle Charlie". That gives me an oral history connection. However, I can find no way to connect Robert and Jennings father to the earlier Bussey's. Robert and Jennings were born to Vest Bussey and Lillian Fox. Lillian was proprietor of the Fox Candy Co., which may help researchers notice her. However, unless "Vest" is a shortening or nickname, I can find no record of my great-grandfather. After conferring with a friend who does geneaological research, he believes that Vest may have been a shortening of the name Americus Vecious (sp?) Bussey. he is buried in the same area as the rest of my ancestors and I have found mention of him in records, but no specifics. Any help or ideas? Thanks so much.
