In Reply to: Looking for Pusey Horn by Dave Soderlund of 209

Dave,

I stumbled into this genealogy forum while doing some research on the Pusey family myself recently. I have a picture of the Pusey horn in its case at the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as an original clipping of the Pusey horn as reported in Ripley's "Believe It or Not" many years ago (1941 I believe). If you are still looking, please let me know and I'll dig them up and send you an electronic version of each.

If there are other Puseys out there that are descendants of Joshua Pusey (the bookmatch inventor)27 Mar 1842 Auburn/Yorklyn Delaware -- 8 May 1906, please drop me a line. I have a fair amount of family information about him, his son Fred Taylor Pusey 3 Jun 1872 --6 Sep 1936.

Working in the other direction, I believe I'm working with
Jacob Pusey II
Jacob Pusey and
William Pusey

Somewhere back there is Caleb Pusey (but I assume everyone claims him)

In addition to some of what I mentioned above, I have a quite respectable history of Joshua Pusey (bookmatches), pictures of his home at Maple Linden, and a sweet little book written by Emalea Pusey Warner, given to my father (John) Stuart Ogilvie Pusey in 1939. It's titled "Childhood Memories of the Civil War Years, 1861-1865."

Finally -- and then I'll sign off -- I've been holding on to a regimental History of the Pennsylvania Bucktails (Joshua Pusey's Civil War Regiment) for quite some time.

If anyone cares to see or share any of this information, please let me know.

Yours,

Ed Pusey
