A. V. Poush: By T. M. Dunshee

This short biography is the fifteenth in a series of sketches and articles written or edited by Thomas M. Dunshee between 1903, when he began collecting the material, and 1910, when he finished entering the sketches in a small blue "tablet" notebook now in the Lucas County Historical Society collection. The subjects all were fellow pioneers in the Newbern neighborhood of English Township, Lucas County. Albert V. Poush and his wife, Mary, are buried in the Chariton Cemetery.

July 8, 1905

A.V. Poush, son of Valentine Poush, of German descent, born Oct. 14, 1853, in Franklin Co., Indiana. At the age of two years, moved with his parents to Marion County, Iowa, where he lived until he reached his majority, when he was married to Mary C. Davis.

Two years laer, he moved to Warren County, Iowa, where he followed the occupation of farmer for seventeen years. In 1895, he moved to English Township, where he bought a farm one mile east of the Presbyterian church, which he still owns.

Four children were born to Mr. Poush, two of which died in infancy. Of those living, Albert Edward was born March 26th, 1881, and at this time is residing on his father's farm in the township. Maude Mae was born Oct. 12, 1883, and resides with her husband on the farm in English Township.
