Urbane was a slave holder and appears on the 1850 slave schedule. He owned a 30 year old female, 12 year old male, 8 year old female and 10 month old female.
Also in 1850 Urbane Bush is listed on the Agricultural Schedule. No acreage is mentioned, but it does show that they owned a horse, a milking cow, four work oxen, 2 other cattle and 10 hogs. His livestock was valued at $165. Their farm produced twenty bushels of iris h potatoes and twenty bushels of sweet potatoes as well as 100 pounds of butter.

Nancy Ann died on October 29th, 1872. She is probably buried near her husband on the farm. Nancy's date of death is taken from a claim that her son Robert filed in her name when acting as her administrator. Robert applied to the Southern Claims Comission for reimbursement of $238.75 for goods taken from Nancy's household by Union Soldiers during the Civil War. Robert claimed that one horse valued at $200, a shotgun worth $20 and 75 pounds of bacon valued at 25 cents per pound had been seized by US Cavalry troops under the command of General Kirpatrick in June or July 1863. The claim was refused.
