The marriage in Greene County, GA appears to be the only "known" commonality with my John Bush and Nancy King Bush. The following is a transcript of the obituary for Nancy that appeared in the "South Western Baptist Newspaper" on July 21, 1859:
"Departed this life on the 18th of April 1859 of pulmonary apoplexy at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J. A. Holland, Oxford, Calhoun County, AL, Mrs. Nancy Bush, relict of John Bush, age 69 years. The subject of this notice was the daughter of Edmund and Elizabeth King and was born in Halifax County, VA, July 14, 1789. She married in Green County, GA in 1804 and joined the Baptist Church at Grove Level, Franklin County, GA in 1833. She removed with her husband to AL in 1836 and resided there until her demise. Several children and a large circle of friends and acquaintances are left to mourn her loss."
John's will was signed September 6,1847 and was Probated Nov 15, 1847. It mentioned Wife Nancy. Children: Anderson C, James J, Daniel, Judith Holland, John, William C, Mary Elston, Albert P., Edmond T.
Albert P. was Albert Peyton Bush, my greatgreat grandfather. According to my great granduncle's papers (Thomas Greene Bush, son of Albert Peyton and brother to my great grandfather John Curtis), John and Nancy moved from Georgia to Alabama and "...lived on their farm near Oxford, until their death...". From this, I draw a conclusion that John also died in Benton County (Calhoun County since 1858).
As for the 1796 marriage to Eady Elizabeth Tyson, I doubt this is the link as the children were not mentioned in my John's will. According to Lynne Brown [a descendant of John Council Bush, Jr. (1781) and Eady Tyson via their son Moses Eason Bush,Sr. (1797-1847-GA and AL)-Julia Ann Calhoun (1794-1833)], the father John Council Bush,Sr. (1752-1805 Wilkes, GA) was married to Susanna Bryan (1763-1820).
This would link this family with an article I found in "The Early Records of Georgia", Volume I, Wilkes County abstracted and compiled by Grace Gillam Davidson, published in 1933 at Macon, GA, [Wilkes County] WILL BOOK "G G" --1806-1807
End of Page 71 - The Early Records of Georgia, Volume I, Wilkes County - Page 72:
"Page 101--BUSH, JOHN. Property to be kept together till the youngest child is 12. To dau. Elizabeth Bush, to two next daus. Polly Bryant Bush and Zilphah Bush, to dau. Jane Smith Bush, to dau. Susanna Franks Bush, furniture, silver, etc. Wife Susanna and son John Conrod Bush and Samuel Alexander, Excrs. Signed Mar. 10, 1805. Probated Aug. 5, 1805.

Page numbers beside a person's name refer to the page from the primary source, such as a will or deed book.]
Further, this would now tie in to an email by Coach Cal Campbell, I quote:
"My records show that William R Bush was the son of John Council Bush, Jr and the brother of Moses Eason Bush. Zachariah Bush was also a brother. John Council Bush, Sr had a son named William Bush. Maybe he was the one who was the son-in-law of William Williams. William Williams was the Lighthouse Keeper on St. George Island at Appalachacola. He built the first cotton gin in Barbour County. it states that there were 4 Williams brothers: Mark williams, William Williams, Charley williams, and Bartley C Williams. Bartley was the first postmaster of Williamston at the Ryan Cross Roads. William Williams married Arrency Bush, the daughter of Zachariah Bush and Polly Dennis. One mistake that the book mentions is that the Bush boys were from Charleston SC. That is of course not true and is documented from many other sources. Again, I refer your friends to the book by Elizabeth Willis DeHuff, "The Bush Family as descended from John and Mary Bryan Bush", that is in the NC State Library. It has the entire family published and documented with deeds from NC through GA into Barbour Co, AL. As to the Eliza Jones and Ariel Jones, I do not have any knowledge of them in Barbour County."

Though doubtful as it appears, anything is possible and real evidence may someday surface. Meanwhile, I hope this helps in your quest.
