      Ancestors of American Presidents (citation details below) has him dying in Concord, but his tombstone (viewable on his Find a Grave page, citation details below) says he died in Cambridge. So does a newspaper obituary shown on the same Find a Grave page; unfortunately, no information is given as to what newspaper the obituary came from.

      Harriet Eleanor Fay (1829-1924) = James Smith Bush (1825-1889)
      Samuel Prescott Bush (1883-1894) = Flora Sheldon (1872-1920)
      Sen. Prescott Sheldon Bush (1895-1972) = Dorothy Wear Walker (1901-1992)
