About this template

You all know about the Bushes. They’re a prominent family in the American elite and, of course, politics. This family has produced several politicians and businessmen. Notably, the Bush family has had two Presidents from its lineage.

This EdrawMax template provides key persons in the Bush family, from Samuel Prescott Bush to the latest generation of adults. Since the Bush family is an important part of American history, you’ll surely love a jumpstart with your research with this template.

The template starts with Samuel Prescott Bush, who kickstarted it all. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, he made his mark in the railroad industry, laying the groundwork for the family’s future. His son, Prescott Sheldon Bush, followed suit in a different arena: politics.

Prescott became a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, setting the stage for the family’s political legacy. George H.W. Bush, Prescott’s son, took the family name to new heights, becoming the 41st President of the United States. He brought his diplomatic skills to the world stage, leaving a lasting impact on global affairs.

Then came George W. Bush, his son, who led the nation through tough times as the 43rd President. His response to 9/11 defined his presidency. You can see their lineage in the timeline, as well as George H.W. Bush’s wife, Barbara Bush.

However, the Bush family isn’t just about presidents. Jeb Bush, George H.W. Bush’s son, made waves as the Governor of Florida and even ran for president in 2016. Neil Bush, another son, made his mark in business and charity work, positively impacting society.

Marvin Bush, yet another son, has been a big player in the business world. And let’s not forget Dorothy Bush Koch, who’s made a name for herself through philanthropy and writing. The next generation of Bushes is carrying the torch forward. George P. Bush, Jeb’s son, is making a name for himself as the Texas Land Commissioner.

Then there are Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Bush Hager, George W. Bush’s twin daughters, who are making waves in social causes and the media. The Bush family’s roots run deep, stretching back to England and Germany. But it’s their commitment to public service that stands out.

You can deepen your research on the other family members by adding information to this template. After all, the Bushes held key roles in government for generations, shaping American history along the way. Studying this family is a good start if you want to brush up on American politics and history.

While many other family members are in this template, adding their children to the list might be good. After all, the family tree only lists up until the latest set of adults in the family. The grandchildren of George H.W. Bush now have families of their own, after all.
