Family Legend has James, Jr.'s wife as Mary Bush. On page 104 of Foley's book, she refers to a Rebecca Bushup whose correct name should be Rebecca Bishop. There may be a similar mix-up with regard to Mary Bishop. However, there is a Bush family that is well represented in Foley's book. But, there is no doubt that James, Jr.'s wife was Mary Bishop.
