Biographical Sketch of Zina Bushnell

Zina Bushnell, the first member of this family of whom we have definite information, was an early settler in Lakeport, Madison county, New York. The surname is prominent in the annals of several New England places, including Saybrook and Norwich, Connecticut. There was also another Bushnell in Lakeport, very early in the last century. Zina Bushnell, as early as 1815, built the first brick house in the northern part of the town of Sullivan, making the brick on his own farm. The name of his wife is unknown. Among his children was Almanza, referred to below.
