- A Message from Supervisor LaFountain: National Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush

Today is a National Day of Mourning for our 41st president, George H.W. Bush. As our former president is laid to rest today, citizens throughout the United States honor his service and memory. In our town of Penfield, we also remember and honor the Bush family’s humble Penfield roots. President Bush’s third great-grandparents, Timothy and Lydia Bush, were early Penfield residents. Timothy (1766-1850) worked as a blacksmith in Penfield; he is buried in Oakwood Cemetery alongside Lydia and daughter Lovina. President Bush acknowledged his Penfield lineage in a 1988 letter to former Rep. Frank Horton: “Now I can claim Monroe County as yet another home base.” We are indeed honored to count the Bush family among Penfield’s first families. The Town of Penfield thanks President George H. W. Bush for his lifetime of service to our nation, and we offer our condolences to the entire Bush family.
