The Bush family and Columbus, Ohio

Most of us around Columbus, OH, know about the Bush connection--George H.W. Bush's grandfather Samuel Prescott Bush, was president of Buckeye Steel and built his mansion in Marble Cliff which is now part of Prescott Place luxury condominiums. We admire it during Lent when we go the the fish fry at Our Lady of Victory.  His son Prescott (the senator and father of HW) lived here too and attended Douglas School before going east to a private school. I had forgotten that Barbara Bush's grandfather James E. Robinson was an Ohio Supreme Court justice and lived in Columbus and got his law degree from Ohio State. Wealth and influence married wealth and influence, much like today.
