*Richard Bushnell, the model, webmaster and political commentator is a tracable decendant of David Bushnell

should have more details for people to read and for students to use when doing projects.

Age[edit]

"Family member"[edit]

The end of this sentence is awkward and vague:

"The Turtle eventually sank when it was trying to retreat from British observation, yet a Bushnell family member as sole commander, bailed out and survived."

Hopefully someone can identify the "Bushnell family member." And it seems meaningless to refer to the "sole commander" of a submersible that was intended to carry one person. 850 C (talk) 15:15, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
