He was the son of Dr. Wynans Bush (1799–1889) and Julia Ann Loomis Bush (1805–1898). He was educated at academies in Franklin and Cortland. He Graduated from Bellevue Medical College and the medical school of Buffalo University. Afterwards he settled in Horseheads and practiced medicine there.

He enlisted as a private in the 12th Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry, and fought the First Battle of Bull Run, the Battle of Yorktown, the Seven Days' Battles, the Battle of Fredericksburg, and the Battle of Antietam. Then he re-enlisted in the 185th Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry, and became a captain, and later a major. He was captured during the Battle of Hatcher's Run by the Confederate Army, and subsequently exchanged.

On September 1, 1870, he married Laretta Ludlow (1847–1925).

He entered politics as a Democrat, and was School Commissioner of Chemung County from 1875 to 1878, Excise Commissioner for the Town of Horseheads from 1878 to 1882, and Coroner of Chemung County in 1883.

He was a member of the New York State Assembly (Chemung Co.) in 1886, 1887, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1916 and 1917; and was Speaker in 1892, and Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means in 1913.

In 1920, he was President of the Board of Trustees of the Soldiers and Sailors' Home at Bath, New York, and testified at a hearing before Lt. Gov. Harry C. Walker, denying charges of mismanagement and cruelty.

He died on January 8, 1923, at the Amot Ogdon Hospital in Elmira, of pneumonia; and was buried at the Maple Grove Cemetery in Horseheads.
