He married Mary Augusta "Mame" Hayward in Philadelphia, PA, September 14, 1887. Mary was born in Woburn, MA June 5, 1862. Mary was the daughter of Arza Harris Hayward and Ann Janette Flagg. Mary died September 29, 1926 in Washington, DC, at 64 years of age. Notes from Jeanette Scott shows Mame's address as 5028 Knox Road, Germantown, PA (Philadelphia). In Mame's diary in 1948, she wrote of "letter from Doris telling of Hayward's engagement." Rush came to Philadelphia, PA to live with his uncle, F. Wesley Porter and his wife, Ella, in a section of the city called Germantown. He first took a job at a paint shop and was later employed by John Butler at his drug store on the northwest corner of Manheim Street and Germantown Avenue. He attended Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (Class of 1880-81). After a two-year wait to attain the required age, he obtained his degree, Ph.G. In 1886, he opened his own drugstore at 16th and Race Streets.

In December of 1895, due to tuberculosis, he moved the family near his sister, Jennie Whittington, in Monrovia, California. In 1898, he was a patient at the San Gabriel Sanitarium for Pulmonary Diseases. A twenty-two page, hand-written letter from Jane Frances Hayward, "Aunt Fannie," tells much of the life and times of the Whittington and Marshall families while Rush and his family were in California (written to C. Hayward Marshall in 1948) Two months before his death, Rush wrote a letter on San Gabriel Sanitarium stationery and mailed in a company envelope of the The Marshall Field Company in North Ontario, CA. In this letter, Rush wrote: "I wish I'd never met a Field. What involvement, if any, did Rush have with the Marshall Field Company?

After his death, Mame moved the young family back to Philadelphia.
