Brush, Colorado was named for Jared L. Brush. Brush came west to mine gold west of Denver in 1859, making him a "Fifty-Niner". Along with his brothers, William and John, he homesteaded in northeast Colorado on the Big Thompson River north of present day Johnstown. Brush served as Weld County commissioner and sheriff, was elected to the state legislature, and served as Lieutenant Governor twice. The town was named for him in 1882
