This could be John Bush, living with a cousin, John T Garnett, at 1526 Mount Street, Baltimore,  in 1920. It is the same street he lived on with Priscilla in the 1923 City Directory. That might not prove much, since it was probably a black neighborhood, but who knows. Likewise, there were Dorsey families on the street, but that might be a common name in the area.

Note no (Priscilla) listed with John in 1921, so they got together soon afterward. The city directories sometimes run 6 months to a year behind the actual state of affairs, probably because of time needed to gather info and publish.

1917 Baltimore City Directory
John T Garnett* laborer, householder at 1716 N Mount
no good match for John Bush

1918 Baltimore City Directory
no John T Garnett
no good match for John Bush

no 1919 Directory at the site I was on

1920 Baltimore City Directory
John T Garnett* laborer 1526 Mount St (image 443)
no good match for John Bush, he could the be laborer at 213 Jasper or 855 Ostend. I didn't look to see where those streets were in relation to North Mount.

1921 Baltimore City Directory
John T Garnett* laborer 1526 Mount St (image 443)
John Bush* driver, householder 1421 Mount

-------
1920 Census, Baltimore
at 1526 Mount Street

John T Garnett, 55, black, born in Virginia, parents also, fireman, steamboat
Annie Garnett, 29, black, born in Maryland, parents also, housework, out
John Bush, 25, cousin, black, born in Virginia, parents also, teamster, coal wagon
George Roebuck, 29, black, widowed, boarder, born in Georgia, parents also, laborer, railroad
Freeman Roebuck, 23, black, single, boarder, born in Virginia, parents also, laborer, railroad

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6Q9-GYF

If that is him, it looks like he arrived in Baltimore about 1920 and married Priscilla soon after arriving. Their 1st son, John was born in 1921 or 1922, as we have found already.

Edited, see below.
To help determine if that is him, you need to trace back John T Garnett to his Virginia home and look for a John Bush in the area.

Working John T Garnett forward might also help. His obituary, if printed, might name family which could help find his home in Virginia.

edit to add:
Finding the Roebucks might help also, one of them was born in VA, but it is odd that the other one was not. Are they related?

Could you post a link to the 1940 information, if you have it? If not, who was still in the household, did the ages match the 1930 census, etc. They must have been at or near the same location


1940 census Ward 16, Baltimore City, Baltimore City, Baltimore City, Maryland. (under Burk on ancestry)

Still on Mount Street
