Correction: Washington Artifacts-Auction story

In a May 21 story about the sale of items linked to George Washington, The Associated Press, relying on information provided by the auction house, made two errors in reporting that the sellers of certain items descended from a brother of Washington's named Bushrod. Washington had a nephew, not a brother, named Bushrod, and the sellers are descendants of Bushrod Washington's brother, Corbin Washington.
