Bushrod Island

I think that Bushrod Washington is the only Supreme Court Justice with an island named after him. Bushrod Island is part of the Liberian capital of Monrovia. (See below). Bushrod was the President of the American Colonization Society from 1816 until 1829 and advocated freeing slaves and deporting them to Liberia, though his personal record on that score was poor.
