Hi, I would like to hear from anyone who might help me.I have been trying to help someone with their genealogy and it has led me to the southern part of West Virginia.Beginning with and working back: Vashti Green md Cecil "James" Thurston
Vashti's parents were: Van (found to be William Van A. Green) and Ella (Elvira) Lusk.Van and Ella were residing with Ella's parents, Crockett H. and Clarissa Lusk in Baileysville District, Wyoming County, WV on the 1910 census.
The death certificate for Clarissa (Clara) Lusk, widow, showed her parents as Andrew and Susan (Trent) Hatfield.Clarissa (Clara) died in Wyoming County and was buried at Cub Creek.I assume Crockett is buried there, too?
Crockett's father was one of the Reece T. Lusks.He was residing with Crockett's family in Wyoming County at the time of the 1880 census for Huffs Creek, Wyoming County, WV, and was shown as 66.Children of Crockett and Clarissa on that census were: Lee, 13; Rebecca, 11; Winifrede, 9; Elvira (Ella), 4; Estill, 4; and Bertha, 3.The 1900 census showed another child, Otis.
Clarissa and Crockett wee married on 2-4-1866.He was born in Wyoming County and she was born in Logan County.His parents were Reece & Elizabeth Lusk; her parents were Andrew and Susan/Susanna Hatfield.
I just got started on this, so haven't had a chance to follow up with other records.I did see that there was an Anderson Hatifield, a minister, who presided over many marriages in the southern part of the state.My questions, obviously, are:
1.Was Andrew Hatfield the same as Anderson Hatfield?2.Whether or not they were one and the same, were they related to Devil Anse or others of his clan?
Anything anyone can share with me would be appreciated.Thanks.
