You're barking up the wrong tree with this couple. Virgil Lee LUSHER b. 1-29-1877 Lincoln Co WV; d 7-14-1955 Wayne Co WV; s/o Lewis Washington LUSHER His wife Josephine b 12-31-1881; d 2-5-1942 Wayne Co; she is the d/o H B FERGUSON/Mandy ADKINS
Your Josephine is still at home 1895 Doniphan Co KS. No Jos* b WV listed 1900 Doniphan, so either married, or deceased. The only person with Eliz. 1900 is dau Victoria. Eliz* is also on the 1920 census for Doniphan Co, and d there 1-21-1928, but..... I found this and everything fits.... 1910 Custer Co OK LUSHER, Elizabeth 70 VA VA VA; widow; 8ch/7surv LUSHER, Tracy 6 MO MO MO; gdau This gdau is with her 1920, but her name is very strange..."Springshead"!!. Considering her age/bplace could she be the d/o of your missing Tilden? If only 1 ch is dec'd, then maybe Josie is still living.
I didn't find Eliz. on 1905/1915 KS State Census....this could be why.
