My maternal great grandmother was named Tempie Lusk. She livedaround the Spruce Pine,N.C. area. As far as I know she never married and my grandmother,Pearl Lusk, was raised by her. The family does not know if she was in fact my grandmother's mother.At any rate we always knew her as our great grandmother.I am not sure when she was born ,but place it somewhere in the late 1800's.
