Thanks for contacting me, Winston.I am at a standstill with John.I will tell you what I have and maybe we can find a connection.John Lusk, b. 12/27/1786; d. 4/15/1857 Franklin township, Des Moines County, Iowa.Me married Catherine______, possibly Johnston.I have found a marriage record for a John Lusk and Catherine Johnston in Indiana, but I can't say for sure.They came to Des Moines County, Iowa in 1843.They had two sons, William B.E., b. about 1840 in Indiana and Hamilton Marion, b. 7/30/1840 in Indiana.When they got to Iowa, two more children were born, Albert S. b. 1844 and Sarah E.
