Hey lee, Well I guess that means you and Karie are indeed cousins to me. That explains it. Your becky is Rebecca. But now we have a mystery to solve and who are these sisters exactly. Some of the names You gave I never heard of. The sisters I know of are: Eva lusk smith mattie lusk hogarth cora lusk mccarver ella lusk weber daisy lusk taylor
and my great grandma Sarah lusk Main and yep husband was Arthur. This is what my grandma wrote before she died. exactly. She didn't write their middle names so I had not known them. It is possible if their are more sisters they had already passed away when she wrote these down. I have however found Delphia In the censes finally.She was hard to find because she was not Mcclain but was MCCLANE. I believe we have all had the wrong spelling or perhaps the censes people had it wrong. Censes 1870: America Mcclane30yearsJefferson ,Illinios Charles D mcclane6" Delphia A McClane11" George W. Mcclane80" Joel R. Mcclane3" Milas E Mcclane1" Nancy J. Mcclane8" William G. Mcclane10" Anna C Mcclane9" David L Mcclane7"
I know this information is something you have to pass along to Karie. I believe that America married an old Fart Ha!HA! And being she was from Illinois I am surethat it was there she met Jonathan R. This makes Her two years younger and in the right age. I can tell you and Karie that I believe they Delphia and Jonathan had their girls in Arkansas ,my grandma wrote down West Fork Ark.West fork is now no longer, it no longer exist. She had also written that Jonathan R and Delphia had come from Illinois athough she did not know wether or not they were born there. I found several Jonthan R. One in Buncombe N.C. one in Conneticut, and one in Cherokee County Texas.I ruled these out because Following them through the censes They never left their home states or counties.And since they had their girls in Arkansas this I believe is where they are probably buried.SEE Ya Later Cousin
