Teri, Your Joseph LUSK was a younger brother of my ancestor John Huston LUSK. They were two of the children of Samuel LUSK and Elizabeth WHITESIDES, who moved from Rutherford Co., NC to Amite County MS area around 1800. Samuel was a Rev. War vet. and his widow applied for a pension, so there is quite a bit of information available on microfilm about him. I have a good bit of information about the descendents of Samuel and Elizabeth to Jasper's generation. Write to me privately if you want more information.
