Brenda: I'm no help with Samuel Lusk but your mention of his son "BURTON L. LUSK" caught my attention. Any knowledge of Burton's descendants? brothers? marriages? Sketchy family history says my grandfather had 2 unusual names: EVANS BURTON LUSK (see forum message 02/99). I'm missing some critical pieces to this family puzzle, so I'm just kinda fishing for leads. I'd appreciate any help you might be able to offer!
