Thanks so much for your reply. Samuel Lusk is also my great-great-great grandfather. Samuel Lusk Suzanne Lusk (married Wilburn Clark) Jasper Clark (married Litha Butler) Andy David Clark(married Martha Berry) Mary Clark Pam Archer
I haven't found much information on Samuel Lusk.It's a real problem with my mother being the youngest in her family.Her two older sisters just haven't been much help.They want to just tell stories about the bad times when they were growing up or refer me to a book that someone else wrote about our family. And the book isn't much help.
My mom is convinced that Suzanne Lusk's family came here from Scotland and that the older ones spoke with a very strong Scottish accent.She also says that (James) Wilburn Clark's family came from England.
On the internet at Ancestry.com for Clark's I found that Suzanne Lusk and her husband were both born in Valle Crucis, Watauga Cty, NC. If so, both sets of their parents may be buried there.Do you have any idea of where they might be buried?
Did you know that in the late summer each year they have a decoration, preaching, singing, and pot luck dinner at the cemetery in Clark Town where Suzanne Lusk Clark is buried? Do you ever come to that?
Thanks again.If we keep looking maybe we'll find out more.
