I'm trying to find something (anything) on my ancestor who was either Lester or Luster. The family lived in Jefferson County, TN in the 1850 census and were listed as LUSTER but that could have been an error. They were:
360A 36 437 778 Luster Moses 62 M Shoe Maker VA 360A 37 437 778 Luster Sally 45 F VA 360A 38 437 778 Luster Elizabeth 16 F NC 360A 39 437 778 Luster James 14 M NC 360A 40 437 778 Luster Salla 12 F NC 360A 41 437 778 Luster Morgan 10 M NC 360A 42 437 778 Luster Betsy 8 F NC 360B 1 437 448 Luster Daniel 5 M TN CENSUS YEAR:1850 STATE:TN COUNTY: Jefferson DISTRICT:
Elizabeth was my grgrgrandmother. She married John C. North in Jefferson County IN 1851 and they lived there all their lives. She listed their names in her family bible as LESTER but I've not seen the original writing (only a transcription) and the error could have been made by whoever transcribed it.
Any info would be greatly appreciated! Barb Moore Dallas, TX
