THE THOMAS McCAY LUSTER'S of CLARKSDALE, MS

Updated May 1, 2005

About Our Family Research


This research by Thoma McCay Luster Sr. was started by members of my family many years ago. I have tried to continure it but have run into trouble proving my ggggrandfather parent due to the fact that census records of Virginia for 1790 and 1800 were odestroyed by fire the War of 1812. I think this ancestor, Miles Luster (b.1800 IN VA, SEE MISSISSIPPI CENSUS 1850) who married Mary Norell father was the Miles LUSTER (b. 17860 whose wife was Shelia Finch (b.abt. 1766 d. 1875) and his father was William Luster (b.1745 in VA) whoes wife was Mary. I think this Miles had a brother James (b.1804 d.1875) who rep. his mother Shelia's death and a brother Stokley Davis Luster. The LUSTER im my research made their way from VA to Green county TN and then to Hinds and Claiborn County, Mississippi. Most of Miles direct decendants are buried in the Cayuga Cemetery in Hinds county Mississippi and Oakhurst Cemetery in Clarksdale, MS. Some of this data is contary to Earl Luster book on the Lusters, but from my research the dates and places fit and the methodlogy works. I will up date this as time goes on and would appreciat any correction or coments on my methodlogy.
