I sent you an email concerning my Samuel Lusk Jr data.
Your John Corder and Ruth Lusk are in the Auglaize Co OHIO census of 1850. Now, this is the county that WILLIAM LUSK of Tazewell Va settled . It may be that Ruth Ann Lusk is the daughter of William Lusk, not Samuel Lusk. None of the Samuel Lusk researchers have a Ruth Ann as child of Samuel and Sarah.
William Lusk Sr is to believed to be the brother of Samuel Lusk Jr.
William Lusk was born 1785 VA per cemetery inscription in Auglaize Co Ohio. He was married in Tazewell, Dec 25, 1806, to Charity Runyon. Several children, Benjamin born 1810, James Harvey and John Wesley, twins born 1826, Tazewell VA, Joseph G born 1812, VA, Charles 1814, Va; William Jr born 1823; Betsy (Elizabeth) born 1818 VA: Polly (Nancy) born 1805, Martha born unknown.

William Jr Lusk married Sarah Bennett 1844, Allen County Ohio.

William LUsk Sr. lived somewhere in ABs Valley VA, not too far from where I live now. They moved from TAzewell Va to Allen Co Ohio around 1835.
According to a Lusk researcher, most of William Lusk Sr family are buried in Lusk cemetary in Auglaize Co Ohio. William Lusk Sr had a brother, Charles Lusk who married Anne Runyon, Charity's sister. Tazewell Va.
