I received information from an obituary that says a John Lusk was married in 1839 in Victor NY to Caroline Force, not Isabel, and died in Eckford, Calhoun County, Michigan. However, I'm wondering if Caroline Force was married to a son of John Lusk from West Stockbridge MA, rather than the father.

Your depiction of the census data is correct, John Lusk last appears in Ontario County NY in 1830. I haven't been able to find any marriage record for John Lusk.

John Lusk's father was Asahel Lusk. John was born about 1786 in West Stockbridge MA. I hadn't until now been able to find a spouse name for him or names of his children. He is one of the two oldest sons of Asahel Lusk and Desire Barker.

You didn't mention in your post if you thought Jared Lusk was another son of John Lusk, and I'd be interested to know if you have since found anything else about John Lusk.
