Our Lusks went north out of CT into western MA and then across the border into NY. They are thought to be Scottish. The line goes: Stephen, John-CT, William- CT to NY, James- NY, William- NY (Rev.,Presbyterian)to Wisconsin, James W.- Wisconsin & into Minnesota 1885. No evidence of a connection that I can see to the Penn.Lusks. I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHERE YOU GOT THE INFORMATION ABOUT STEPHEN. THAT'S MORE THAN I HAVE. In fact we have been uncertain about whether Stephen is the father of our John b. 1702 or 03, d.1788, married Jane Trumball b. 1705.

The website discusses the possibility that the Lusks were Scotch-Irish. That might be true of our families.
