Joseph and Sarah J. Lusk...



Mike Lusk - Dec 8, 2009

Joseph and Sarah J. Lusk

Still working on Tennessee>

Sequatchie County, TN. On December 9, 1857, the Tennessee General Assembly created Sequatchie County from Hamilton, Marion and Warren Counties and named Dunlap as the county seat. Sequatchie County is bordered by Van Buren County (north), Bledsoe County (northeast), Hamilton County (southeast), Marion County (southwest), Grundy County (west) and Warren County (northwest).

Bledsoe County was created on November 1807 from Roane County and Indian Lands ; named in honor of Anthony Bledsoe (1733-1788), colonial and Revolutionary War soldier, surveyor, Tennessee militia colonel and early settler of Sumner County who was killed by Indians. The County seat is located at Pikeville. Bledsoe County is bordered by Cumberland County (north), Rhea County (east), Hamilton County (southeast), Sequatchie County (southwest) and Van Buren County (west) .

I find Joseph Lusk on the 1900 Sequatchie Co., TN census. It shows the following:
Joseph Lusk born Aug. 1850, age 49, born AL, father born AL, mother born AL.
Sarah J. Lusk, (Sarah Jane Young-Lusk), wife, born July 1853, age 46, born TN, father born TN, mother born TN.
William J. Lusk, (later census shows William G. Lusk), son, born Sept. 1881, age 18, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.
Dan R. Lusk, son, born Dec. 1883, age 16, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.
Henery F. Lusk, (will also go by Frank Henry Lusk), son, born June 1890, age 9, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.
Carrie Lusk, (Carrie E. Lusk), daughter, born Jan. 1895, age 5, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.
Mike Lusk Note: Census shows Sarah J. Lusk was the mother of 8 children with only 5 children still living at time of census. There are 3 unknown children to find born and died before 1900. Only 4 children shown still living at home on the 1900 census, therefore must be another living child not shown here on the 1900 census.

This family was the only Lusk family found in all the Sequatchie Co., census from 1850 to 1930. They were next found in the 1910 Bledsoe Co., TN census.

As a note, the family of Phillip M. Foust, head and father of Jessie A. Foust who will eventually marry I believe Dan R. Lusk the son of Joseph. This family will also next be found in Bledsoe Co., on the 1910 census.

I believe that Dan R. Lusk the son of Joseph married Jessie A. Foust-Lusk sometime between 1900 and 1906. Pikeville Cemetery, Bledsoe Co., TN has D. R. Lusk b. 1883 and d. 1907. Jessie is shown living with her parents on the 1910 TN census in Bledsoe Co. in Pikeville. She is shown as a widow, therefore leaning toward the proof of the marriage between her and Dan R. Lusk. There daughter Hazzle Lusk age 3 would have been born between 1906 and 1907 either before or shortly after Dan R. Lusk death.

1910 Bledsoe Co., TN census shows:
Joe Lusk, age 58, born AL, father born TN, mother born TN.
Sarah J. Lusk, age 55, wife, mother of 7 children with only 3 still living, born TN, father born TN, mother born TN.
Frank H. Lusk, son, age 19, single, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.
Carrie E. Lusk, duaghter, age 14, single, born TN, father born AL, mother born TN.

Living nearby in 1910 is the John B. Austin family with son Curtis Austin, age 17, born TN who will marry Carrie E. Lusk by the 1920 census.

Also shown on the 1910 TN, Bledsoe Co., Pikeville census:
Phillip M. Foust, age 50, born TN and living with his family, shown Jessie N. Lusk (Jessie A. Foust-Lusk), his daughter (wife of Dan R. Lusk), age26, shows widowed, mother of 1 child with 1 child still living, born TN, father born TN, mohter born TN. Also living with her is her daughter and she is shown as the grand daughter of Phillip is Hazzle Lusk, age 3, born TN, father born TN, mother born TN.

Joseph Lusk is found in the Collier Cemetery, Pikeville, Bledsoe Co., TN. born Aug. 22, 1855 and died June 22, 1915. The 1900 census showed a birth date of Aug. 1850. Verify.

Need information on Joseph Lusk 1850 before 1900 census. Birth place probably AL or maybe GA since Henry Frank Lusk on 1930 census shows father born GA. Who are Joseph's ancestors?

From Cemetery information it looks like Joseph's wife was Sarah Jane Young born in TN.

Wonder where William G. or J. Lusk and family were living in 1910?

Who is the 5th living child of Joseph and Sarah Lusk not shown on the 1900 census?

Again this was the only Lusk family living in Sequatchie or Bledsoe County, TN from the origination of both counties until 1930.

Any additional info on this family from 1930 to current appreciated.
