Anyone have info on Curtis Lusk b. 1885 MO and Married Maude Julia Hobbs b. 1886 Calif. I believe Curtis was son of David Lusk and Mary E. Davis from TN and MO.

This Curtis Lusk's parents and siblings were found in Modoc Co., Calif 1900, 1910, 1920 then in Ashland, OR in 1930. Curtis and his wife Maude Lusk were later found as registered voters and or city directories in Manteca, CA 1937 through 1944. Curtis is found in Oregon Death Index showing Curtis Lusk, Jackson Co., OR, died 24 Feb 1956 spouse Maude. Maude Jul Lusk was found Oregon Death Index and Social Security Death Index born 6 Sep 1886 and died 21 May 1976, last residence Ashland, Jackson Co., OR.

Maude's father was Horace H. Hobbs b. Dec 1852 born MO.
wife Alice Hobbs, born Oct 1862 Oregon
John Hobbs, son, born Nov 1882 CA.
Maude Julia Hobbs, daughter, born Sep 1886 CA.
Ray or Roy O. Hobbs, son, born Aug1888 CA.
Lena Hobbs, daughter, born Oct 1892 CA.
Carrie Hobbs, daughter, born Jan 1894 CA.
Della Hobbs, daughter, born March 1897 CA

At the time of the 1900 CA census they were living next door to the David Lusk family including his wife Nancy and his mother Mary E. Lusk age 59 born Sep 1840 born TN and shows widowed.

Missouri birth records show male born 26 Apr 1885 St. Clair, Speedwell Twp. white mothers name Mary E. Lusk age 44, father David D. Lusk age 63. Birth date matches Curtis Lusk WWI Draft registration.

1880 MO census Roscoe, St. Clair Co. shows David Lusk age 60 and wife Marry E. Lusk age 40 both born in TN. Children listed Margaret, David, Joseph, Julia, Millard, Harry Lusk all born in MO.

1870 MO census Xenia Twp., Clay Co. shows David T. Lusk age (writing not clear maybe 58) born TN, wife Mary E. Lusk, age 30, born TN. Children listed Samuel, Robert, Margaret, David, Joseph, July Lusk all born Illinois.

1860 TN census Maryville, Blount Co., TN is of poor quality on but their index shows David Lusk 38, wife Mary Lusk age 28, John Lusk age 16, William Lusk age 14, Elizabeth Lusk age 12, Julia Lusk age 11, Martha Lusk age 7, Samuel Lusk age 6, Robert Lusk age 3.

Marriage License or Bonds, Blount Co. TN from 1795 to 1854-60 page 113 shows number 2264, David D. Lusk and Mary E. Davis married Sept. 1, 1859 by James Hamil, J.P.

This looks like his second marriage since some of his children on the 1860 census are older than his marriage to Mary E. Davis. It looks like David has died in the 1900 CA census as Mary is living with her son David Lusk b. 1869.

Looking for connections to David and wife Mary Davis-Lusk back in TN, Davis 1st wife, his parents etc.
