Hi again Jim -
Sam Lusk couldn't possibly have been a prisoner with Jenny Wiley, who returned home sometime in 1790 - Sam was captured in 1792. Another Lusk researcher shared this link with me: http://www.natchezbelle.org/oldtime/jenny.htm
This particular site quotes from The Pack Family of Lincoln County, West Virginia, by Ellen Jane Allen Pack. It does not mention Sam Lusk as a fellow prisoner, but does contain quite a detailed account of her captivity and escape.
There is another version (which also does not mention Samuel Lusk) in a book called Harman genealogy (southern branch) with biographical sketches, 1700-1924 - which I have not read.
I can only think that Johnston had something against the Lusks - or Sam in particular.
