i have just begun researching this line, & have already hit a snag. i'm hoping someone can help. here is what i have:

elizabeth lusk b1891, cambridge mass (m charles s. fisk)
john t lusk b1860, boston mass (m mary a. maloney)
thomas james lusk b1838, canada (m elizabeth)

i have seen birth, marriage, & census records, so have a bit more info.

i know that both john & thomas were printers in boston (the latter listed on both 1180 & 1910 census).

here is where it gets muddled: i have found conflicting info for thomas & elizabeth. either people made mistakes, or i am seeing TWO thomas lusks, born about 5 or so years apart, both having been born in canada, both living in boston, both working as printers, both married to elizabeths (two possible last names).

i am looking for people who have the above people in their family tree, most especially those who have records to help me decide if there were in fact two thomases, & if so, which was mine.

thank you.
