Hello Joyce
I have written you before, just thought I would let you know that Ifound the marriage record for Reese Estill Lusk in the Tazewell co courthouse records.
If you remember, in Wayne co WV, 1860 census, Reece T. Lusk is listed with children, Adrinam; age 21, Crockett, age 16; Matilda, age 14; Louevinia age 12; Octava, age 11, and BOYD age 8. Now most everyone's records show BOYD LUSK married to Susannah Cline, yet on the marriage record of Reese Estill Lusk, his parents are listed as BOYD AND LOUISA LUSK. Reece claims to be born in Bourbon Co Ky and living in Mercer Co WV. I am thinking maybe Louisa was a single Mom and Boyd was the daddy of Reese Estill Lusk. We are still looking into this matter. Have you ever seen another BOYD LUSK in Mercer or Wayne co records, I haven't.
Boyd and Susanna married March 1870 and Reese Estill Lusk was born Nov 1870. Boyd might not have known Louisa was pregnant with his child when he married Susanna. Sounds like a soap opera, doesn't it. Hopefully someone has record of Reese Estill Lusk being born to a Louisa with Boyd Lusk as his father.
