Lori,

What you won't find is the small details regarding Samuel Lusk Jr. capture by the Shawnee Indians. /// Just after Samuel Jr.'s father & 3 brothers were murdered in a raid he joined his father's best friend & partner, Joseph Gilbert, in joining the Militia as a young 16 yr old scout. When they were ambushed by the Shawnee Gilbert fought to protect him, Samuel JR wounded in the hand, but Gilbert was cut up and murdered in front of Samuel Jr. trying to protect him. Samuel's "story" can really choke a person up...sad. Jim
