Hi Lori,
I also descend from David LUSK.
My g-g-grandfather was Absolum LUSK Jr, son of Absolum LUSK sr and Delilah "Dilly" Bailey. The person you are referring to is James McComas who was rumored to be a son of my David LUSK with Chloe (Bailey) LUSK who was 1st married to David McComas. Chloe and D McComas had been married with no children for 10 years and in his will D McComas left one dollar to his "son" James McComas. Ther is also a pulished judgement of The Commonwealth vs David LUSK and Chloe McCOMAS hints at an improper alliance between them but does not specifically state that James McComas is not David McComas's son. See Tazewell County VA Order book 1. There is alot of documentation on this see "History of Middle New River Settlements" p.432 and the LUSK family outline at
