This must be your Virgil Lusk:

Virgil was captured in the Civil War and sent to Johnson’s Island from 1862 – 1865. While there, he wrote to his Cousin Pauline and her husband Dan Carpenter who were living in Missouri at the time. He mentions: Uncle James, Molly who was boarding with her grandfather Moore, Pauline’s Uncle Lee and Aunt Elize. He also mentions other Lusk in prison: Thomas and James who died in prison.
