Hi James -

Thanks for looking into this - (and sorry I have not been back to check for replies sooner).

I am the secondary source you cited - leesgenes - and on one page I mentioned that the information came from you, but on the page you looked at, the information was part of a larger quotation from someone else (Walter Bailey) who must have copied you - or gotten it from the person I got it from - I think Barbara Boyce, who was very helpful when I was starting out.

[This is a REAL problem with Internet genealogy - it's great to find so much info so easily, but one also finds info that has since been corrected or updated - but not necessarily the correction.]

I have not found Samuel Lusk mentioned in any of the Virginia Papers I looked at, which makes me wonder if I have not been looking in the right places.

Anyway, thanks for replying.
