Lusk Family Genealogy Forum
I am searching for LUSK family members of Julia Vida LUSK b.? married Joseph William STAUTS 1875 in Harrison Co.,TX. and died 03 Dec 1889. The 1880 census shows her at age 37 but her tombstone shows born 1841. Both her parents were born in Misissippi.
Julia Vida LUSK had two daughters, Julia Almeda (Stauts) Mosley, and Sarah Elizabeth Stauts (never married). Julia Almeda Mosley had six children and moved with them from Harrison Co. to "the Dallas area" after her husband died in 1917. It is thought that she might have moved to be with her mother's LUSK family (there were LUSK members in the Dallas area then but no Stauts families). Her unmarried sister Sarah Elizabeth went to live with Julia Almeda and remained there until her death 06 Jan 1964. Sarah Elizabeth's application for Social Security is dated 04 Feb 1943 listing mailing address as 2300 N.W. Fourth, Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co.,TX. This leads me to believe that Julia Vida LUSK may have been a member of one of the many LUSK families in the Whitt, Mineral Wells, Parker County and Palo Alto County area.
I would greatly appreciate any info you may have on Julia Vida LUSK and/or her family listed above.
Thank you ... Bill Stauts
