Joseph Albert Lusk - Coffee County, TN

I am working on the CUNNYNGHAM line from Coffee County, Tennessee.

I note that Joseph Albert LUSK married Elizabeth Ann CUNNYNGHAM, daughter of William CUNNYNGHAM and Eliza L. CROCKETT.

My source:

LUSK, Joseph Albert - Pvt./Capt. He m. Elizabeth Ann CUNNYNGHAM.~ *Born and resided
Coffee Co., fair complexion, brown hair, blue eyes, 5'7", student. Enr. 29 Apr 61 at Hillsboro, aged 22; promoted 27 June 62 to Captain and succeeded as Ltn. by Jesse R. GUNN; wounded at Cedar Run, VA, 9 Aug 62; left arm amputated; succeeded as Captain by Jesse R. GUNN.

Furloughed from hosp at Danville on 6 July 64; under treatment at Genl Hosp No 1, Lynchburg, VA; returned to Bristol, Sullivan Co., Tenn. commanding conscripts. He transferred as Capt. to the 4th Tenn. Inf. Reg't, but shows only as Pvt. Joseph LUSK, Company I, 41st Infantry Regiment. As this Company was formed from men in Franklin and Bedford Counties, this is possibly the same man. He applied for pension from Coffee after 1891, #3442.*

Saundra Anderson's home page at FTM shows George Washington LUSK married Elizabeth Ann CUNNYNGHAM on January 9, 1859, the brother of Joseph Albert LUSK.

A FTM disk on Tennessee marriages shows G. W. LUSK married E. A. CUNNYNGHAM ON January 9, 1859 in Coffee County, Tennessee.

Saundra Anderson shows a marriage for Ann Elizabeth BURROWS on April 13, 1877 to Joseph Albert LUSK.

Ann Elizabeth BURROWS was the widow of James M. CUNNYNGHAM, brother of Ann Elizabeth CUNNYNGHAM. Ann Elizabeth BURROWS was adopted by Thomas T. BURROWS, so her true ancestry is unknown to me.

The 1900 11th Civil District, Coffee County, Tennessee shows the LUSK family: Joseph, Ann E., married 23 years (about 1877) with children Cheatam and Joseph A. (daughter) living in the household.

My question after all that:

Does anyone know FOR SURE--and I mean for SURE--which of the LUSK brothers married Elizabeth Ann CUNNYNGHAM?

I'm confused enough because John Thompson CUNNYNGHAM, brother of Elizabeth Ann CUNNYNGHAM, married the sister of Joseph Albert and William Washington LUSK.
