James Lusk's land as shown on the Beverley Manor Map, on the map meticulously drawn by J.R. Hildebrand, cartographer. This map is copyrighted©, used by permission of John Hildebrand, son of J.R. Hildebrand, April, 2009. (Note: this shows the adjoining tract of his father, Nathan Lusk, which is apparently mis-labeled (based upon records of adjoining settlers)as "James Lusk") The adjoining tract acquired by James Lusk's father, Nathan Lusk prior to 1746 most likely passed onto James after his father's death in 1748, which may explain why it is labeled with James Lusk's name.
