Additional research necessary].

Hi Vernon: I believe that Mary Lusk's parents were Robert Lusk and possibly Mary (Maiden Name Unknown). There is another cousin who thinks that Robert's wife was named Elizabeth but she has not sent anything to back that up. Do you have any information on the Lusk/McNabb family connection that you would be willing to share? George

    Robert Lusk's wife was Elizabeth, Carter County, not Mary
    Just an update to all Carter county Lusks who descended from Robert Lusk, it has been documented his wife's name was Elizabeth not Mary. WE feel he has been confused with the Robert Lusk who married Mary Vance in years past of historical traciings, etc. So just wanted to clarify this for all. The Cemetary record shows Elizabeth and stone in place is also engraved Elizabeth.
