Joseph Lusk I was one of the Watauga settlers and his name appears on the petition to North Carolina asking for protection against the raids of the Indians upon their settlements. He was among the patriots who marched against Ferguson in 1780 and fought in the decisive Battle of King's Mountain. Shortly after the close of the Revolution he moved to western North Carolina and settled near the present site of Asheville. Late in life he went to live at the home of his son Joseph Lusk II in Bradley county, Tennessee where he died August 15, 1839.
