I'm looking for the parentage of Samuel Lusk, b. ca. 1800 in North Carolina, d. 1880 in Watauga Co., NC. He m.21 Dec 1821 in Wilkes County, to Mary Townsend, daughter of James Townsend. I have three potential candidates for Samuel's father, all appearing in the 1790 census for Rowan County: Samuel, William, and Hugh. Hugh is in the tax lists for 1778, so I'm assuming he's older than Samuel and William. Does anyone have information on this family? I'm doing work for a friend who is descended from Samuel (1800) through his daughter, Suzanne.
