I have not been on line on message boards since last posting because I am caring for my 85 yr. old father in law ......since then I have come in contact with a Karl Lusk and a Robert Lusk......the Chester Co., Pa. Lusk's connect with the Lusk's of N.C., Tenn, Va. Ms, New Mexico. Mo, Ok, and probably more that I cant think of right now. In my line of Cochran's...we are trying to connect an Elizabeth Lusk who may have married a Cochran but I DO know that we have a connection thru Elsie Pearl Coulter who married James Calaway Lusk. Excuse me please, it is early morning and I am very tired. I have the will of William Lusk written down. I will be changing servers at the end of this month....to where I do not know, or I would tell you all my new email. Right now it is email@example.com
