Subject: Lusks from Saltcoats 1710-1761
Author: Phyllis (Lusk)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Lusk, Howe, Nesbit

We have traced father's line back to:
Robert Lusk b. Scotland abt 1710, d. abt 1788 in PA, USA

m. Jean Howe b. Scot. abt 1720 d. 1782 in PA, USA

Jean was previously married to William Lusk, a sailor, of
Saltscoat, Bute Co. The information I have says Robert was Williams son with Jean, so I am going to assume that John was also Williams son.
Jean had 2 sons born in Saltscoats, Bute Co.

John b. 1760

Robert b. 1761 d. 1835

I don't have a d. date for John or any other information.

Robert(son) m. Mary Nesbit in 1785. She died in 1830 in PA, USA

We'd like to know more about Jean Howe and Mary Nesbit, what happened to John (son), William (father). Does anyone have information about Robert's or William's parents? Were they brothers? Do you know when they left for the colonies? Thank you and hello to any unknown cousins!
