Looking for family of John Lusk. According to 1880 Census for Flint, Genesee, Mich. he was living with his daughter, Mary E. Weatherwax, age 23 and her husband Stephen Weatherwax, age 65. Stephen had a daughter Fidelia Weatherwax, age 13. Mary's two brothers, George Lusk, age 21 and Frank Lusk, age 7 were also living with them.

I believe this John Lusk could be the son of our great great grandfather, Peter Lusk of Hungerford Township, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada.

If anyone would have some info on John, George and Frank Lusk or his daughter Mary E. (Lusk) Weatherwax it would be appreciated, and will gladly share info.
