scout, married Susan Stephenson and they had five sons; that Samuel and the three oldest boys were killed by Indians, leaving Susan with two younger boys Eli and Samuel, Jr; that Susan married Thomas Godfrey and had two children, Absalom and Byrd Godfrey; that Eli Lusk and Absalom, half brothers, were early settlers in the head of Little Huff about 1824; that Samuel Lusk, Jr, was the scout made prisoner by the Indians in 1792; that neither Samuel Lusk, Sr, nor Samuel Lusk, Jr, ever lived in Wyoming Co, territory."
