JONES PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CEMETERY, ISOM, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

Thomas Whiteside 1790 - 1853.

LUSK, Samuel, 1737 - 8 Feb 1820. (b. Lancaster Co., Pa, d. Hampshire, Maury Co., Tn.; Son of James & Elizabeth Lusk; husband of Margaret Lusk; one of Maury County's oldest pioneers.)
This crumbling old stone is no longer readable. Mr. Fred and Evelyn I hope you'all got it right in 1967 & 1987 respectably. However, we can make out: IN -- Memory of -- SAMUEL LUSK -- who died feb. -- the _ _ _ _ _ 8 0(for 1820?) aged _ _ _ ?" I suppose they calculated the birth year date 1737 from the age of 83 that was readable at one time. This old stone is about as soft as a piece of hard bread and water will do it in eventually.
