         Some question exists as to her correct first name.  Although widely believed to have been Sarah, evidence seems more to indicate Elizabeth.  In either event, she was known almost exclusively only by her middle name, Jane.  Her name was given as Jane in the 1870 Census, and even her headstone identifies her only as "Jane, wife of Isaac Husk."  The death record of Isaac Newton Husk incorrectly lists his parents as Isaac Husk and Jane Whetlatch [sic], confusing his mother with his grandmother, Sarah Whitlatch.

        

         She married Isaac Husk, census name Isaac Hush,[32] b. Jan-12-1818 in Greene Co, PA [Son George Washington Husk's death record identifies his father's birthplace as Pennsylvania, and daughter Martha's death record states father's birthplace as Greene Co, PA.  But 1850 Census of Greene Co, Pa. gives his birthplace as Virginia, while all other family members are shown as being born in Pennsylvania.  The 1900 Census of Doddridge County states his birth date as March 1819.] (son of Samuel Husk and Elizabeth ___), d. 1902 near Summers, Doddridge Co, WV,[33],[34] buried in Hart Cemetery, Taylor Drain Rd, Oxford, Doddridge Co WV,14 census 1870, 1880, 1900 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1850 in Aleppo Twp, Greene Co, PA, military 1864 - Jun-15-1865 Pvt, Co C, 6th W.

         The exact history of the original charcoal of the widely-distributed formal portrait of the elderly Isaac Husk has not been determined.  However, it is known that it was handed down to his grandson Walter "Shiner" Husk.  Per Shiner's instructions, upon his death in 1993, it was in turn passed down to Isaac's great-grandson Samuel D. Gaston.  Following Sam's death in 2012, it was handed down to his nephew and Isaac's g-g-grandson, Renee L. Brown, with whom Sam had collaborated on this genealogy for so many years.

Many of them built houses in the narrow hollows, where the sun shown but a few hours a day.  ...  Mary Husk Bryner, who died more recently in her late nineties, recalled hard times near The Husk. Her family fought starvation in the early part of the 1900's 'eating snow birds and weed soup' just to make it through."

         He married Oct-27-1917 in Doddridge Co, WV,92,146 [The obituaries of both Ernest and Florence give their marriage date as Oct 27 1917, but the marriage record, as completed by the officiating minister, states that the ceremony was held on Oct 28 1917 at "the residence of Evert Husk in Doddridge Co.
