Generation One

 

1.    Frederick Husk, b. 17__, d. bef Jun 1848.

      

       "Frederick Husk (or Hust) apparently settled near the mouth of Dolls Run [in what is now the north central part of West Virginia].  In some old deeds, that stream is called Hust's Run, but the family long ago passed out of the community, and even the name applied to the stream did not stick.  The last property passed out of the hands of the family on June 6, 1846, when Elizabeth Husk, widow of Samuel Husk, and the other heirs, Frederick Husk and Nancy his wife, Isaac Husk and Jane his wife, George Britton and Mary his wife, Samuel Husk and Dorcas his wife, Horatio Britton and Elizabeth his wife, transferred 100 acres to Solomon Bowers."  ["Chronicles of Core," 3rd Edition, by Earl L. Core, McClain Printing Company, Parsons, WV, 1975, p. 35]

      

       A handwritten copy of a land grant, which is to Frederick Husk, October 9, 1781:

       "The Commissioners for Adjusting the Claims to Unpatented Lands and the Corporation of Monongalia, Yohagania of Ohio:

       We hereby certify that Frederick Husk is entitled to two hundred acres of land in Monongalia County on Dunkards' Creek adjoining lands claimed by Michal Core to include is improvements made in the year 1770.

                  Given under our hands  this 6th day of March in the 6th Year of the Commonwealth.

                            John Evans   James Neal   Charles Martin   William Haymond   Simon Troy

                            This certificate cannot be entered with the surveyor after the 26th day of October 1791.

                            Attested: John Hayle.  Entered 9 October 1781."

       [The Monongalia Story, Vol I, by Earl L. Core, McClain Printing Co, pp. 57, 159]

      

       On Mar 14 1796, Frederick Husk was a member of the jury of inquest (the first meeting of the court after the records were burned that year).  [The Monongalia Story, Vol. II, p. 256]

      

       This is a genealogy of the descendants of this Frederick Husk (or Hust, or Hurst), with particular emphasis on those branches of the family tree closest to the principal compilers, Samuel David Gaston and Geneva Gaston Brown.  The information presented here was obtained from countless sources over many years of research.  Wherever possible, the original source is documented, but the reader can rest assured that even when a source is not specified, the compilers were highly confident of the accuracy of the information before including it in this collection.

      

       Though not proven, the following Husk family is probably connected to the Husk lineage which is the focus of this genealogy.  They are more fully described at http://www.doddridgecountyroots.com/bk6html/f20121.html :

         1.  Isaac Husk, b. ca 1838 in Pennsylvania, 1850 & 1860 Census in Monongalia Co, 1870 & 1880 Census in Washington Co Pa.

              m. Elizabeth Johnson, b. ca 1837 in Pa.

              m. Louisa Wharton

              Children by first wife:

              2.  William Johnson Husk, b. 1859 in Monongalia Co, (W)Va.

                    m. Ida Roberta McIntyre in 1885 in Tyler Co WVa, b. 1867 in Tyler Co, d. 1936 in Tyler Co.

                    They had 12 children:  Ethel Leora, Nancy Louisa, William Luther, Edgar Leo, Dwight Lovell, Amma Lotus, Dewey Liston, Hazel L, Herbert Leslie, Omer Russel, Virginia Pearl, Chloe Frances.

       If any reader of this genealogy knows how this Husk family is connected to our primary Husk lineage, please let us know.

      

       Despite extensive research in more recent years, nothing about the ancestors of the elder Frederick Husk (or Hust, or Hurst) has been discovered.  Information on the earliest of his descendants has also been very hard to come by.  However, this genealogy is, and always will be, a work in progress, and additional information regarding the early generations, as well as the current one, will be added as it becomes known.  In that vein, readers of this collection are invited to inform us of any errors or additional information for future updates.  [Samuel David Gaston (1934-2012) & Geneva Gaston Brown (1926-2001), principal compilers; R. L. Brown, editor]

      

       He married Unknown.

                                      Children:

                2.          i.       SAMUEL HUSK b. 17__.

 

 

Generation Two

 

2.    Samuel Husk (1.Frederick1), b. 17__ in Virginia,[1] d. bef 1830.[2],[3]  He married Elizabeth ___, b. ca 1785 in Pennsylvania, d. aft Jun 1846,3 census 1830, 1840 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA.

      

       Samuel Husk predeceased his father, Frederick, who had died prior to June 1848.  Since Elizabeth appeared in the 1830 Census as the head of family, we must assume that Samuel had already died by then.

      

       1830 Census, Western District of Monongalia County, Virginia (now West Virginia):

       Household of Elizabeth Husk:

       1 female, age 60-69  (is this Elizabeth's mother or mother-in-law ?)

       1 female, 40-49  (this would be Elizabeth herself)

       2 females, 5-9  (daughters Mary & Elizabeth)

       1 female, under 5  (daughter Sarah)

       1 male, 15-19  (son Frederick)

       2 males, 10-14  (son Isaac, and another son ?)

       1 male, 5-9  (son Samuel)

      

       1840 Census, Western District of Monongalia County, Virginia (now West Virginia):

       Household of Elizabeth Husk:

       1 female age 50-60  (this would be Elizabeth herself)

       1 female, 20-30  (dau Mary)

       1 female, 15-20  (dau Elizabeth)

       1 female, 10-15  (dau Sarah)

       1 male, 20-30  (son Frederick)

       2 males, 15-20  (son Samuel, and another son ?)

       (Note:  If ages are correct, son Isaac is not accounted for in this census.)

      

       The next-listed household is for Harvey Husk, with the following members:

       1 male, age 20-30

       3 males, under 5

       1 female, 20-30

       1 female, under 5

      

       We have not been able to determine how this Harvey Husk fits in with the other Husks of this genealogy.  Could he be the "other son" in the 1830 Census?

      

      

                                      Children:

                3.          i.       FREDERICK HUSK b. Sep- 7-1815.

                4.          ii.      ISAAC HUSK b. Jan-12-1818.

                5.          iii.     MARY J. "POLLY" HUSK b. Mar-21-1821.

                6.          iv.     SAMUEL A. HUSK b. Jun- 8-1823.

                7.          v.      ELIZABETH HUSK b. ca 1825.

                8.          vi.     SARAH ANNE HUSK b. Feb- 6-1828.

       Census reported Frederick Husk as the head of family, age 20-30, with the other household members being one female age 20-30 (presumably wife Nancy) and one female age 60-70 (possibly mother-in-law Jane Wade Britton).

                                      Died in Confederate prison in Civil War, per various sources.  According to Brenton Leon Husk, George W. Husk belonged to Company A, 14th Infantry, and was taken prisoner at Cloyds Mountain, Virginia on May 9th, 1864.  Much of this information is confirmed in "Soldiers' Memorial," published April 1865 and cited in the Clarksburg Exponent-Telegram of Nov 24, 1999.

                                     

                10.        iii.     LEANDER WILSON HUSK b. May-  -1846.

4.    Isaac Husk, census name Isaac Hush,[15] (2.Samuel2, 1.Frederick1), 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.], d. 1902 near Summers, Doddridge Co, WV,14,[16] buried in Hart Cemetery, Taylor Drain Rd, Oxford, Doddridge Co WV,[17] resided near Summers, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1870, 1880, 1900 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1850 in Aleppo Twp, Greene Co, PA, military (Civil War) Pvt, Co H, 4th W.Va. Cav (Aug 1863 - Jun 1864) and Co C, 6th W.Va. Inf (1864 - Jun 1865).[18],[19],17  Partner Catherine Wright Evans.  He married (2) Elizabeth Jane Critchfield, also known as Jane Critchfield,17,3,[20],[21] b. Mar-17-1825 in Greene Co, PA,17,[22] (daughter of John Critchfield, Sr. and Sarah Whitlatch), d. Feb-17-1890 in Doddridge Co, WV,17 buried in Hart Cemetery, Taylor Drain Rd, Oxford, Doddridge Co WV,[23] census 1870, 1880 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV.

      

       Elizabeth: 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.

      

       1850 Census, Greene Co, PA (Aleppo Twp), enumerated on Oct 17 1850:

       Isaac Hush, 33, farmer, b. Virginia; Jane, 26, b. Pennsylvania; Samuel, 5, b. Pa; John E, 3, b. Pa; Absalom, 1, b. Pa.

      

       1870 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (South West Township), enumerated on Sep 1 1870:

       Isaac Husk, 50, farmer, b. Pennsylvania; Jane Husk, 45, housekeeper, b. Pa.; Absalom Husk, 20, farm laborer, b. Pa.; Elizabeth M. Husk, 16, b. Pa.; Isaac N. Husk, 14, b. Pa.; Samuel A. Husk, 12, b. Pa.; William L. Husk, 9, b. Virginia; George W. Husk, 6, b. West Virginia; Martha C. Husk, 4, b. W. Va.; Nancy V. Husk, 2, b. W. Va.; William Hart, 19, farm laborer, b. Virginia; Sarah J. Hart, 19, housekeeper, b. Pa.

      

       1880 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (Southwest District), enumerated on Jun 1 1880:

       Isac Husk, 60, b. Pa, both parents b. Pa, farmer; wife Jane, 55, b. Pa, both parents b. Pa; son Leonard, 18; son George W, 16; dau Martha C, 14; dau Nancy V, 12; granddaughter Rosa A. Hart, 1.

      

       In the 1900 Census of Doddridge County, Isaac Husk was listed in the household of son George and was described as 81, b. Mar 1819 in Pa, father b. in (blank), mother b. in Pa, widowed.

      

       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 Isaac’s 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.

Mr. Husk asks in a letter.  'Just fifty years ago tonight, February 10 1899, a schoolmate of mine passed away.  A few minutes before he died, he asked me to select his burial outfit.  Granting his wish, I chose to walk nine miles to West Union, starting at 7 o'clock.  When I left the house, the thermometer reading was thirty-eight degrees below zero, and when I arrived at West Union about the middle of the night, it was forty-two degrees below zero.'  Mr. Husk recalls that on that particular errand, he did not stop to rest!  He also says that with the help of a friend, he opened a grave for his schoolmate at the Powell graveyard on Buckeye, the mercury at the time sagging to thirty-eight below zero."[436]
