Mrs. Martha C. F. Lusk, wife of Mr. John Lusk, died at her home in Cherokee county on the 6th of December, 1883. She was the daughter of Mr. John Guyton, deceased, and was born in Union district, S. C., November 19th, 1816. Her father, when she was sixteen years old moved to Cass county and settled on Pettit’s creek, on the place now known as the Guyton place. She was married to Mr. John Lusk in 1848, who, with two grown sons, survive her. Mrs. Lusk, in 1866 united herself with the Baptist church and remained a consistent member of that church until her death. She was for many years a great sufferer from disease, which she bore patiently and with Christian resignation. She was devoted as a wife to the interests and happiness of her husband and as a mother, she was unfaltering in her love and tender care. She was kind and obliging as a neighbor and having filled up the measure of her days we have good hope that through Christ she has entered the rest of the people of God.
