    • The Bellville Countryman, 18 Dec 1861: MAJ. SAMUEL LUSK?This old citizen and servant of Christ, died at his residence in Brenham, Washington Co., Texas, Dec. 6, 1861, in the 61st. year of his age.

      Bro. Lusk was a native of Buncombe county, North Carolina, but was reared and educated mainly in Tennessee, where at the age of 22 he was joined in marriage with Miss America W. Coffee, with whom he lived to the day of his death. He moved from Tenn. into Alabama, and there remained until 1835, when he emigrated to Texas. Here he soon secured by his uprightness and integrity of character the confidence and esteem of the people among whom he settled, as was proven by having confided to him positions of public honor and trust. He was also a member of the Convention in 1836 which ratified the Act of annexation to the U.S. and framed the present Constitution of the State. It is not too much to say that Maj. Lusk was highly esteemed as a citizen and loved as a christian. He was first a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination, but afterwards unified with the Baptists, and was baptized into the fellowship of the Brenham Baptist Church, in 1853, of which he lived a consistent member up to the time of his disease. As a christian Bro. Lusk seemed ever distrustful of himself, but trusted in Christ for salvation. He was a man of prayer and faith. When brought to look into the "valley of the shadow of death," he did not shrink, expressed a willingness to die regarding the danger as desirable. With his last words he gave his friends most comfortable assurance of peace and joy in believing.

      A wife and children, and a large circle of friends mourn the loss of our friend and brother. May that hope which bore him up throughout his sufferings to the end, sustain and comfort the hearts of the greatly bereaved wife and children, and prepare us all to follow with "joy and not with fear" when our time shall come.
