* The Rusks from Ireland*

Updated November 7, 2005

This family tree consists of approximately 252 Rusk descendants of John Rusk who was born about 1750 in Ulster Ireland, and immigrated to the United States in 1791. While some of the information came from personal acquaintances, most came from published documents and other Rusks I have contacted over the years.

I am a descendant of John Rusk through his son, David Rusk (b. abt. 1820 in Clemson, South Carolina). David and his brother, Thomas Jefferson Rusk, both fought in the Battle of San Jacinto against the Mexican Army for Texas's Independence from Mexico in 1836.

My father was William Carl Rusk (b. 4/8/1912, d. 6/14/1978); my grandfather was William Henry Rusk (b. 9/11/1885, d. 5/10/1982); my g-grandfather was David Franklin Rusk (b. 7/25/1852, d. 12/24/1911); my gg-grandfather was David Rusk (b. abt. 1820). David was T. J. Rusk's brother.

I was born in Wills Point, Texas (about 50 miles east of Dallas) and now live in Richardson, Texas.
