  • Notes 
    • He was the 3rd child of John & Emily Lusby. Birth and parents recorded in Lusby Bible. Married to Araminta Hudson April 1, 1844. Note - Araminta Hudson was a sister to John Monroe Hudson, who married Araminta Lusby. Josiah and Araminta Hudson Lusby lived on a farm near Kennedyville, above Urieville, owned by his father John Lusby.

      They lost two children and then Josiah lost his wife Araminta. He buried both children and his wife in the Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Kennedyville, MD. There aren't any markers. The story goes on, given to me by Eope and Maude Hudson, that after Josiah's wife died he lost his farm. John Lusby left this farm in his will to his sons of his 1st wife, Robert James, Charles Thomas, Josiah, Eli, and John Raymond Lusby (2nd wife) and the children of his deceased daughter's Araminta Hudson. The farm was 300 acres and was where Josiah lived. He couldn't have lost the farm until after his father died (John Lusby) 1872.

      The story I gather is after his wife Araminta Hudson Lusby died he met Emily C. Usilton. Her father disapproved of this marriage so they were married at John Lusby's home (Josiah's father). Later Josiah and Emily bought a home farm near his father, between Chestertown and Fairlee. It was known then as the Lusby farm, but now as the Nicholson farm. Albert Nicholson bought it from his Aunt Daisy Reinhart, who was a Granddaughter of Josiah and Emily Lusby. (Mrs. Edward Bryan Lusby)

      Josiah might have been a poor man at one time, but when he died he owned five (5) farms in Kent Co. and left each child a farm. (Mrs. Edward Bryan Lusby)
      Married by the Rev. Valiant. [14]
