  1. [S516] Rusk Roundup Revisited, John LaMont, compiler, online, Children of David Rusk and Margaret Vance, clearly well researched, but without citations. An obvious error is the birth dates of David Jr. and Jonathan, only four months apart, and perhaps those of Jonathan and Margaret, eleven months apart.
