    Currently researching Rusk/Jordan/ Little interconnected families in co Fermagh.

    • janine sutter Says:

      No doubt we are related! In the research done by my cousin, David Rusk, William Rusk married Mary Jordan . William would be the nephew of my great great grandfather, Richard Rusk who married Ann Swindle and went to Adelaide, South Australia. In May I am going to brookeborough for a week to “catch” any family history that I can. Strangely my great grandfather , Robert Rusk, married a Hannah Jordan in 1877. Could there be a connection?
