A large flat slate stone was laid on top of her body. While Mike Lusk did return to England, he left the body of his little girl entombed in the Lock.
My initial thought was that it might be a version of the Gretchen story, but the article went on to say there were actually two girls buried in Locks for the Sand and Beaver Canal System. Gretchen and little Miss Lusk.
One of my favorite stories on the Lisbon Haunted and Historical Tour is about Erastus Eells. My buddy Briana was looking through a book in the library with me down in the history room and she found an actual picture of him! It is great to be able to see what some of the actual historical characters looked like from this county!
