Birth: Jun. 13, 1824
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 3, 1893, USA

Joseph Luse, of the firm of Warner & Luse, Flora, Ill., was born June 13, 1824, in Washington County, Penn. While he was yet a child, his parents, Daniel and Susan (Hartley) Luse, removed to Ohio and settled in Guernsey County, where he grew to manhood, being reared upon the farm and educated in the common schools.

He was married, November 10, 1847, in Guernsey County, to Miss Elizabeth Starr, daughter of James and Catherine (Hiskett) Starr. She was born, July 4, 1827, in Guernsey County, Ohio.

Mr. Luse continued on the farm in Ohio until the fall of 1864, when, having completed a term of enlistment in the military service, he removed his family to Illinois, and settled in Harter Township, Clay County. He here prosecuted his farming interest until coming to Flora, in 1881, and still owns a landed interest of several hundred acres. Since coming to Flora he has engaged in an extensive mercantile business, associated with C. H. Warner.

His family are Sarah C, wife of Ed Higginson; Susan M. . wife of Samuel Finley; Mary E., wife of L. Sheehan; William A. (deceased); John M.; Cynthia A., and Matilda, both of whom died in infancy; Linna, wife of R. L. Stanford; James S. (deceased); Joseph E., Alice and Charles L. Luse.

Mr. Luse is an Elder in the Christian Church, of which Mrs. Luse is also an honored member.
