Christopher Jr.'s genealogical info in the Slusher Family History











Christopher, Jr. (1781-1853) married Hannah Meyers and moved to Lafayette Co., Missouri in 1828 where they raised a family of eleven children, only the youngest of whom was born in Missouri. Land in Virginia owned at one time by Christopher, Jr., included a trading post and tavern which today is the site of the Town House Motel in Hillsville, Va.

Two fairly large documents (one of them 133 pages, the other 92 pages) are available for download here.

"Descendants of Christopher Stuffle Slusher, Jr." by Virginia Lee Slusher Fisher, published March 1994 is an outstanding family history of Christopher, Jr.'s move to Missouri and a compilation of over 1,100 descendants and family members.

"A History of Homes" by the Slusher Homemakers Club 1936 is a collection of historical sketches of the Slusher Community in Missouri.


Both documents were scanned from photocopies-- so the quality of the photographs (particularly in "A History of Homes") is significantly deteriorated from the photocopy/rescan process. However, the vast majority of text is clearly readable.
