Along the Wilderness Trail to the new River...through Wood's Gap...onto Goblintown Creek, Huckleberry Creek, Greasy Creek, Burks Fork of Little River, the Black Ridge, Buffalo the tiny communities of Jacksonville, Rush Fork (Santos) and Willis...came an unfolding line of ancestors who emigrated from Europe in the 1600's and 1700's and eventually made their way to southwestern Virginia. Among them was the youngest son of an immigrant and veteran of the Revolution -- Christopher Schlosser. This web site focuses on him, his ancestors, and his successors.  



The Slusher Family Organization held it's 27th Reunion on July 18, 2021 via ZOOM. About 20 relatives attended the meeting from the comfort of their own homes. The Zoom call was recorded and can be played back at this link.



Janet Keith reported on her research concerning the partition suit associated with the settlement of Christopher's estate. It appears that it took several years before it was settled.






Looking forward to our next meeting -- hopefully in person -- on 17 July 2022 in Floyd, Va.!
