a. Note:   My 1st cousin 6 times removed. - - - - - William Lucas was a captain in Revolutionary War. DAR records indicate he is buried in Pike County, Ohio. He moved to Scioto County, OH, about 1800.
William Lucas, like his brothers Edward and Robert, was a revolutionary war soldier. During this conflict, he enlisted on February 13, 1777, for three years and served as a private in Captain Nathaniel Welch's Company in the 2nd Virginia Regiment. This company (also known as Captain Philip Taliaferro's Company) was commanded at different times by Colonel William Brant (or Brent) in 1778 and later by Colonel Gregory Smith. William also served as a Lieutenant in Captain William Morgan's Company. His name last appears on the muster roll in November, 1779. Both before and after the war, William served as a Captain with the Virginia Border Guards, ostensibly organized to control hostile indians. The comment was made that William was, "... known to his companions-in-arms as one of the bravest of the brave." After recovering from wounds received at Laurel Hill in western Virginia, William was "...a bitter enemy of the Indians and one of their most relentless opponents." After the war, William built his home at Linden Spring on Rattlesnake Run near his father, Edward's, home, Cold Spring, in Berkeley (formerly Frederick) County, West Virginia. But in 1798, William moved his family by flatboat to Scioto county, Ohio, where, in recognition of his wartime military service, he received a land warrant from the Government. On that land in 1819 William's son, John Lucas, founded the town of Lucasville. In 1800 William and Susannah (his wife) moved to Adams County, Northwest Territory, Ohio, where later that year he voted for Thomas Jefferson as president. He later supported Martin Van Buren for the same office. After his death, William was interred with full military honors at Lucasville, next to his wife, Susannah. The inscription on his monument reads, "Captain William Lucas died July 1814 in the 72nd year of his life. A Revolutionary War Soldier. Susannah Lucas, his wife, departed this life May 1809, age 64." William's will, dated June 4, 1813, is recorded in the Probate Court, Portsmouth, Ohio, Will Book A, p. 47. Stevson states that, according to the "Dictionary of American Biography" (Vol. VI, p. 87,) William and his family were considered wealthy. (Notes from Shera Pryne-Thompson, edited by James B. Lindsley 09 April 1999, with additions from Jack Stockman, Clinkenbeard researcher)
