Land Grant 429: Sent by mail to William Lucas, 18th August 1801 Thomas Jefferson, President of the United States of America, To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting:
Know ye, That in consideration of military service performed by William Darke (a Lieutenant Colonel for three years) to the United States, in the Virginia Line on Continental Establishment, and in pursuance of an Act of the Congress of the United States, passed on the tenth day of August in the year 1790, entituled "An Act to enable the Officers and Soldiers of the Virginia Line on Continental Establishment to obtain titles to certain lands lying north-west of the River Ohio, between the little Miami and Sciota; and another Act of the said Congress, passed on the 9th day of June in the year 1794, amendatory of the said Act, there is granted by the said United States unto William Lucas, Junior, assignee of the said William Darke a certain tract of land, containing Fifty seven acres situate between the little Miami and Sciota Rivers, north-west of the River Ohio, as by survey, bearing date the twentieth day of September in the year one thousand eight hundred and bounded and described as follows, to wit, Survey of Fifty seven acres of land on part of a Military Warrant No. 812 in favor of the said William Dark (the whole thereof being for six thousand six hundred sixty six and two thirds acres) on Sciota Brush Creek, a Branch of Sciota. Beginning at a Red oak, ash and Gum, upper corner on the Creek to Joseph Winlocks survey No. 2867, thence with his line North four degrees East forty eight pole, to a white oak, black oak and hickory in Winlocks line, thence North sixty seven degrees West ninety poles to two white oaks, in the line of Daniel Sanders survey No. 2447, thence with his line South three degrees east One hundred and fifty five poles crossing the Creek to a stake, thence north seventy degrees East seventy two pole to a stake thence North four degrees East forty eight poles crossing the Creek to the Beginning, with the appurtenances: To have and to hold the said tract of land, with the appurtenances unto the said William Lucas, Junior, and his heirs and assigns forever.
In witness whereof, the said Thomas Jefferson, President of the United States of America, hath caused the Seal of United States to be hereunto affixed, and signed the same with his hand in the City of Washington, the Eighteenth day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and one and of the Independence of the United States of America the twenty sixth.
Signed; Th. Jefferson
(William Darke, Esquire, was originally entitled to the bounty land granted by the within to William Lucas, Junior, who claims under the said William Darke. War Office, the 17th day of August 1801. Rt. Smith) - - - - - "The official roster of the soldiers of the American revolution buried in the state of Ohio" does not have a listing for any General William Lucas, but does have one for his father, Captain William Lucas in which he is mentioned as simply William Lucas - Gen., twin of Susannah Lucas. William Lucas Jr. received a land grant on 18 Aug 1801 for 57 acres of land in Ohio in an ammendement to the 9 June 1794 Act of Congress. So it is assumed he moved to Ohio after receiving the letter to claim his land. It appears William Lucas Jr. received the land grant because of service in the Virginia Line during the revolutionary war. Or, perhaps just because his father served in the Virginia Line. It is not very clear. Google does not have a reference for any General William Lucas.
