He entered over 1,000 acres of land, giving to each of his children 120 acres of prairie, and twenty acres of timber land. He has been a hard-working man, and has assisted materially in the development of his township. Mr. LUCAS was born in Maryland, but when seven years of age was taken to Ohio, where he was reared. He married Margaret CARSON, and to them were born eleven children, seven of whom came to Iowa with the parents, and one was born in Ringgold County. These are - Elizabeth, Emeline, Sarah, Margaret (deceased), William L., Elreta, Oscar and Byron. Mr. LUCAS died February 2, 1876, aged seventy-six years.
