Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 13, 1808
Norfolk
Litchfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 1886
Port Huron
St. Clair County
Michigan, USA

Lucius was one of the first 13 settlers in Port Huron. He traveled west from Ct. and sold clocks. He met met Julia in Ohio -- they fell in love and he knew he wanted to settle down with her but she was too young. So he made his way north to Port Huron (via a boat)... made a homestead and went back for her. Beatrice told the story as she heard if from her father. It took him almost 3 years to settle and go back for her.

He was a teacher and firmly believed in education. He was also a farmer.

The farm house he built still stands today (I believe Water Street) in 2011, although not in the family.

Lucius and Anna Had 13 Children -- some still born that were buried by the black river. Julia P. was their first child and Fred H. was their last.

headstone reads: Died Aged 77 Years & 2 Months
