Lucius Mills, Sr. married Laura A. Kinne May 22, 1866 in Ypsilanti, Washtenaw Co., MI. They were the parents of Fredrick Eugene, Eva Winnifred, Lucius W. Mills, Jr., Rose T., Edward Philo, and Susan Isabel. Winnie, Lucius Jr., and Rose are buried near them.
Lucius' father had eight children and was a farmer. He and his wife brought their children to MI. The youngest ones were born there. It seemed each child chose a different ocunty or state to settle in. Lucius chose Ingham County. In Lansing, he began Mills Dry Goods. Eventually management was taken over by his son Fredrick who worked with his brother, Lucius Jr.. His grandson, Lucius Durfee ran the store until his retirement in 1953.
Lucius followed his wife's death five months later.
