Death: unknown
Erie County

William was the eldest son of Daniel and Martha (Brown) Lucas and was born February 17, 1787 at Colrain, Franklin County, Massachusetts on the family farm. When a small boy he went with his parents to Cazenovia, Madison County, New York in the locality called "Pumpkinn Hollow" (Holler). It was at Stockbridge, New York. From there he went to Conquest, Cayuga County, New York. William had eight brothers and sisters: Andrew, Margaret, Elmena, Caroline, Amanda (my great-great grandmother), Daniel Lucas Jr., Archibald and Eleanor. He studied to be a doctor in Buffalo, New York. William married Charlotte Graves. Very little is known about Charlotte's parents and siblings. It is known that Charlotte and William had at least four children: Lorenzo Dow (born at Cayuga County), Volney, Stephan and a daughter (name unidentified but married a man named Charles Miller). They may have had more than four children but difficult to verify. He is said to have been maried twice, and that Lorenzo belonged to his first wife. He is said to have settled near Sandusky, Erie County, Ohio in 1845. He became noted in Western New York for his introduction and use of the steambox and hemlock boughs for the cure of "spotted fever." He was a soldier and served during the War of 1812 in the Battle of Erie. Where and when he died has not been determined.
