"Reverend J. W. Lucas, a graduate of Wake Forest, was born near Averysboro, N. C. in *1850, and was ordained in 1872. For over a quarter of a century, he served as a Free Will Baptist minister and as an educator in East Tennessee. Most of this time he was affiliated with the Union Association. He served as principal of high schools at Parrotsville, Midway, and elsewhere. He succeeded Brother Woolsey as pastor of the Woolsey College Church. His work at the college both as teacher and as pastor was outstanding in quality. Although an extremely able man, he did not take with the general public as well as many less qualified persons; He was in attendance at the General Conference at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, 1901 and again along with Dr. T. H. Woolsey at Hillsdale, Michigan in 1904." --from One Hundred Years of Paul Woolsey's Free Will Baptist Family, pub. 1949.
