Lucinda was born in Mifflin County, PA to James Scadden Blaine and Elizabeth Lewis. James was the son of immigrant James Blaine and his second wife, Elizabeth Carskadden, daughter of immigrant George, who was next-door neighbor to the elder James. All of the group were Covenanter Presbyterians.
Lucinda's son James Blaine Patterson, daughter Isabelle Patterson Eldridge, son-in-law Myron Eldridge and son-in-law Henry L. Irvine (husband of daughter Henrietta) are all buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Her husband, in this cemetery with Lucinda and other of their children, was a Civil War veteran.
In addition to children showing the the links, Lucinda and Robert Patterson had daughters Mary, Emma and an unnamed baby of unknown gender.
After moving from Harrisburg PA to the District of Columbia as a widow in the 1880s, Lucinda ran a boarding house.
Lucinda's maternal grandfather was Gen. William Lewis, for whom the town of Lewistown PA is named. He was an iron master of Hope Furnace. His wife was Elizabeth Jones, whose father's family descended from the Welsh founders of Bangor Episcopal Church in Lancaster County PA and old St. David's Episcopal Church in Delaware County PA. The immigrating Joneses were Welsh Quakers, all of whom became baptist except for daughter Ann whose line established the Episcopal churches.
Lucinda's father, James Scadden Blaine, ran the furnace with his father-in-law Lewis and later co-inherited the business with other another son-in-law of the "General." It is unclear where that nickname came from. Lewis did serve as a young man, but not as a military general at that time.
