Benedict "One Eye" Lucas
I can well understand all this confusion on the Civil War soldier Benedict "One Eye" Lucas as he is my husband's cousin. My husband's grandfather is Benedict Maurice "Morris" Lucas who was born in Breckinridge County 12 Jan 1844. His parents were Benedict Lucas (1800-1876) and Martha "Patsy Ann" Lucas (1815-1860) of Breckinridge County. Benedict "Morris" Lucas was baptized 4 Mar 1844 in Meade Co, KY at St. Theresa Catholic Church. I have the baptismal record (photo copy) from the church. Morris married Elizabeth Quiggins (19 Jan 1845-4 Mar 1933) of Breckinridge County and her parents were Richard Quiggins (1822-?) and Sarah J. Cathcart(1823-?) both of Breckinridge County. Morris and Elizabeth Quiggins were married maybe in the late 1860's as no record is found in Grayson or Breckinridge County. Morris was in the 27th Infantry Kentucky during the Civil War. His cousin Benedict "One Eye" Lucas was in the Civil War with the Iowa Infantry as he lived near the Iowa/MO border at that time. "One Eye" never married Elizabeth Quiggins. "One Eye" Lucas had 3 wives, one was Susan Hulon Turley, second wife, name unknown, was over near Iowa/MO when "One Eye' lived and she left during the Civil War never to be seen again, and his 3rd wife was Louisa Wilkins from Edmonson County, KY. One Eye Lucas is buried next to Louisa Wilkins. One Eye lost his eye in the Civil War. This is very confusing. It took me a year to get it all straight. It has been proven with the Son's of the American Revolution now. My husband had quite a time with this mix. I do not know where Benedict "Morris" Lucas is buried but I suspect Hanging Rock Church Cem. in Grayson County, KY where his wife Elizabeth Quiggins is buried with no marker. The photo is of Benedict "One Eye" Lucas. There is no photo of Benedict "Morris" Lucas. I just do not know why the Lucas families named their sons Benedict knowing there were others in the area with the same name.

Benedict Lucas (Memorial #7767579)
The memorial for Benedict Lucas (Memorial #7767579) indicates that he was married to 3 wives.

However, two different wives were having children by a Benedict Lucas concurrently.

There are 1880 census records for Benedict Lucas + Elizabeth Quiggens and Benedict Lucas + Susan Turley but both households were in Hudsonville in Breckinridge County.

Is this really the same Benedict Lucas?

Based on the 1900 census record for Benedict Lucas + Louisa Jane Wilkins, it appears that neither John Henry nor his brother, Elmer, were sons of any Benedict Lucas. Their surname is listed as Williams, and the marriage date for Benedict Lucas + Louisa Jane Wilkins is shown as circa 1898 after both were born. Benedict Lucas must have been the 2nd marriage for Louisa Jane Wilkins

Thanks in advance.
