John Bennington Lucas
Hello David,
I am the great-great granddaughter of John Bennington Lucas. My grandfather William Edgar Lucas born April 13, 1880 and died April 4, 1953 in Monroe County, Indiana in Monoroe Co. William Edgar married Nancy Florence Deckard on November 5, 1903 in Monroe County they were the parents of 10 children. Freddie Lee Lucas their son was my father. He was born January 31, 1923 in Monroe County and died March 15, 2002 in Monroe Co. He married Patricia Alice Colbert -aka- Laura Alice Chandler on July 5, 1947 in Marion County, Indiana. Patricia was born August 22, 1927 in Monroe County, Indiana and died on May 4, 1989 in Monroe County. She was the the birth child of Morris J Chandler and Toulah Laverne Clay. Toulah died when mom was less than two years old and Morris placed her in foster care of Josh and Ora Colbert. They changed her name although no legal steps were taken. Patricia legally changed her name after she graduated from high school. Judith E Lucas Hudson

RE: Conney Anderson Butcher bur. Bold Cemetery
Conney Anderson Butcher's mother was Mary Reen Anderson Kern, buried in the Bold/Strain Cemetery. Her father, Thomas Anderson died in Lawrence Co, IN in 1825. Shortly after his death, Mary Reen Anderson married Adam Kern. I have not located Thomas Anderson's grave but it could possibly be unmarked and in the Anderson Cemetery, Lawrence County, IN just west of Hwy 37 near Guthrie.

Conney's brother, Jesse Anderson (1788-1855) is my 4th great-grandfather and was married to Jane Miller Anderson. They moved to Indiana from Claiborne/Grainger Counties in Tennessee. Both Jesse and Jane Anderson are buried on our family's farm in the Brown Cemetery (Franklin, Putnam, IN) (see In the Brown Cemetery are also descendants of John Whitted. I am unsure whether John was married to Hannah Anderson Whitted, Jesse and Conney's sister.

Children of Daniel Butcher (1794-1862)
I believe that the last two children of this Daniel md. Conney Anderson - Mary Butcher (1854-1855) and Nelson Butcher (1861-1862) - belong to Daniel's son Daniel Butcher (1825-1904) based upon their birth dates and the transcription of the tombstone engraving. I, too, am a 3XG-GS of good 'ol Barnabus!

Butcher Family
I assume from looking at Daniel Butcher's site, that you must be related to the Butcher Family.

I am related to the Morgan side. My great-great grandmother was Lydia Morgan. Lydia's parents were Elijah & Matilda Goodwin Morgan. They had 4 children: William Seth, Nancy M., Lydia & Lucinda.

Nancy M. was married to Paris A. Butcher. The dates for Paris C. somewhat match the birth year for Paris A. - 1932.

I'm assuming we are talking about the same family. Do you have any info regarding Paris A. & Paris C.?

RE: King A. Deckard
Hi David,

Thanks for the information. As far as you remember, King is buried at the Allens Creek Cemetery on Roberts Road, near the intersection of Allens Creek and Roberts? It's much smaller than the Allens Creek Cemetery closer to SR446 and Allens Creek Road. The one closer to SR446 appears to be much older and it covers a much larger area than the one near Allens Creek and Roberts. And, as far as you remember, he had a marker? I will check with the library as well. King was in the 33rd Indiana Infantry and I want to get a picture of his stone for my website on the 33rd. I know nothing about snakes, except that I don't like them. I couldn't tell a dangerous snake from a harmless one - as far as I'm concerned they're all dangerous, ha ha.

King A. Deckard
Hi David,

I tried to find the stone today for King A. Deckard and couldn't find anything. Do you have any additional information on him that might help me locate his place of burial? I actually walked two Allens Creek Cemeteries. I ran into about a three-foot long black snake at one of them. That was a little scary, ha ha! Thanks!

RE: Samuel Foster
No I've not been there. I will be in the area this July. I'm going to spend a day in Coshocton Co. I will look for Samuel's wives.

Was there no headstone for Samuel's wife Achsah Randles Williams Foster nearby? She died in 1888.

Thanks for the photo of Samuel!

John Bennington Lucas

I am Randy Lucas. My father was Paul Wayne Lucas. His father was Samuel Perry Lucas. John Bennington Lucas is my great grandfather. Thank you for this site. My grandfather died when I was little so I never really got to know anything about his family. My father never mentioned his grandfather even though he lived well into his childhood. Martha Ann Butcher died shortly after giving birth to Daniel, when my grandfather was only two, but I have gathered the family basically fell apart at that point. Any information you can provide to me would be appreciated.
