Children of Samuel and Monica (Kennedy) Luckett

From the MD 400 Bio on Luckett (http://msa.maryland.gov/megafile/msa/speccol/sc3500/sc3520/016800/016818/html/16818bio.html). Death date is approximate.

Despite his injuries and his family--Luckett had married a woman named Monica Kennedy sometime before he left for war in 1776--he returned to military service after only a few months, this time as an officer. In the summer of 1780, Maryland raised what it called the Regiment Extraordinary, designed to help alleviate the Continental Army's severe manpower shortage. Desperate for any available men, the state filled with regiment with "Deserters...Men left at the Hospitals [and] a few Recruited for the old Regiments." Luckett was among the latter group, and as an experienced soldier he was made first an ensign, and later a lieutenant. The regiment was slow to form, and by October it was still short of men and supplies. Portions of the regiment did fight a small battle with the British near Fort Washington, Maryland that fall, and the men eventually marched to join the main body of the army in December 1780. Arriving in North Carolina, the Regiment Extraordinary faced organizational challenges and was disbanded in March 1781. Some of the men were incorporated into the Second Maryland Regiment. Many of the officers resigned from the army, however, since they were not able to join the Second Maryland and retain their rank. Luckett was probably among those who left the army and returned home.

Luckett and his wife Monica had two children together, William and Francis H., before her death in the 1780s.
