|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Huntington County, Indiana, and have traced my family history extensively in that area and in Grant County, Indiana. I now live in Vancouver, Canada, but love to visit cemeteries and take photos in the above mentioned counties whenever I am home to Indiana to visit. |
Most photos I have contributed are of people of no relation to me, as I love to go to a cemetery and start taking photos of as many graves as I have time for, but surnames that are connected to my family tree would be Oxley, Ferguson, Roberts, Beekman, Bole, Wiley, and Beal, to name just a few.

|Geoffrey Knapp||Francis Lucas|
Thanks for maintaining many graves as you are. I noticed that you are maintaining Francis Lucas in Deerfield Cemetery. His headstone was part of the old cemetery and was moved to a section of the present cemetery. I could not find his headstone in 1992 unfortunately.
The reason I am writing is to let you know that Francis Lucas death date is 11 May 1843. I have seen his death date of 1845 and 1846 in two different locations. I though have located a newspaper death announcement for Warren County (The Western Star) for Francis Lucas for 11 May 1843. A worn '3' could be misread for a '5' or '6'.
Since no headstone can be found, I feel like this should read accurately.
