In my own mind, I always interpeted that it might be something like this "Lucas Buring Ground". South of Owensville, Indiana!I would like to explore this!
Here is one ofmy son's findings giving our Rev. War. Patriot & wife along with their children's names, which was found in the Preble County, Ohio Library, where we stopped enroute to a Mendenhall Family Reunion, Richmond, IN in August 2005:In Indiana, our early settlers includedFOSTER, LUCAS, MOORE, MENDENHALL, WIGGINS.

Francis Lucas had the pension for 2 years; however, he was denied futher payments as he had too many assets.From research, I know this Francis, the Patriot, had settled his father's estate in Virignia, before the family migrated to Indiana.
There are 3 generations in a row, where our ancestors had the name of Francis:
1)Francis Lucas md. Elizabeth ________unk;left a will, VA;
2)Francis Lucas, the Rev. War Patriot of Virginia, md Fanny;
3)Francis Lucas, Jrage 9 in 1820 (not postive as to birth State.).
Our own family records show that Francis Lucus, Jr md Johanna Wiggins -- their marriage is listed in "Indiana Marriages".Their daughter, Frances Viola Lucas, b. IL md. Hamilton Foster in IA; and my mother, Frances Viola Wolff, TX>WA/OR is a namesake of her Grandmother -- and then there is me, Violet.(My mother says:"Francis/Frances = his/hers" as to order in spelling!
We have a lot of material, including a Census, which has Francis Lucas as well as Fielding & other Lucas names (by SOUNDEX method) in Gibson Co., IN (as I recall, it was the 1820 Census).
