Lucas, NY, NJ, MA
I have Joseph Lucas b. 1826 married to Emma b. 1829 Lucas in the 1860 New York Census.Emma shows her father born in NY and mother born in Delaware.Their children are Laura – b.1853, Archibald- b.1858, and William- b. 1859
Further census’s possibly show Laura living in the Hudson, NJ area from 1870 forward and NY,NY in 1860 not confirmed by any other than ancestry teaser data.
Archibald M. Lucas married Clara L. and lived in Hudson, NJ from 1870 thru 1930 according to ancestry teaser.
William Clinton Lucas Sr. born in NY, is shown living with his mother Emma in 1880 in Hudson, NJ.She is listed as divorced; he is a 20yr old salesman.He marries Alice Mae Holden and dies in 1932 Boston, MA
William and Alice have a child William Clinton Lucas Jr. born 1896 Jersey City NJ.
William Clinton Lucas Jr.marries Alice Eyeline Hervieux and dies 7/23/1974 in Dorchester Ma.The 1940 Boston census #15-168 page 8 shows William Clinton Lucas Jr. as a divorced lodger age 43 born in NJ.
William and Alice Evelyn Hervieux have the following children: Ernestine Evelyn 1918, William 1920, David 1920 and Jeanne 1925.Ernestine and Jeanne are found in the 1940 census, living with their mother and her second husband last name Lynch in Springfield, MA.
William goes on to marry up to three more times.
I am looking for any information that tells me where to look for Joseph and Emma and further on back.I’m also interested in any family information on Archie and Clara, or Laura and their families.I have heard the term Black Irish associated with this family line, also possibilities of native blood at some point, but have no real information without being able to access records and dig deeper.
