Lucas - Samuel - family

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Review, April 23 1881

In the Chippewa (Minn) Leader, of March 5, we find the  statement of the terrible affliction of the family of Mr. Samuel  Lucas. He had a family of 9 children, one of which took down with  diptheria, and within 3 or 4 days the whole family of children  were taken down with the same diease. In one week six of the  children were dead, the youngest aged 3 years dying on Monday  night and the eldest, a young lady of 20, on Friday. The six  children were buried in one grave. Mr. Lucas is well known in  this city, his wife being a niece of David and James Lee. - kbz
