      Died Aug 4th 1881, near Monon Chapel, White county, Indiana, Mrs. Catherine Lucas.
      Mrs. Lucas was born December 5, 1829 in Bath county, Virginia. She had been a resident of this county and of Monon neighborhood for quite a number of years. She was the widow of the late Luther Lucas who died a little over a year ago. She joined the M.E. church in early life and from the beginning of her religous [sic] career until its close in death her faith was ever strong and her character exemplary. For a year prior to her death her sufferings had been great and death coming was welcome. She died as only the Christian dies. Her last words were "tell all my friends, goodby".   W. Hall
      ------------
      Note from Holly: Her death notice, which was probably just a line, was in the 11 August edition, page 1 col 6, and her death was mentioned again in a "year in review" edition on 5 Jan 1882, pg 1, col 5. I don't have these; they can be obtained from Indiana State Library. In other obits, W. H. Hall was listed as Pastor, so was probably the local M.E. pastor.

    Notes 
    • "Monon Township, White County Indiana" pages 368, 369: [per Kim Mikels Wainscott]
      "Allen W. Lucas was born in Tippecanoe County on March 2, 1853 , and is the son of Luther Lucas and Catherine M. Gillespie, the former a native of Ross County, OH, the latter of Bath county, VA. Both emigrated to Tippecanoe County in the early days, and afterward removed to Pulaski County, Indiana, where his father engaged in farming for 7 years: thence he removed to this county and he purchased a farm on the Big Monon. Allen W. received what education he could during winter, and worked on the farm during the summer. On 2-26-1874, he was married to Martha L. Fisher, born 1-21-1854, daughter of Jonas Fisher and Emeline Hastings, to which union succeeded four children--Montroit, Rutherford, Luther, and Clara. After his father's death, Mr. Lucas moved near Brookston, IN, where he farmed some time, but returned to the homestead, where he now resides. He is a general farmer, but he gives attention to stock. He is a Republican and a respected citizen."
