      1880 CENSUS shows Andrew J. Lucas of Downs, McLean Illnois age 61 with wife Elizabeth 61. Says father was born in Georgia
      A. J. LUCAS, whose parents were among the early pioneers of Illinois, came to McLean County with his parents when a child of three years old, in 1823. He has been engaged in farming pursuits the greater part of his life, but is now retired from active labor and enjoying the comforts of a pleasant and attractive home, located at No. 615 East Walnut street, Bloomington.
      Mr. Lucas was born in White County, this State, Nov. 7, 1818, his parents being William and Gooden (Hendrix) Lucas, natives respectively of Georgia and England. His father was a farmer by occupation, and became a resident of McLean County in 1823, settling three miles south of Bloomington. He there purchased 240 acres of land, built a log cabin and opened up a fine farm, upon which, with his wife and family, he spent the remainder of his days. The parental household included ten children, three now living: A. J., our subject; Benjamin L., and Dorcas, Mrs. Reeder.
      Young Lucas was reared to farming pursuits, received a fair education, and remained with his parents until twenty-one years old. Four years later he married, and was given forty acres of the old homestead. He occupied this two years, then removed to LaFayette, Ind., where he stopped, however, but a short time. He then returned and rented land three years in McLean County, and afterward purchased forty acres four miles south of Bloomington. He lived upon this four years, and then purchased 172 acres in Martin Township; this was partly improved. After two years he sold out and rented land in the Grove for three years. He then purchased sixty-five acres, which he cultivated until 1879, and then traded it for 220 acres in Randolph and Downs Townships, upon which he lived until 1886, when he practically abandoned farming and moved into the city.
      Our subject was married on the 28th of December, 1843, to Miss Elizabeth Simmons, a native of Virginia, and the daughter of Ephraim and Elizabeth (Calloway) Simmons. Of this union there were born six children, only two now living: Wilbur E. married Lydia A. Bay, and they have three children Roy, Pearl and Ira; Benjamin W. married M. B. Rhodes, and they have five children Hugh, Charles, Abbie, Evva and Edith; W. E. lives with his father, and has always followed farming.
      Mr. Lucas is Republican in politics, and is a man whose opinions are held in high respect in his community. He has held the offices of Road Commissioner and School Director, and his sons are men of note and reliable and valued citizens, also having been connected with the School Board.
