The INSSAR records show that Francis Lucas is buried in a cemetery South of Owensville. That Is virtually impossible given his death date of 14 December 1784, as the Owensville area was uninhabited except by indians during that time period. The earliest settlers in the Owensville area were around 1815.

We know that Fielding Lucas who died in 1841 is buried in a small plot south of Owensville known as "Lucas Burying Ground". Fielding is believed to be the son of Francis Lucas Jr., son of Francis Lucas.

It is a possibility that Francis Lucas Jr. may be buried there, but highly unlikely that Francis Sr. is there.
