No, Thomas Lucas was born in Donegal, the father of James who was the father of William. There is a record of a Thomas Lucas serving in the American Revolution in the 29th Lower Battalion in 1777. Anecdotally this is my ancestor. William was born in the US around 1800. The William that we have information on served in the American Civil War from September 10, 1861 to June 28, 1865, was injured during the war, was a Corporal serving with Cole's Cavalry in the First Regiment Potomac Home Brigade Cavalry, Company B, and died sometime after the war before 1870. That is the only solid piece of data we have, from a book on the history and Roster of Maryland Volunteers in the Civil War.
