Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 368, Monon Township, White County, Indiana

"ALLEN W. LUCUS was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, March 2, 1853, and is a son of LUTHER and CATHERINE M. (GILLESPIE) LUCUS, the former a native of Ross County, Ohio, the latter of Bath County, Virginia. Both emigrated to Tippecanoe County in the early days, and afterward removed to Pulaski County, where his father engaged in farming for seven years; thence he removed to this county and 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 February 26, 1874, he was married to MARTHA L. FISHER, born January 21, 1854, daughter of JONAS and EMELINE (HASTINGS) FISHER, to which union succeeded four children - MONTROIT, RUTHERFORD, LUTHER and CLARA. After his father's death, MR. LUCUS moved near Brookston, where he farmed some time, but returned to the homestead, where he now resides. He is a general farmer, but gives some attention to stock. He is a Republican and a respected citizen."
