There are many unreadable stones, and broken stones piled in the corner of the cemetery. At some point in the future I hope to return and clean up the cemetery and find more readable stones. Many of these people were my husbands ancestors. I would love to hear from anyone who finds a relative in the Lucas Cemetery.
