Re: Black persons in early Washington County, Penn

Thank you Jane. I thought I was seeing the Lucas connection to the Heatons but wasn't quite sure it was the same family.

I have a couple of questions that you might have the answer to.

Can you tell me how the Lucas brothers came by their surname? I have seen the Lucas surnname in connection with the Hughes surname in business together (distillery?) in Greene County.

Also, do you know if this Mary Dodd is the same person as Mary Ashbook Dodd who was first married to Thomas Ashbrook and second to John Dodd? And the same Mary Dodd who is listed in the Washington County Slave register? If so these families are also related to Dorsey Pentecost who was another Slave owner in Washington County.

John Dodd registered 1 slave in 1793. His widow, Mary Dodd, registered 9 slaves between 1795 and 1815, several of whom were names as the children of Lydia. Lydia,"slave for life" was not registered, just the children born to her. Maybe I am posting this part of the information on the wrong board.
