African Amer. Lucas/Locas Family from Wilson, NC

My Grandmother, Ernestine High's family lived in Wilson (Old Fields), NC from 1875 - 1930s. Her mother's maiden name is Lucas (or Locus/Locust based on various Census') and interestingly enough she eventually married a Lucas (whose family is from Virginia). I've not encountered too many African American Lucas' in my search on Ancestry.com and would love to connect with potential family members to get more information on the origins of the Lucas (when/if were they slaves, where did they come from and which families did the work for?) family.

My dad also remembers some cousins named Blackwell who might also be related to the family. After a bit of research, I find Blackwells and Highs and (and Lucas' living nearby) living near each other and working as hirelings in the 1860s for Highs and Eatmons.

Please message me on Ancestry.com (my member name is Dabrooksiegurl) or email me at dabrooksiegurl@msn.com, if you'd like to connect. Thanks!
