Looking for pedigree of Madison Haines Lucas, b @ 1820 in Giles Co. Va In some places, his mother is listed as Susanna Lucas and that she was married to Charles Straley in 1835-all in Giles County. I have Susanna's death as 1836. Her Lucas family is one of the New River, VA families. Madison Haines Lucas had three wives: Malinda Rock, with whom he had 5 children, Nancy Moser, no children and Mary Jane Link,with whom he had six children. They migrated to Lincoln County, WV. Any info would be appreciated.

Madison Haines Lucas was the son of Susanna Lucas who was the daughter of Parker Lucas and Margaret Price. He was not related to Charles Straley. Susanna and Charles were married Nov. 28, 1835. In August 1836, at the age of 16, Madison appeared in court and with the courts consent, choose Philip Lybrook as his guardian. It's possible he was going to apprentice under Philip, however I don't know that for a fact. According to family, he was a blacksmith by trade. Also, though it hasn't or can't be proven, according to my great aunt who was Madison's great granddaughter, Madison's father was a Hale. Madison was born Mar. 28, 1820 and died Apr. 28, 1894.

Susanna died around 1842, give or take. In a letter by Philip Lybrook, dated Feb. 17, 1843, he had written to his brother Henley Lybrook and talked about a fever hitting the area and names some of those in his neighborhood who had died, among them was listed Susanna Straley.

Madison and most of his family moved to Lincoln County in 1870, settling nearest to Myra. My family line from Madison has remained near that same area clear up to now. Madison was my great great great grandfather. My line comes down through his son Parker to Henry Rock to Chauncey Rock to Chauncey L (my dad). If you look at, you can find the memorial's with headstone photo's and family links for Madison, Henry, and Chauncey Rock Lucas.

I'll be happy to help if I can with any other questions you may have. You can e-mail me directly at
