Charles Davis Lucas had three wives with Nancy as their first name. The family kidded him about this and his reply was "When I talk in my sleep I don't want my last wife to get mad at me so I always marry a Nancy. Therefore, she has no way of telling which wife I'm talking about". Charlie had 13 children with his 3 wives.

(11), and David K. (7). Also in the household is Henrietta Walters (18-step daughter) and C. J. Lucass (53-female). Next door is Nancy Lucass (47-widow) with children Jno. H. (24), Laura V. (21), and Zora B. (14) and then James C. (32) and Nannie A. (25) Lucass with children Linnie G. (2) and Edward B. (1). All individuals and their parents were born in Virginia except Charles D. Lucas mother, who is listed as born in New York. This appears to be a second marriage for Charles D. Lucas as well as his wife Nancy. Nancy has been married to a Walters. R. M. and James C.
