Lucas, Ohio looks like it was named after http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Lucas_%28governor%29
It doesn't look like Robert Lucas (born 1781) has a profile on geni yet.

I can't imagine anyone with a yearning for real freedom wanting to stay there . According to reports Rhode Island was a little bit better . But not much .
