We are looking for the story.
The grave marker is here, 44 Jason Lucas Memorial Rd., Methow, Washington.
We do not know who put the brass headstone marker here, but the info on the marker concerning his Civil War militery service is incorrect. Wagoner Private Jason Lucas was in the 154th Illinois Infantry Regiment, not the 15th Regiment, for 3 months and 20 days, from the end of February until being released on furlough in June, 1985, due to a disabling condition. The 154th Infantry Regiment was Mustered Out and disbanded in September, 1985.
Did he have siblings?
We replaced the cattle fencing, the rusty, bent, slack, and twisted metal T-posts and barbed wire, with rows of rocks, Scottish style, as Jason's Mother and Father were Scottish, according to the birth records.
We search for more info and living relatives. Help if you are able.
Meanwhile, thinking on it all, I enter this and invite responses.
My name is Robert Thomas, USMC, Ret'd., PDRL
