  • Notes 
    • Bibliographic Information: Newman, Harry W. The Lucketts of Portobacco. Washington, D.C.: Harry Wright Newman, 1938

      William Rhody Luckett on October 29, 1748 {Linda Reno - This is a typo, should be 1768}, deeded to Samuel Hanson, Jr., "St. Patrick's Hills", at which time Mary Anne, his wife, waived her third.

      mm note: therefore, William Rhody Luckett was born before 1748 and probably a son of Thomas Hussey Luckett and his 2nd wife Eleanor, becuase he named a daughter Eleanor.
