GUNN, LUCAS

Lew Macfarlane Sun Sep 5 16:59:14 1999
Sitting here in Seattle trying to help my wife track down some ancestors...specifically, ggf Joseph Gunn, born Ontario c. 1855, married to Mary Ann Auman in Breckenridge, MN, date unknown. We don't know much about Joseph's life in Breckenridge but he apparently was prominent--known in the family, at least, as the "King of Breckenridge" and was either a U.S. or state Senator. He and his wife later moved to California where he died at Berkeley in (we believe) 1922.
The Gunns had a daughter, my wife's grandmother, Irene Marguerite Gunn Lucas, born in Breckenridge on (we believe) May 23, 1893. She later married Leonard Jacob Lucas from Ely, MN and most of the Lucases moved west to California. Other siblings included William, Lucy, Ernest, and at least one other.
