Welcome to Lucas County, Ohio

    Lucas Co., OH

     The story of the "Ugly Duckling" that turns into a beautiful swan is well known to most. Lucas County's history is a wonderful comparison to this old story. Once an area of swamps and diseases, it evolved into an area that was so valuable that it caused an actual war to break out. The Toledo War was a dispute over whether Michigan or Ohio had rights to the narrow strip of land. Both had in their possession a map which showed that their state was the rightful owner. Ohio won and quickly organized Lucas County to tighten its claim of the area and secure jurisdiction. The newly appointed court felt a strong need to hold its first session and it did so in the middle of the night. That "night court" made Lucas County the only Ohio county that began its business at 2:00 A.M. Named after Robert Lucas who was the Governor of Ohio in 1835 when it was  formed on June 20th, Lucas County was one of the last areas to be developed in the state. 

Of course, it was our ancestors that made this history and we search endlessly to find information about them or just plain find them! By viewing the links on this page, I hope that you know a little more about your Lucas County ancestors than you did prior to stopping by. Contributions of data and look-ups are done voluntarily by fellow genealogists with big hearts. Please make it a habit to return the favor to someone else in in need of information from your area when an item that you have requested is found.
