Thomas Lucas and wife Sarah Ann Lucas and family came to Oregon from Nebraska in May 1903. They first stopped in Hood River and almost settled there, but came on down to Troutdale in July and lived on the Dressel place for one year. They then bought the places known as the Ferrington and Thornfeldt properties and remodeled the house and farmed until his death in April 1919. Mrs. Lucas died in October 1931.

Flora and Ellen, the two daughters living at Hood River, preceded their parents to Oregon to work in the fruit. Ellen, know as Nellie, married Lincoln Davies in 1905 and lived in Hood River before moving to Springdale. Flora married Claude Cuddeford in 1904 and made her home in Hood River. Vern Lucas married Laura Canzler in April 1915 and lived in Springdale until his death in 1945; Ruth, the next daughter, married Fred Wheeler in 1909 and also lived in Hood River.
