Surnames: Luce
My grandfather was William E. Luce from Venango County, Western Pennsylvania, born circa 1875, died 1934. Settled in the Pittsburgh, PA area. His sons were William Harold Luce (my father), born Braddock, PA 1893, died Munhall, PA 1978, and Laurence Luce. Laurence had a daughter, Dorothy Luce Thompson who lived in the Pittsburgh area. I believe she is deceased since I haven't been able to track her down.
Any info would be appreciated on this or pre-1700 history.

Don--I am looking for information on an Ellis Luce born abt 1857. He married Wealtha Richardson and they lived in the Black Ash area of Crawford Co, Pa. They had 2 daughters, Nellie Mae Luce (my gggm) and Magdelene Luce. If this is related to your line, I would greatly appreciate any information you might have. Thanks. Jill (NellieLuce@aol.com)

Jill,

I'm sorry I don't have anything going back that far. My branch of the family left no family records, and by the time I got interested, all the sources of information were dead. I don't even know the name of my great grandfather on the Luce side. I went to the Venango County courthouse ( Franklin, PA) to look at their records, and there were some Luces in there, but none I could tie to my family. The records were not kept prior to about 1880. There are birth and death records kept by the State of PA at their facility in New Castle, PA. I have not been there yet to check them out.
Good luck, and if you come up with something, please let me know.

Don

I don't have any direct connction for you, but if you ever get back any further and find a connection with my Luce's, let me know. Mine came from NY but were in PA in the early 1840's. There is a Burgess Luce who is found early on in NY then in some of the PA census' material. I'm following up on that.

Here's mine, some of the children were born in PA, where I don't know yet.

Hi, my mother was a Luce. I have the line back to England. Henry Luce settled in Martha's Vineyard MA early 1600's and from him came all the Luces in the US. Now if you want some info you will have to tell me where you want to start and stop. Maybe you only want the PA ones. Anyway you can email me with your questions.

There is John LUCE, b-1756, d-1819, who served in the navy dirung the Revelutionary War. His wife was Hepsabah and she received a pention from the Navy when John died.

We belive from that marriage come Francis LUCE b-1793, who married Polly. I do onot know Polly's maiden name or birth date.

If you have any information on these people, please let me know

Hi Connie,
Where did you find this info. Others think that Archelaus was the son of Abraham Luce b. abt. 1765 and Abigail (unknown). Abraham's father being Eleazer. Eleazer's father being Henry. Henry's father being Robert, son of Henry Luce b. abt. 1640. Do you have the Luce book written by Martha McCourt? and if so, who is Abram's father?
Thanks, Elaine
