Samuel Brigham Lucas, 1844-1907, was born in Aylmer, Quebec. He married Amelia F. Aylwin, ?-1918, in 1871, and they had six children. He was appointed a farm instructor by the Indian Department in 1879, and he came to the Cree reserve at Hobbema, North-West Territories. His family joined him in 1884. He served as sub-agent at the Hobbema reserve from 1883 to 1885 when the Edmonton Agency was divided into two parts. He was then appointed agent for the new Hobbema Indian Agency. In 1885 the family took refuge in Edmonton when the Riel Rebellion spread to the Agency. Lucas was transferred to the Sarcee (Tsuut'ina) Indian Agency as agent, 1891-1897, then retired to land near Ponoka. His brother, Frank A. Lucas, married Margaret Morison in 1883, and had nine children. They came west in 1884, with S.B. Lucas' family, and homesteaded near Wetaskiwin. Their daughter, Isabell Maud, 1886-1963, trained as a nurse at the Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, Alberta, 1911-1914. She was Matron of the Wetaskiwin Hospital, 1914-1916, served overseas with the Nursing Corps during the First World War, did post-graduate work, and later worked as a travelling nurse for the Department of Indian Affairs, 1926-1945. She married Archie Smart in 1945. Thomas William Lucas, son of Sam and Amelia, farmed. Sam Lucas, 1897-1964, son of Frank and Margaret, took over the Wetaskiwin farm in 1927.
