Francis McCurdy is a son of John McCurdy and Rhoda Lucas. Rhoda was born in Warren Co., OH in 1807 to Francis Lucas and Christena Keever. John & Rhoda married in Warren Co., OH in Aug 1826 and moved to LaPorte Co. about 1835. Besides son Francis, I have Mary married to a William Bowman, Rebecca Jane, Ellen, Christiana, George, Josephine, John N. (George was killed in the Civil War.)
I am descended from Rhoda (Lucas) McCurdy's brother, George Lucas who moved to La Porte Co. in 1864.
I don't have anything more on Francis. I believe John N. is written up in the Porter Co's County History book published in the late 1800's. I was in contact with a Marilyn who passed away but was a descendant of Mary McCurdy and William Bowman.
