      To the Honorable the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States - t
      he
      petition of Simon Lucas respectfully represents

      That your petitioner is a native of Gallaway Township, Gloucester Count
      y in the
      state of New Jersey, and has resided in that Township on the spot where h
      e now
      lives since he was ten years old. Your petitioner will be eighty two ye
      ars old
      on the seventh day of December 1832: and although, under the blessing o
      f God, he
      had hitherto been able to provide for himself by his own labour, now he i
      s
      admonished by his great age and feeble health that his ability to do so m
      ust
      soon cease. Indeed, owing to a severe injury from a recent fall, he is n
      ow
      unable to minister to his own wants and he therefore is induced to pres
      ent his
      claim for the benefits of the act of Congress passed on the 7th of June 1
      832,
      entitled "An act supplementary to the "act for the relief of certain su
      viving
      officers and soldiers of the revolution" to which your petitioner presu
      mes the
      following circumstances will entitle him.

      During the war of the Revolution, your petitioner was drafted as a mili
      tia man
      in the company of Capt. Zephaniah Steenman, forming part of the regimen
      t of Col.
      Richard Westcott, and served one month's tour of duty, under these offi
      cers at
      Amboy. Your petitioner was absent from his home on this occasion from f
      ive to
      six weeks.

      He afterwards volunteered in the company of Capt. Joseph Estell, belong
      ing to
      the regiment of Col. Elijah Clark, and served a second tour of duty of o
      e
      month, under these officers; during which time your petitioner was in t
      he battle
      of Trenton. Your petitioner's brother was a Lieutenant in the same comp
      any, and
      was wounded in a skirmish with the enemy at Petticoat bridge and he was
      afterward killed near Gloucester. The troops being dismissed at the end o
      f a
      month, your petitioner returned home. But the services of the militia b
      eing
      again invoked, your petitioner volunteered a second time under the same
      officers, and served a third tour of one month in --------ad of the win
      ter
      during which time he was stationed at Somerset in New Jersey. This serv
      ice being
      over, your petitioner as before returned to his home.

      Another appeal however was soon made to the militia of his native state a
      d your
      petitioner volunteered for a third time under the same captain, the reg
      iment
      being commanded by Col. Hilman, and the detachment by Genrl. Ellis. The t
      oops
      were stationed at Haddonfield; and on this occasion your petitioner con
      tinued in
      the service for one month, at the expiration of which time, they were d
      ismissed
      and your petitioner returned to his home. But the presence of the enemy i

      another direction soon called him again into the field.

      It was rumoured that the British had fitted out an expedition to burn a
      d
      destroy the buildings and property at Chesnut Neck, near the head of Eg
      g Harbour
      bay, to which place a number of prizes taken by our privateers had been s
      ent.
      The militia of the country turned out to defend the spot, and repel the e
      emy:
      your petitioner then acted as Lieutenant and was one of those who volun
      teered in
      this service. Preparation was made to receive the enemy, and a fort was b
      uilt on
      the neck, in the construction of which your petitioner laboured with hi
      s
      comrades. But orders were finally given (by whom your petitioner knows n
      ot) to
      abandon the works and retreat into the country. This was done and the B
      itish
      landed and burnt and destroyed the buildings and property. But after th
      e enemy
      had retired, it was still deemed necessary to maintain a guard at this p
      ost, and
      your petitioner was frequently out on this duty.

      On another occasion, the Militia were called out to drive a party of Re
      fugees
      from Tuckerton, and your petitioner, still holding the rank of Lieutena
      t, made
      on of the number dispatched on this duty. But the Refugees had disperse
      d before
      we reached the ground.

      Your petitioner was also frequently charged with the duty of escorting t
      o
      Philadelphia, prisoners brought into Egg Harbour river by privateers an
      d private
      armed vessels. He has a distinct recollection of having performed this d
      uty on
      three different occasions he believes that he did it oftener but at thi
      s
      distance of time, he cannot speak with confidence to more than three oc
      casions
      of this kind. Your petitioner has thus stated with as much accuracy as h
      e is
      able to do the prominent points and circumstances of his service both a
      s a
      private and a Lieutenant, in the militia during the Revolution. He was o
      ut as
      above set forth full four months, perhaps a little more, as a private, a
      d three
      of those four months he was a volunteer. At this distance of time he is n
      ot able
      to state with precision, the duration of each particular tour of duty w
      hich he
      performed, in that irregular and desultory service, in which he was eng
      aged as a
      Lieutenant, some of the particulars of which he has given above; and in
      tending
      to be strictly conscientious in his representation, he has abstained fr
      om
      attempting to state the length of time that he was out on each occasion
      .

      He can say with confidence however, that his irregular duty in the whol
      e,
      exceeded two months and that his whole term of service exceeded six mon
      ths. He
      begs leave to add, that the above statement must not be regarded as emb
      acing
      the whole amount of duty rendered by your petitioner during the Revolut
      ion.
      Feeling as he did, a deep interest in the struggle, he was always ready a
      t a
      moments notice, to render such services as might be in his power; and t
      he
      proximity of his residence to the theatre of the war, during a great pa
      t of the
      contest, and the number of Refugees and Tories in that section of the c
      ountry,
      gave full and frequent opportunity for exertion and enterprise on the p
      art of
      every Whig in it. Under these circumstances, your petitioner was more o
      less
      constantly on the alert, and by his activity and zeal, rendered himself
      particularly obnoxious to the enemy. As an evidence of it, your petitio
      er will
      mention, that his house was set on fire during his absence on duty by a p
      arty of
      the enemy, headed by a Tory and Refugee, of the name of Joseph Mulliner
      , who
      commanded a British boat well manned, and with which he did much mischi
      ef and
      inspired terror, by making incursions into the country bordering on Egg H
      arbour
      iver. Your petitioner with a party of men, was in pursuit of him at th
      e very
      time he fired petitioner's house. He was afterwards taken prisoner, tri
      ed and
      executed at Burlington.

      Under these circumstances your petitioner prays, that you will be pleas
      ed to
      direct such payment to be made to him, as he may be entitled to under t
      he
      provision so the act of the 7th of June 1832.

      Simon Lucas

      Personally came before me the subscriber presiding Judge of the Inferio
      court
      of common pleas in and for the county of Gloucester, Simon Lucas, the a
      bove
      amed applicant and on his solemn oath said the above declaration and s
      tatement
      is in all things Just and true according to the best of his knowledge a
      d belief
      and he further states he is old and infirm & unable to appear befor
      e the county

      John Clement

      The undersigned citizens of the United States respectfully represent to t
      he
      Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.

      That they are personally well acquainted with Simon Lucas of Galloway t
      ownship
      Gloucester County, State of new Jersey; many of them reside in the same
      eighbourhood with him, and have known him all their lives. They take a p
      eculiar
      pleasure in bearing testimony to the fact, that he is a man of the most
      exemplary life and piety, respected and beloved by all around him. He h
      as long
      been a prominent and highly useful member of the Methodist church in hi
      s
      vicinity, and no one can be more esteemed than he is, for integrity and
      uprightness of conduct. The most implicit reliance may be placed on his w
      ord.

      The undersigned have read his petition addressed to the Secretary of th
      e
      Treasury praying for a pension, and they have no hesitation in saying, t
      hat it
      may be received implicitly as the truth - because they are confident, t
      hat no
      consideration, would induce him knowingly to depart from the truth, and b
      ecause
      also, it accords with the tradition of the neighbourhood and the recoll
      ection of
      its oldest inhabitants, in relation to his Revolutionary career, accord
      ing to
      which, his heart and hand were devoted to the service of his country in t
      he day
      of trouble, and he is believed and understood to have given most of his t
      ime to
      her service, when she needed it. He is now far advanced in life, and ve
      y feeble
      in health and constitution; and the subscribers sincerely trust, that t
      he prayer
      of his petition will be granted, as they verily believe that his servic
      es to his
      country justly entitle him to it.
