    • ||A descendant tells the story that Luke was a drunk. In the winter of 1717, he spent an evening at the local tavern, got drunk and rode home in a driving snowstorm. On the way, he fell from his horse and rolled into a ditch. His body was not discovered until a thaw later in the winter. His last child was born after his death and was named for him. Susannah remarried about a year later to Peter Dillon, in Buck's County, Pennsylvania, and they later moved into Virginia and then into North Carolina.
