Lucy Clark Croghan was born at Caroline Pines, in Caroline County, Virginia, on September 15, 1765.


Lucy was George Rogers Clark’s younger sister, the second daughter of John and Ann Rogers Clark. Her father was Jonathan Christian Clark, Revolutionary War soldier,[1] from Louisville, Kentucky. Lucy's mother, Ann Rogers Clark was from King and Queen County, Virginia.

Move to Kentucky

In 1785 she and her family made the dangerous journey to the Kentucky Territory after George Rogers Clark convinced their father that the rich Kentucky soil was the future of Virginia. She met William Croghan through his connection with her brothers, and they were married on July 14, 1789, in Louisville. Croghan purchased most of the land that would become Locust Grove the following year and hired hands to begin building. The house was under construction and the land was cleared for farming during the period 1792-1795.


After the birth of their first two sons, William and Lucy moved to Locust Grove, where over the years they had six more children.[2]
