This place was similar in character to Iola. Sometime in the '50s a postoffice was established in the northwestern
part of Knoxville Township, in section 21, township 76, range 20, about two and a half miles north of the present
railway station of Donley, but the name of the postmaster cannot be ascertained. After a few years the office was
discontinued and the history of Lucas Grove has been forgotten.
