            ... a thorough and well-researched account of the one of the thirteen original founding families of Germantown... the exceptional thoroughness of documentation is outstanding... this work identifies a substantial number of Germantown descendants, into contemporary generations... It is a valuable addition to our stock of knowledge of the "original thirteen."

            .... the first comprehensive genealogy published on the Lukens family. This is a beautiful book, not only to see, but to use... Easy to follow to check descending lines ... strongly documented ... a formidable bibliography.
