GEORGE W. LUCOT
George W. Lucot, the present county sheriff, is a representative of one of the oldest families of Amador County. His grandparents arrived in Sacramento about 1852 and there the grandfather established a cabinet-making shop at about the center of what is now the business district. After a few years they moved to Volcano. Their son Eugene, father of George W., was reared at the latter place, and became a blacksmith by trade. He also served as constable of that place. He married Miss Mary McCreevy, who was born in Volcano, where her folks settled about 1850, and she is still a resident there. To Eugene and Mary Lucot were born ten children, four of whom are living.
George W. Lucot was born at Volcano, on the 11th of September, 1876, and was there reared, receiving his education in the public schools. Following in his father’s footsteps, he learned the blacksmith’s trade, which he followed for twenty-three years at Volcano and Jackson. He was then elected sheriff of Amador County, in which position he is now serving his sixteenth year. He is in every respect well qualified for the office which he is so capably filling.
Mr. Lucot was united in marriage to Miss Mary McLaughlin, a native of Volcano and a member of one of Amador county’s pioneer families, and they are the parents of two children, Arthur and Mary. Mr. Lucot is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons, in which he has received the royal arch degree; the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Native Sons of the Golden West. He is a Democrat in his political views and has served four years as city trustee of Jackson. He is progressive and alert and is loyal in citizenship, standing consistently for those things which make for the good of society, and is one of Jackson’s most popular citizens.
