Oliver Luce is mentioned in the Dukes County, Tisbury Tax Valuation List of 1771. He was evidently a young man at the time or very poor because he had no rateable valuation. By 1786, he had migrated to Stowe, Vermont. Who was his ancestor and what was his geneology? Where did the Luce family originate from in Europe? When did they arrive in Massachusetts? Did they imigrate directly to Martha's Vineyard?
