q.  Was Lucketts in 1892 was really Mountain Pleasant (Scattersville).  According to prior Black History research, “In this sprawling, rural settlement west of Lucketts, large vegetable gardens and livestock provided families with all their food except sugar and salt.”   Cities and villages often had “black enclaves,” segregated from the largely or wholly white town, which was the official post office.
