Macon, GA 31211
Query: My ggrandfather was William E. Tucker born 1844 in Ohio. Married Hattie Melinda Cornell Sprague, Madison, Wisconsin, April 1864.They had 3 sons Clarence, Arthur and Fred in Michigan then moved to Baxter/Izard/Fulton Co AR abt 1879 where 3 girls were born Lulu, Grace Edna and Birdie Avis.

I believe Birdie was born near Advance, Baxter July of 1886. William died Huron, Izard, September 1900 and Hattie died 1907 Huron, Izard. Both buried Corrinth Cemetery, Fulton(I think) just East of Wild Cherry, AR. Arthur was my grandfather. He married Sara Ann Lackey (born Norfork, Baxter 1887, died 1951) August 1902. Arthur and Sarah had 2 children before they were divorced abt 1907. The first was William Edward "Ed" Tucker (July 1903-Apr 1968), my father.

My mother is Geneva Kate Adams daughter of Joseph Morton Adams and Sara Viola Smith, daughter of Calvin Smith and Katy Hamm. Joseph Morton was son of James Davis Adams (Of Mountain Home, Baxter) and his second wife. James Davis was the son of James who was the son of another James. The elder James was married to Agnes Wilson, daughter of Matthew Wilson of York County, PA. (now Adams county).

I am just getting started in a determined way in the Tucker family tree. If anyone has any info about William, Hattie or any of their children (or anyone else Adams, Lackey) I would be very appreciative if you would share it with me.

Thank You....B. J. Tucker
