TWO DIFFERENT LOCAL TUCKER FAMILIES

 

There were two TUCKER families in the Perry Township, Allen Co., IN area and they seem to be completely unrelated unless they can be connected back in England. 

 

The first Tuckers came as pioneers opening this area.  This was Reason Tucker and his family and probably his father, William.  Reason was a millwright and his daughter married James Vandolah who also was interested in building mills.  So they came early to this area, about 1836.   In Ohio they had built some mills together.   

 

The second Tucker family members were descendants of Morris Tucker who was very early in the colonies in Massachusetts.  They made several moves before moving to Kosciusko County, IN, and eventually some to Allen County and the Huntertown area.  

 

Information on the Morris Tucker Descendants is from “Genealogy of the Morris Tucker Family”, compiled by Mirabel Tucker.   Booklet loaned to the Huntertown Historical Society by Carol Tucker Jensen.

More information on the Tucker family of Allen Co., IN:

 

Isaac Tucker and his wife are buried in the Perry Township Cemetery near Huntertown. 

 

Isaac’s father was THOMAS TUCKER and his mother was MARY SHOEMAKER. 

Thomas, born September 4, 1810, Jefferson Co., VA, and  died July 10, 1892

Mary, born May 10, 1814, in Shenandoah Co., VA, and died February 19, 1896

They were married October 10, 1833 in Greene County, Ohio

They are both buried in Perry Township Cemetery near Huntertown, IN

 

Thomas’s father was REASON TUCKER and his mother was FRANCES (maiden name unknown at this time.)

Reason was born about 1789 in Montgomery Co., MD

They were married about 1808

Do not know where they are buried or dates of their death

Reason Tucker was a millwright.

Their children were:

            THOMAS TUCKER (Above)

            REBECCA TUCKER, who married JAMES VANDOLAH  

                        Rebecca born May 1, 1812 in Jefferson Co., VA

                        Died February 16, 1881, both Rebecca and James are buried at

                        Perry Township Cemetery near Huntertown, IN

                        Married 12, 1832 in Greene County, Ohio

            JAMES W. TUCKER, who married EMELINE CAINE

                        James born October 20, 1815  in Jefferson Co., VA

                        Died August 8, 1884 

                        James and Emeline are buried Perry Township Cemetery, near

                        Huntertown, IN

                        Married November 20, 1837 in Greene County, Ohio

            JANE TUCKER, who married HENRY W. WOODS

                        Jane born about 1817, Montgomery Co., Ohio

                        Jane and Henry were married April 24, 1860 in Allen Co., IN

            SAMUEL TUCKER, born 1822 in Montgomery Co., Ohio

            JOHN TUCKER, born about 1823 in Greene Co., Ohio

                        Died August 12, 1892 in Perry Township, Allen Co., IN

 

Probable father of Reason Tucker was WILLIAM TUCKER.  William purchased a burial lot in the Perry Township Cemetery and is listed as being buried there.  At this time we can find no gravestone but an older inscription list says he was buried there.  He was born July 2, 1761 and died September 30, 1846 according to the burial records.  William was born in Frederick Co., MD.   

 

 

William’s children probably are:

            REASON, LUCY, TABITHA, SARAH, ELEVEN or LEVIN, and BENJAMIN

 

LUCY may also have come to Allen County.  She married an AMBROSE JUMP  or GUMP.  We find Lucy in the 1850 census of Perry Township, Allen Co., IN.  She has no husband listed at this time, but has a younger John Tucker living with her and her children.  Cannot positively  identify this John Tucker at this time, but Lucy has a nephew, son of Reason Tucker, who came to Indiana, and can find no further information about him unless he is the John found in Lucy Gump’s household.  There is a variance of 10 years in his age.  1850 census says he was born about 1813.    In various census reports she is listed as Lucy or Stacie with last names of Gump, and Jump. 

 

Some of the above information is courtesy of John Rohde who is a Tucker descendant of the Tucker family from Maryland.  Many thanks John for your generosity!   

 

John can take this family back one more generation to WALTER TUCKER, born 1738, died 1828 in Adams County, Ohio. 

 

Walter’s children:

            WILLIAM S. TUCKER, we assume father of our Reason

            REASON TUCKER

            OSBORN TUCKER

            MATTIE TUCKER

            SAMUEL TUCKER

            WALTER TUCKER, JR.

            BENJAMIN TUCKER

            NATHANIEL TUCKER

Note that Reason Tucker says he was born in MD in the 1850 census.     And the children, Thomas, James, and Rebecca say he was born in VA in the 1880 census.

If Walter Tucker was his grandfather, we find Walter still in MD in the 1790 census.

By 1792 he was in Berkeley Co., VA.  The first we find William in the tax lists is in 1793 in Berkeley Co., VA.    Reason may have been born in MD, but seems to have spent most of his young life in Virginia.  Then on to Greene Co., Ohio. 

 

FAMILY NO. 2,  THE MORRIS TUCKER FAMILY

 

TUCKER FAMILY, by Mirabel Tucker as printed in the Times-Union Newspaper of Warsaw, Indiana. 

 

“Mirabel Tucker has written the following account of her family’s history from its Massachusetts beginnings through the family pioneers who settled in Kosciusko County.”

 

The Tucker Family is of Anglo-Saxon origin.  The original name was probably “Torker” or “Tuker”   This was an occupational name and was referred to as one “torked” or “tucked” in a wool weaving operation.  The name later came to indicate a manufacturer.

 

MORRIS TUCKER, first of the line in America, was a Massachusetts Colony householder at Salisbury, Mass., as early as 1659. 

 

When he was a young man, still unmarried, a property list shows that he had two cows, four yearlings, one horse, one swine, five sheep, three acres broke upland, three acres pasture, one head and two commonages.

 

Morris was married Oct. 14, 1661, to ELIZABETH STEVENS, born Nov. 2, 1639.  They had one child, BENONI, born Oct. 16, 1662.  Elizabeth died in childbirth.  Morris, then married, ELIZABETH GILL, and they had eight children.

 

In June 1686, Benoni was united in marriage to ABENEZER NICHOLS.  They were the parents of eight children.  Their youngest child, EZRA, was born March 26, 1706, at Amesbury, Mass.  He married BETHSHEBA SARGENT and she died in 1743.  He then married LYDIA HOBBS, Jan. 24, 1745.  By his two wives he had 18 children.

 

AMERICAN REVOLUTION:  EZRA II born in 1738, married HEPSIBETH PRISSEY on May 3, 1759.  He served in the American Revolution from Henniker, New Hampshire, enlisting March 15, 1776 for one year. The first enlistments were for 6 weeks; then the term was extended to 3 months.  Then the government authorized the states to enlist men for one year.

Ezra II was commissioned a second lieutenant and served in Capt. Emery’s company, Col. Baldwin’s regiment, at the battle of White Plains.  He was a man of considerable property, owning land in various parts of the town of Henniker.  He was prominent in the organization of the new town and held many minor offices besides serving as selectman in 1770.  From 1777 to 1782 he was one of the three members of the “war committee” to hire soldiers for the town. 

 

JOHN TUCKER, son of Ezra II and Hepsibeth Prissey, was born in Kingston, N.H. on Jan. 10, 1760.  He married ELIZABETH LUCAS March 1, 1792.  They had seven children, and he was a farmer and a lieutenant in the State Militia.

 

JOHN TUCKER, JR., son of John and Elizabeth (Lucas) Tucker, was born Dec. 20, 1792.  He was married May 6, 1821 to MARY WARD and served as a soldier from Henniker in the War of 1812.  When he was 26 years old he had decided to walk 800 miles out west from Henniker to find some suitable land for farming.  He came to Pleasant Valley, Richland County, Ohio, where the hills and rocks were enough to keep him from feeling homesick for New Hampshire.  There he was joined by his brother, DAVID, in 1819.  They cleared a small patch and planted potatoes and lived together until 1821 when John walked back to New Hampshire and married Mary Ward. 

 

With a bride, a land deed signed by President Monroe, and a one-horse cart, he returned to his new home.  John and Mary were the parents of six children.  In 1846, John Tucker and his eldest son, HORACE, came to Kosciusko County to inspect the land.  Satisfied with what he found, he bought 160 acres in Franklin Township and built a log cabin.  John went back to Ohio, leaving Horace to clear away some woods and brush.  This work completed, he walked the 200 miles back to his Ohio home.  After selling his Ohio farm to his son, AURELIUS, John bought land in Kosciusko County, near Sevastapol, for his children, HORACE, ALBERT, REGULEUS and LIVONIA, and for Solomon Ernsberger, whom he had reared from infancy.

 

Among the outstanding farmer of Kosciuski County, HORACE and ALBERT TUCKER were no doubt the leading farmers and stock buyers of their day.  They paid taxes on as much land as anyone in the county.  Albert was the founder of Mentone, and the town of Sevastapol was surveyed and named by John Tucker.  John and Mary are buied in the Palestine cemetery.  Albert’s grave is in the Mentone Cemetery.

 

HORACE worked on his father’s farm in Ohio until 1848 when he married ELIZA JOHNSON.  They were the parents of three children, ALBERT, ROSELLA and HOLLIS.

 

On his Kosciusko County land, Horace was the type of pioneer who was not merely a good manager, but was ready to put in the heaviest and most arduous toil himself.  Many acres of the dense forest that covered his farm were cleared by the steady blows of his axe.  He was also efficient in the skill and judgment he showed in managing the men who worked for him. 

 

CORN AMONG THE STUMPS:  The first spring he planted about 6 acres of corn among the stumps, breaking the ground with a stray yoke of oxen that had come to the barn for some-thing to eat.  In 1871 Horace began erecting a brick house which is still standing.  It is presently owned by the Ralstons, who are restoring it.  The house is located on the old Indian Trail between Logansport and Warsaw, then called the Anglin Road and more recently known as the Beaver Dam Road.  It was the first house of that construction in the township, and the first to be supplied with a hot air furnace.   In addition to his own labor, Horace invested $4,000 in the house.  He also put up the first windmill in the township and was the first to have a cookstove.  Much of his money was made handling and marketing cattle.  He was in that business for about half a century.  When the railroads came, he was the first to ship a carload of livestock from Warsaw in 1856.

 

He attributed an accident as the cause that forced him into stock buying.  While dynamiting stumps, a large piece struck him and broke his leg, making it necessary thereafter for him to walk with a cane.  One of Horace’s cows had triplet calves on Feb. 4, 1868, and he immediately bought another cow to help feed them.  When the three calves were sold as steers, they weighed more than 9,000 pounds.  They were named Tom, Dick and Harry, and he showed them around the county until they were sold.  No one could tell them apart, but Mrs. Eliza Tucker.  After they were sold they were shown in 1876 at the Philadelphia Centennial.  When Horace and Eliza when to the Centennial and saw them on exhibition there, they thought the steers recognized them.  One of them had a mark on him that the others did not have, and that is how Eliza Tucker is said to have proved that they were the steers they had raised. 

 

Money was not made easily in Horace Tucker’s day as it is today, but he was not lacking in great liberality in its use.  He contributed generously to churches and many other worthy undertakings.

 

Horace began voting as a Whig and subsequently became an equally staunch Republican.  Always an influence in county politics, Horace served as treasurer and trustee in his township.  Besides his farm, Horace accumulated extensive tracts of land in Kosciusko and other counties.  He always used livestock as a means of making his land profitable.  In 1900 he sold from his farms, $8,000 worth of fat graded cattle, that being one of the largest single stock sales ever recorded in that county. 

 

ALBERT TUCKER, the third son of John and Mary (Ward) Tucker, a younger brother of Horace, born in Richland County, Ohio, married MARY FRAME in 1858.  They had one daughter, ALTA, and Mary died in 1860.  In 1861 he married KATIE McNEAL, and they were the parents of six children.  Katie died in 1889.  Albert married again December 28, 1897 to MARY ODELL BAKER, who was born March 17, 1859.

 

Albert founded the town of Mentone, located halfway between Warsaw and Rochester.  The town was laid out in May, 1812 by Amos Kist and Cahl Hughes.  Albert built the first elevator there and made loans of money to people to finish their houses in the new town.

 

He donated the ground for the Mentone Cemetery and was influential in causing the Nickel Plate Railroad to come through Mentone.  This caused other communities, such as Burket, Claypool, and Sidney to spring up in 1882 at the expense of Kinsey, Palestine, Dodgertown, Beaver Dam and Sevastapol, all of which had been lively trading places for a long time.

 

After buying the land which became the site of Mentone, he offered lots for sale at $75 to $100 per lot.  This venture brought him considerable money.  He named the town Mentone after a city in France.  This younger brother of Horace Tucker became one of the ablest financiers in the state.  He had received an unusually good education and his methods from earliest childhood were to make the most of his opportunities.  He excelled in mathematics.

 

Educated at an old log schoolhouse during the winters, his summers were spent at hard work on his father’s farm.  His last winter of schooling was passed in Richland County, Ohio, when he was 19 years old.  When he was 20 years old, in January, 1850, he started out for himself.  He and Abe Huston came on foot to Kosciusko County.  On the way the trail became so bad the two men had to stop their journey.  The contracted to clear 7 acres of land to 18-inch stumps in 7 days.  By that time the trail had become frozen and they continued their journey.  They found a home with Horace until they could get their bearings.

 

Upon his arrival here he had $20 in his pocket and the 160 acres in Franklin Township that his father had given him.  This gave him a fine start, but it required a vast amount of time and labor.  At first he took jobs clearing other people’s land.  When he was not thus employed he worked on his won land.  In this way he made his first clearing of the dense forest that covered his land.  His object in working for others was to get money with which to stock his farm and pay his running expenses.  Putting his money into land as fast as he made it, at one time he owned 2,700 acres worth about $60 an acre.

 

He began to raise stock of a better grade and to ship some when it was ready for market.  At one time he was one of the heaviest dealers in Durham stock in the northern part of the state.  His farming operations were also very large.  At one time he had planted 400 acres in wheat which yielded him 10,000 bushels to sell.  He also had as high as 300 acres of corn and grazed 425 head of fattening cattle on his own pasture. 

 

Although money was not as easily made in his day as in the present generation, he was not lacking in generosity, contributing liberally of his means to churches and other worthy undertakings.  He began voting as a Whig and subsequently became an equally staunch Republican.  He served as treasurer and trustee of his township and was always an influence in county politics.  Besides his farm, he accumulated extensive tracts of land in Kosciusko and other counties. 

 

Albert Tucker built his house and barn on Road 19, south of ALBERT TUCKER, the third son of John and Mary (Ward) Tucker, a younger brother of Horace, born in Richland County, Ohio, married MARY FRAME in 1858.  They had one daughter, ALTA, and Mary died in 1860.  In 1861 he married KATIE McNEAL, and they were the parents of six children.  Katie died in 1889.  Albert married again December 28, 1897 to MARY ODELL BAKER, who was born March 17, 1859.

Albert Tucker built his house and barn on Road 19, south of Mentone, and west of Sevastapol.  His son, CHARLEY TUCKER, lived there, then his son, EDISON TUCKER.  Now Edison’s son, CHARLES, lives there, farms and raises stock.

 

Mentone, and west of Sevastapol.  His son, CHARLEY TUCKER, lived there, then his son, EDISON TUCKER.  Now Edison’s son, CHARLES, lives there, farms and raises stock.

 

Many of the descendants of Horace and Albert Tucker reside in Kosciusko County.  Two of Horace’s great-great-grandsons live in Warsaw.  They are Warsaw Mayor H. DALE TUCKER, and MILES IGO, son of LENA TUCKER IGO, who is proprietor of C & I Manu-facturing Co.

 

A namesake and grandson of Albert Tucker, ALBERT TUCKER, the son of ORA TUCKER, also resides in Warsaw.  Tucker descendants, and they are legion, are proud of the heritage left them by those sturdy ancestors whose hard work and determination conquered the wilderness and helped to make our country great.  They continue to admonish the younger generations to remember those trials and sacrifices as they carry on the good name of Tucker.
