Hi, Christopher.  You seem to share some common ancestors with Alice (Peter, b c1675, John b 1701, and John b 1724) so I linked your pedigree to hers on the Patrarch page.  You should contact her if you are not already in touch, to share information.  Good luck.  Hope you are both part of the DNA project.

What is your documentation that Peter Rucker, Immigrant was married to Elizabeth Fielding?  The Rucker Family Society's official position is that Elizabeth's maiden name is not known.  If you are copying her maiden name out of a book, that is insufficient to say for sure that Elizabeth's maiden name is Fielding.  You must have a marriage document or some other document to proove her name was Fielding.  We would all appreciate anyone who could proove a maiden name for Elizabeth.

William (Charles) Curray, b.11/2/1826 near Durham, England, m. Lucinda Henderson
Joseph Agrippa Curray, b.1/30/1858, Batavia IA, m. Emma May Collins
Roy Ernest Curray, b.6/24/1889, Locust Grove IA, m. Ruth Lovilla Ross
Joseph Ross Curray, b.1/19/1927, Cedar Rapids IA, m. Joyann Nelson, m. Mary Anne Curtis

William Curray changed his name from Charles when he was naturalized in 1861. We believe that he was orphaned young and brought up by a Joseph and Mary Curray and came first to Canada in 1840 with an "uncle", then moved to Michigan and finally to Iowa. Could he have been born a Rucker?

The following post, "Re: Rucker Family Pedigree" by  (Don A. Dyer) has been reported by jwb
Peter Rucker's wife was named Elizabeth as written in many documents including Peter Rucker's Will. We do not know her maiden name. Note: the maiden name Fielding was written in Edythe Whitley's book (1932) and later she admitted that she made it up and it was not true. Unfortunately the book is still circulating that Rucker's wife was Elizabeth Fielding. One of the important things in genealogy is proving a source and Peter Rucker's wife's maiden name is just not known. Peter Rucker arrived in Virginia in 1700, married and began his family. He never went to England (that we know of) and we do not know his place of origin.

What is your documentation that Peter Rucker, Immigrant was married to Elizabeth Fielding?  The Rucker Family Society's official position is that Elizabeth's maiden name is not known.  If you are copying her maiden name out of a book, that is insufficient to say for sure that Elizabeth's maiden name is Fielding.  You must have a marriage document or some other document to proove her name was Fielding.  We would all appreciate anyone who could proove a maiden name for Elizabeth.

My name is Erika and I am a decendant of the rucker's you are wondering about. I have found many documents that Elizabeth's last name is Feilding. I have also found her parents and grandparents. My email is available for you Alice to contact me if you would like.

Colby Rucker - married Sarah Roberts
 and then to their daughters Margaret Rucker married George Coffey 1782-1850 and Elizabeth Rucker married John Coffey 1776-1845
