Title: Rucker Family from Tennessee
Post by: dmerrell on May 03, 2008, 01:22:38 PM
I am a descendant of James E. Rucker, b. April 22, 1818 in Maury, Tennessee.   He married Elizabeth Gregory, b. July 10, 1822 in Tennessee.    Their daughter, Miranda, b. February 13, 1844 in Tennessee, married Thomas Jefferson Bell.    Miranda died February 20, 1874 and was buried at the Rucker Cemetery in Troup, Texas.

Does anyone have any information on this Rucker family?   If so, can you pass along the pedigree of my James E. and let me know which "Lineage" or group we would fit into?

I can be contacted at:

Hello David,

I checked with Jeannie Brydon, granddaughter of Sudi Rucker Wood who wrote The Rucker Family Genealogy with their Ancestors, Descendants and Connectioins, Old Dominion Press, Richmond VA ©1932. Jeannie is working on an update/revision to her grandmother's book and probably knows more about Ruckers in the USA than anyone.  Jeannie wrote to me to say your family is:

James5 E. Rucker marr. Eliz. Gregory
James4 Rucker marr Mary/Sarah Wheeler
Mordecai3 Rucker spouse not known
William2 Rucker marr. Honor/Honar
Peter Rucker, Immgrant, naturalized 1704 VA, marr Elizabeth (surname not proven)

Good luck with your research.
