James Milas Tucker, Jr.

Contributed by: Jim Tucker

My great granddad James Milas Tucker, Jr. whom they called Jim.  
His wife was Jane Morgan.  
He & his wife were from Montgomery Cty. N.C.

Jim's occupation was Wagon Maker & farmer. He served in the Civil War in the Confederate Army-Co. F-44th Regt. and enlisted at the age of 30 on 3/1/1862. He was present & accounted for until he was paroled at Lynchburg, Va. in 4/1865. It is thought that he was very prosperous for his time & he had 7 boys & 1 girl. He & his wife are buried in the Henderson Cemetery near Eldorado, N.C. & in the same row as N.B.(Dink) Tucker [ 1 of Jim & Jane's sons ] & his wife Cassie. It is interesting to note that he had an interesting way of keeping up with his children's births-he recorded them on a board which he kept nailed over a door of their home place. This remains in the family today. Jim Tucker & his wife were involved in gold mining in Montgomery County. Also they farmed & operated a whiskey still for the government. Jim served in Company F-44th Regiment Confederate States Army. He lived off of what is now Hwy 109 about 2 miles north of Eldorado. He was a Primitive Baptist & did some preaching.
