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.
