John Tucker

ID # 48, (-1842)
MarriageJohn Tucker married Margaret Russell, daughter of George Washington Russell and Rachel Vrooman
DeathHe died on 5 August 1842 at Stamford Twp, Niagara District. 
BurialHe was buried at Drummond Hill Cemetery. 
NoteJohn Tucker's son, John Edwin Tucker, was buried in Drummond Hill Cemetery on June 21st, 1915. William Dalton's notes about the burial, names John's father as Isaac Tucker. John's death registration shows his father as John Tucker. Dalton says that Isaac Tucker kept a tavern known as the Grove House Inn. The death registration, however, is correct. Margaret's first husband was John Tucker. He died intestate in 1842. Margaret applied for Letters of Administration. The file is substantial. It is uninformative so far as family connections are concerned, but it does locate John and Margaret in Stamford. Given such circumstantial evidence as we have as well as the death registration, we must accept that Margaret's first husband's given name was John.

Margaret Russell Tucker's application for Letters of Administration is to be found on microfilm MS8420 at the Archives of Ontario. It states that John Tucker died on fifth August, 1842, and he was an innkeeper. John Tucker is not mentioned in the 1949 Vrooman Family book.

The Niagara Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society has an index and images for the ledgers of Morse Funeral Home. The death date given in 1842 for John Tucker is 6 August. This is probably closer to the date of the funeral. The index simply says that the funeral was ordered by the estate of John Tucker.

What is of rather more help is to be found in the ledger of William Dalton. Dalton's entry of June 21st, 1915, for the burial of John Edwin Tucker, son of John Tucker, simply says that John Edwin was buried in his father's grave.
