Henry and Hannah are my 5th great-grandparents. I descend from their third son Alexander. Unfortunately, Hannah is much a mystery to me as she is to you and to most researchers online. I have heard the rumor that that she may have been the daughter of Michael and Elizabeth DAUGHERTY; however, I have not seen any documentation to that effect.

As you probably know, in his will probated December 14, 1801, Henry names Hannah executor. He mentions his “girls,” but not by name. The only child he names is Alexander. In 1806, the Hardin County, Kentucky, Tax List notes “Hannah Frakes” with “352 acres on Rolling Fork Water Course.” She is listed in the 1810 US Census and 1811 Hardin County, Kentucky, Tax List. Hannah remarried Nathan TUCKER, a widower, in Hardin County, Kentucky, on 27 Feb 1814. From Hardin County, Kentucky, Land Records, on 28 Jul 1814, “Alexander and Margaret Frakes of the Indiana Territory, and Nathan Tucker and his wife Hannah, of Hardin County, Kentucky, sold to Wilford Lee, for $800.00, 352 acres on the south side of Rolling Fork Water Course.” Hannah appears to have died in Hardin County sometime between 1814 and 1820, since the 1820 Census does not indicate any females in the Tucker household above age 26.
