Well, my Tucker family line traces back to a Robert and Mary Pierman Tucker in Wythe Co., VA. The whole family and one of Robert's brothers, Llewallan, I believe, packed up and moved to Roane Co., TN in the early 1800s. From there, Robert and his family along with at least one of his nephews moved to Bond/Montgomery Co., IL. Many of the daughters married local folks and stayed in IL. James and either one of his brothers or one of his cousins moved to Arkansas and then to Barry Co., MO.
What we Barry Co., MO Tuckers cannot do is connect our Robert Tucker to any of the southside Virginia Tuckers. I was hoping to find a clear connection someday!
Good luck in your search!
