My family is from Shelby County Kentucky and originated in Virginia. My oldest traceable Rucker is Anderson Rucker born around 1850 in Benson, Kentucky. His father was from Virginia and mother from Kentucky. He married Jane ? of Shelbyville, Kentucky. Jane was born around 1847. They had sons
named Chester (1881), Richard(1884),William, and Alonzo. Chester married Roberta Dorsey (1895) and had one son, Cornelius Rucker (1915). Richard married Sadie B. ? (1892) and had children Louis A. Rucker and Luella Rucker. I am still researching my ancestry so there are many holes to be filled in. I know we have relatives in Shelbyville, Ky, Louisville, Ky, and Middletown, Ohio.
I reside in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cornelius Rucker (aka George Anderson) was my father. I have one sister and three brothers in the
Rucker line. My mailing address is P.O. Box 1912, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. I hope this information is helpful. I would like to obtain any information and/or photographs of this family.
Please check messages on this board posted by Erika Rucker or go to the compiled genealogy board and insert the name David Rucker. He is said to have lived in Kentucky and migrated to Texas.
Good luck in your search.
