Thank you so much for your response. I do not have any information on the Ragan line. In 1850, the only Tuck family in Paulding County (later Polk County) was the Evander Tuck family. My line, Thomas N. Tuck, came to Polk County in 1858 and I thought there may have been a relationship. I'm sorry I don't have additional information, but Paulding, Polk, and Bartow are adjoining counties and there may be a relationship there.
I am seeking information on Thomas Tuck (my gg grandfather), born on August 11, 1822. He served in the Civil War in Co. K, 40th Volunteer Georgia Infantry, with the "Haralson Invincibles." He was wounded at the Battle of Baker's Creek in Mississippi on May 16, 1863. He later drew a war pension but died soon after that began.
His military enlistment record states he had been a resident of Georgia since March 5, 1858. He married Sarah A. Powell in Floyd County, Georgia, on November 3, 1858.
The 1870 Polk County Georgia Census shows that Thomas Tuck was born in Virginia in 1825, while the 1880 Census shows that he was born in Georgia in 1822. He is buried in Cedartown, Georgia, and his tombstone gives his date of birth as August 11, 1822, and his date of death as July 23, 1891. His grave is marked by a Confederate marker. His name reads Thomas Tuck, but Census and Military records have shown his name as Tom N. Tuck, Thomas A. and Thomas N. Because of the various styles of writing on the records, I believe that the "A" and "N" looked similar and were interpreted differently.
The story passed down in our family was that he came to Cedartown, Polk County, GA, from Tennessee and never returned home. We know nothing about his family because there was no contact after his move to Georgia.
His children were:
Louisa A. Tuck (also shown as Sarah L. Tuck) 1862
Hezekiah W. Tuck 1866
Thomas J. Tuck 1867
Harriet J. Tuck 1869 (I wonder if Harriet and Hattie are one and the same)
Hattie Jane Tuck 1870
Mary Tuck 1872
Cornelia Tuck 1973
Nannie Tuck 1876
John Tuck 1878
William Henry Tuck 1879 (my g grandfather)
