Frederick Goddard Tuckerman
Birth: Feb. 4, 1821
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 9, 1873
Franklin County
Massachusetts, USA

Frederick's parents were Edward Francis Tuckerman, 3d, and Sophia May.
Frederick G. Tuckerman, born in Boston, February 4, 1821, married Hannah L., the only child of General David S. Jones, and settled in Greenfield in 1847. He was educated at the Boston Latin School, Harvard College and the Harvard Law School. He read law in the office of Edward D. Sohier of Boston and was a member of the Boston bar. Having abundant means he spent some time in Europe, and in 1855 was the guest of Alfred Tennyson at Farringford, Isle of Wight. At this time the poet laureate presented him with the original manuscript of Locksley Hall. Mr. Tuckerman was a man of scholarly tastes and habits, and being a deep lover of nature, abandoned his profession and gave himself largely to the pursuit of his favorite studies. He was a skillful botanist and was acknowledged authority upon the flora of'Franklin county. He was an occasional contributor to Littell's Living Age and the Atlantic Monthly. He wrote a hymn for the dedication of Green River cemetery and an ode which was sung at the dedication of the soldiers' monument. His poems were first collected and printed in 1860. They were published in London in 1863, and re-published in Boston in 1864, and again in 1869. He died May 9, 1873, leaving a daughter Anna, and son, Dr. Frederick Tuckerman, of Amherst, both still living.
