Death: Jan. 31, 1899

Nancy Rhea Tucker was born January 19, 1822, in Tennessee, the second child of Moses and Martha Viannah (Austin) Rhea. She married William Bacon Tucker in Wayne Co., Tennessee. They had eight children: Fredonia Caroline, Martha Viannah, Farada Brown, William Jasper (twin), Moses Newton (twin), Margaret Elizabeth, Nancy Josephine, and Sarah Ann.

Nancy and William left Tennessee about 1849 and settled in Arkansas near White River. They left Arkansas about 1857 in a covered wagon made of hickory wood that was pulled by 4 longhorn oxen. Nancy carried a precious lead crystal pitcher in her arms all the way to Texas. The children walked most of the way, having fun as they went.

They came to Williamson Co., Texas, bought land, built a log cabin, and planted crops. They became active citizens in their community.

William Bacon Tucker died of pneumonia in 1865, leaving Nancy a widow. She remained a widow, raising the children by herself. Nancy died January 31, 1899, and was buried in the Matsler Cemetery, Williamson Co., Texas.
