|Birth: ||Jan. 3, 1887|
|Death: ||Jun., 1888|
Roy Lee was placed on a quilt, out doors, where he was sleeping. His mother, Mary Tucker, was very near her sleeping son, as she doing her laundry. A snake crawled upon the quilt and bit the baby while he was sleeping, when his mother checked on him, he did not move. Her cry for help, brought help, but it was too late and baby Roy died at 18 months old. This was James Marion and Mary (BEARDEN) Tuckers first child.
Mary was pregnate with Elmer and he was born Sept 1988.
I am sure she never forgot about the first baby boy she and James had. Mary would have 4 daughters before she had two more sons. And then, 2 more daughters. Sadly, her last daughter Sarah Ethel Tucker died at 5 months old. But, all the remaining children lived to their Senior Years, Served the Lord Jesus, and had wonderful families, but none every forgot the baby brother or baby sister who died so young.
James Marion Tucker is the owner of the cemetery plots. There are four spaces, one was used for Sarah and one was believed to be used for Roy Lee, while 2 spaces remain. I do not know if the spaces were used or not, there are no markers. The information came from the Cemetery where Sarah and Roy were laid to rest in Jones Co., TX at Mt Hope Cemetery...Only one grave still has a marker.
