Birth: Feb. 4, 1830
Marshall County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Aug. 18, 1895
Marshall County
Tennessee, USA

George Robert Tucker married first Emmaline Lanier and second, Martha Giles.

George Robert Tucker and John Hardeman Tucker joined the Confederate Army. George Robert was discharged in 1862 or 1863 as being "unfit" for service because of a stiff leg from White swelling and chronic bronchitis. John Hardeman Tucker was a confederate soldier until his death in 1864 at the Battle of Stone's River in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. When the family learned of his death, a wagon was promptly sent to Murfreesboro to bring him home. William Tucker was spared the agony experienced by many southern gentlefolk. He died at the beginning of the war, and it was left to the two remaining sons, George and Ferdinand, to manage the farm and care for their mother. His will revealed that William was a caring person, as he directed his sons, among other things, to care for two elderly slaves for the rest of their lives. His will was written in 1860, but was not probated until 1866, after the war. When a final disposition was made of his property in 1936, William had thirty-one known grandchildren and ninety-eight great grandchildren.

George Tucker married twice; first to Emmaline Lanier and second to "Aunt Matt" (Martha Giles). He did not have any children. George lived until 1895 at the old homeplace. He kept a wonderful "Farmer's Register" for many years about the weather on Flat Creek and other information about the sewing of wheat, "first lambs," church, grange affairs and trips to Nashville, mules and the weight and price of bacon. [Farmer's register original in file of Beverly Barnes.]
