Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 8, 1842
Panola County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Nov. 19, 1878
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA

Mary Eliza was the daughter of Adolphus Fenton Tucker, Sr. (b. 1815 in Virginia) and Mary Eliza Ruffin (1818-1846). In 1867 she married Jacob Scudder Galloway, who had moved to Tennessee from his home state of New Jersey prior to the Civil War. (He subsequently served in the C.S.A. as a lieutenant.) Mary and Jacob S. Galloway had three children, Sallie Ruffin Galloway, Martha Rebecca Galloway, and John Coffee Galloway. Mary Eliza Galloway died when her son was only two years of age, in 1878. Mary's husband Jacob was a lawyer and was serving as a city judge for Memphis when the Yellow Fever epidemic broke out in the city. Mary Eliza died from the disease, but he continued working -- the only judicial officer that remained at his post during the epidemic. Mary Eliza is buried in the Fowler Section, on the Southern half of lot 23 in Elmwood Cemetery -- a lot originally purchased by her grandfather, Major William Ruffin (1797-1857), one of the cemetery's original investors.
