C.B Tucker My name is Gary M. Tucker. My son Chris has discovered, through a DNA test of my grandson Josh, that we are linked to Churchwell B. Tucker. It appears that C.B is my Great, Great Grandfather. My Dad was Robert Tucker, my grandfather was John E. Tucker whose father was Joseph Tucker. Members of my family have searched for years and were always stumped when we got to Joseph and could go no further. My cousin Phyllis is the family member who has the most knowledge of our family and has been instrumental in searching, along with my son Chris. I would like to speak to you to make sure we are on the correct path. I am located in Kodak, Tennessee and we have family strung out from here near Knoxville to Gastonia, NC, Macon, Ga, Nashville and many others including Albuquerque, NM. Please contact me if you can offer any additional information. My email is: email@example.com. Thanks and looing forward to hearing from you.
