More about Lewis Gordon Tucker
Hi Marty,

I'm new to Find A Grave, so I don't know if links to other sites are permitted. People who are researching the life of the Rev. Lewis Gordon Tucker may be interested in his life as a minister. The Historical Foudation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America posted a transcript of their files relating to the churches he served and the steps he took to complete his ordination. The link is http://www.cumberland.org/hfcpc/minister/TuckerLG.htm.

Thanks,

Kevin Harwell

Nancy Rhea Tucker bio
Please add this bio to the Nancy Rhea Tucker memorial page:

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.

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.


Thank you,

Hannah Roswell Rhea Tucker bio
Please add this bio to Hannah Roswell Rhea Tucker's memorial page:


Hannah Roswell Rhea Tucker was born January 25, 1825, in Wayne Co., Tennessee, the 4th child of Moses and Martha Viannah (Austin) Rhea. She married Rev. Lewis Gordon Tucker on May 19, 1842, in Wayne Co., Tennessee. To this union, 11 children were born: James Milton, John Rhea, Albert Spartan, Rufus Alexander, William Walker, Benjamin King, Moses Porter, Baby daughter, Roenia Jane, Cornelia Ann, and Martha Viana Hannah.

The family moved from Tennessee to Arkansas, then in 1857, left to live in Texas. They came to Texas in a covered wagon with 4 oxen, making the trip in 6 weeks. The family stopped in Leander, later moving on to the Gabriel. It was here that James Milton and John Rhea went to the Civil War, serving under Gen. Robert E. Lee.

In 1857, the year they came to Williamson Co., Rev. Lewis Gordon Tucker organized the first Cumberland Presbyterian Church in that part of Texas, known as the Elm Grove Church.

Hannah died on December 31, 1887, in Williamson Co., Texas. She was buried in the Matsler Cemetery in Williamson Co., Texas.

Her marker transcription was:
Strength and honor are her clothing,
And she shall rejoice in time to come.


Thank you,

Lewis Gordon Tucker
Please change Louis to Lewis.

Add this bio to Lewis Gordon Tucker's memorial page:

Rev. Lewis Gordon Tucker, the son of William and Martha (Gordon) Tucker, was born on the banks of the Hudson River between Albany and New York City on April 11, 1814. The family later moved to Tennessee, where he was educated and taught school.

During a revival, he was converted and called to preach. Soon after that, he married one of his students, Hannah Roswell Rhea, on May 19, 1842. To this union were born 11 children: James Milton, John Rhea, Albert Spartan, Rufus Alexander, William Walker, Benjamin King, Moses Porter, Baby daughter, Roenea Jane, Cornelia Ann, and Martha Viana Hannah.

Around 1850, the family moved from Tennessee to Arkansas, then on to Texas in 1857, where they stopped in Leander for a while before moving on to the Gabriel going towards Georgetown. It was here that sons, John and Milt, went to the Civil War.

In 1857, the year Rev. Lewis Gordon Tucker came to Williamson Co., Texas, he organized the first Cumberland Presbyterian Church in that part of Texas, known as Elm Grove Church. In 1865, he and his sons organized the Oak Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Florence, Texas.

After the war, the Tuckers bought a place south of Knoll. It was here that Lewis Gordon was building a new home when he passed away. The house was only partially finished, and it was thought that this hard work hastened his death on July 14, 1880. He was buried at the Matsler Cemetery in Williamson Co., Texas. His marker inscription was: of the Little River Presbytery of the C.P. Church, and He rest from his labor, his work is done.
