Tuckerman. - At his home, in Stockbridge, Mass, June 10, Lucius Tuckerman, aged 72. Interment at Newport.


(VI) Lucius, son of Rev. Dr. Joseph and Sarah (Cary) Tuckerman, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, march 19, 1818, died at Stockbridge, Massachusetts, June 10, 1890. He was a pioneer in the manufacture of iron in the Untied States, and together with his brother, Joseph originated the metal called Ulster iron, which on account of its tensile strength filled requirements since supplied by steel. He lived chiefly in New York city at No. 22 Washington Place, and No. 220 Madison Avenue. Later in life he built a large house on the corner of Sixteenth and I Streets, Washington, in what was then the Corcoran Gardens, where he had a fine collection of pictures, and with his wife and daughters, Mrs. James Lowndes and Miss Emily Tuckerman, exercised a notable hospitality. His country seat was at Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where he died. He was vice-president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a life member of the National Academy of Design, and for many years a trustee of the Children's Aid Society. His portrait was painted by Moscheles and by George B. Butler.
