Sara Josephine Andrews' notes: Elgie, Hazel and David were born on Grandma Tennessee Tucker Andrews' farm - 2 miles from Elgie's farm on Milltown Road.

Tennessee Tucker's step-mother, Elizabeth Warren "Patsey" Lanier, and her husband's mother, Lucy Lanier Andrews, were half-sister's, with Nicholas Lanier as their common father.

Maggie Yarborough was related through the Tuckers and she was Dean of Women at Columbia University in New York. Tennessee Tucker's great-granddaughter, Sarah Josephine Andrews would frequently mention that she attended Columbia University, but it is not known if she attended for only for a summer, or how long.

Great grandaughter Sara Josephine Andrews had a protograph of apparently her Aunt Myrtle in middle age upon the back of which she wrote, "1808 or 9 Aunt Myrtle and Uncle Will Harris. December 21, 1917 moved to Mud Creek. Elgie, Hazel and David were born on Grandma Tennessee Tucker Andrews' farm - two miles from Elgie's farm on Miletown Road."

TENNESSEE TUCKER'S FATHER:William Tucker was the husband of Rachel Dowdy. They moved from South Carolina to Tennessee where they established their home in Flat Creek. Eight children were born from their marriage: Annis, Julia, Rebecca, Allen C., Matilda B., Emmaline, Tennessee, and George Robert Tucker. In addition to raising his own children, William took in four grandsons who were orphaned (children of Emmaline Bugg Reed). The Tuckers allowed the grandsons to run a general store out of their home during the Civil War era. Historical documents note that the hallway of the Tucker house became a thriving mercantile business. The store was eventually moved to a building close to the Tucker home. It also doubled as the Flat Creek Post Office until 1912.

William Tucker is listed on the Tennessee Pioneer Honor Roll at the Williamson County, Tennessee Library.
