Hope and Lucy Tucker, Early Settlers of Perkins Township

Hope Tucker, as well as his wife Lucy (nee Carter) were early settlers of Perkins Township. Information about a court case found at Google Books, lists all the names of the children of Hope and Lucy Tucker:

 It is stated in the bill, that at the time of Clark Tucker's death, Lucy Tucker had the following-named children, the fruits of her marriage with said Hope Tucker: Alden, Salmon, Hope, and Orange (sons); and Roxy, Electa, Lucy, and Emily (daughters); all of whom are still living, and made parties.

Hope Tucker died in 1851, at the age of 73 years. He was buried the old Perkins Cemetery. In the 1940s, all the graves and coffins from the old Perkins Cemetery were moved to its current location, off State Route 250 in Perkins Township. Lucy Tucker died on December 11, 1868, at the age of 90 years and 2 months. An inscription on her tombstone at Perkins Township indicates that she was the daughter of John and Susan Carter.
