TUCKER, YEARWOOD, HASTINGS, GRUBS, ROARK
I am searching for John W TUCKER'S parents. John was born in Barren
(Baren) Williamson County 6 Aug 1823. The town does not exist anymore, but
I found a post office that opened up in Barren in 1839 and closed in 1870.
So at least I have pinpointed the existence of Barren somewhere. The only
information I have on his parents is that his mothers name was Jane and we
think his fathers name was Louallen or any spelling variation thereof. I
do however have the siblings of John, which follows. Joseph Pascal b in
TN, d 23 Mar 1892 Madison Creek ARK, married to Mary E YEARWOOD 21
Mar 1850. Allen Harvie b 7 June 1829 in TN, d 11 Oct 1909 Madison Creek
ARK, married Elvirie ROARK. Thomas TUCKER...no information.
Robert TUCKER d Twin Falls Idaho. Cathern TUCKER b TN,
married to someone by the surname of GRUBS. And a half brother,
Henery HASTINGS b 1 July 1857. We think
both parents died while the boys were in their teens, because the
story is that they decided to go their seperate ways, ARK, MO, ID,

I seek e-mail contact with any one descended from or interested in

d. May 1855 in Williamson Co., Tenn. Virginia Bowman of Franklin is a
descendant of Collin...if you are related to her and have e-mail, I'd like
to hear from you. Collin was my 5th great uncle, and I know of few figures
who spoke so openly and revealed more for today's genealogist. Without
Collin, much of the Tennessee McDaniel genealogy would be forever lost.
Collin operated a tavern and postal center on the Franklin Pike beginning
in 1805. He had 11children...many living in Mississippi, a few living in
Franklin. Please let me hear from you!
