Eva, I have not confirmed that this is for sure my Mary Tucker. See notes below. It is a working progress. I tried to cut and paste some of my notes here, so keep this in mind when you read it. Most of the information I got on TUCKERS was from Robin Gae Richard Forrest's Genealogy Site, http://www.our-genealogy.com/index.html#FAMOUS. Maybe we can put our notes together and come up eith soemthing.

Thanks,
Don Trumbo

This is getting quite interesting and exciting.
When I first started to research my family tree many moons ago I was given an advertisement in the North Devon Journal Herald from Florence B Ogle 2609 Rio Grande Dr. Punta Gorda FL33950 USA asking if anyone had information on her great grandfather William Gaskins Adams who married Mary Ann Tucker. I did contact her by phone but unfortunately due to family sircumstances I had to abandon it for a while. Decided to resume but found it totally confusing but now with more time (family grown up) here we are again. I think it would be a good idea if you contacted this lady as she has written a book on the family if my memory serves me right. This is so obviously your family and the Tucker side probably mine. John Tucker my grandfather born 1859 (second youngest) was orphaned at an early age and along with some of his siblings taken to the Cottage Home in Barnstaple(Poor House) Apparently according to my father George Tucker born 1890 the youngest brother George born 1860 was later taken to the State of Indiana where all trace of him was lost. Any ideas or info on this please? According to my records Mary Ann Tucker was baptised in Georgeham on February 4 1810 the daughter of John & Mary. I actually do think this is my family but will endeavour to find more details.

Marriage Notes for MARY TUCKER and WILLIAM ADAMS:
IGI records of ADAMS suname for the county of Devon, England (Georgeham Parrish and surrounding area) Source: Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints (LDS) Adams William M 23 Dec 1832 Mary Ann Tucker M050601 916847 1037021 Georgeham

From Ann Pearce, Jan 11, 2009
Georgeham Marraige Reegister, William Adams of Braunton married Mary ann Tucker of Heaton by banns on 23 Dec 1832. Witnesses were Ann Hancock and John Hooper. (Heanton would be nearby Heanton Punchardon) John Hooper witnessed many marraiges arounf that time. May have been a church official.

Note: "of" a village/town means that it was where the person lived at the time of the banns and the marriage(not where he/she was born). You probably know that "banns" had to be read in the church in which the marriage was to take place and in the parish church in which the person lived on three Sundays before the intended marriage date; this was to give people a chance to learn of the forthcoming nuptials and to object if they had grounds to do so.
