Notes

  • In 2008, reporting information from Tucker family records, JessieMcPherson Jenkins wrote of G W Tucker:
    "He married (1) R A Bostwick. She was born abt 1854 in AR."

    The name is known in Tucker family records as R A Bostwick.  By lateSeptember 2010, the only public record I had found for R A BostwickTucker was the 1880 census, where she is reported as R A Tucker.  ThenI received some information referencing additional sources.

    Comment on Ancestry Tree
    R A Bostwick (Bostic)
    Charlotte Parker added this on 27 Sep 2010
    "R.A. is my paternal gggrandmother (her first son Joe T. Parker, is mygrandfather). I have not been able to find death record or burial onher, so this info on when George W. Tucker remarried is helpful. Hername is shown as Roseanna Bostic in 1870 US Census ...."

    The initials R A could be for Rose Ann or Rose Anna.  After receivingthis message I found the Ancestry transcription of the marriagerecord:

    The 1870 census reports a daughter Roseanna Bostic, which seems tomatch our R A Bostwick, with her parents in Pulaski County.

    There are numerous other Bostic families in Vilonia and CypressTownships of Faulkner County:  marriage records, censuses, and otherrecords.  These seem to be from the same lineage as Roseanna's family. This may mean the original spelling of their name was Bostic.  Itcould mean the original Bostwick was simplified to Bostic.

    In 1871, Roseanna married Taylor Parker in Pulaski County, Arkansas.

    In the 1880 census, R A Bostwick is reported with her second husbandGeorge Washington Tucker.  The two initials R A could have been takenby the 1880 enumerator for two names -- as we sometimes find oncensuses, and in her marriage record above -- where the original wasunderstood by the family as one double name.

    This census record reveals that she had been married first to a manname Parker.  The oldest child in the household is J T Parker, age 5.From this age we can estimate that Roseanna married Mr Parker about1874.  A very interesting feature of this census entry is that R A islisted first, but the House and Family numbers are on George's line.

    Even though she is listed first, R A is Keeping House and George is aFarmer.  Neither she nor George have a designation as Head or anyother relation, but the others in the household are reported in theirrelation to R A, not George!

    Tucker Researcher Linda Matchett reports the Parker son as Joe TParker:  "all I have on Joe T. Parker is his birth about 1875."  Sheprovides the following information about the two Tucker children here.

    ---------------------------------------------------
    George & Roseanna Bostwick Tucker's children are:

    1) G. Frank Tucker (I would think the G. was George, but never saw itas such), born Mar 28 1878 in Cross Co. AR, died Aug 19 1903 inShawnee, OK. It's not in my notes, but I'm sure I've heard he wasstruck by lightning, causing his death. He was in the 1880 census,Bedford twp, Cross Co. AR in the home of his father George W. Tucker,shown as G. T. Tucker, age 2.

    2) J. M. Tucker, born Dec 6 1879 in Cross Co. AR; in 1880 census inBedford twp., Cross Co., AR in home of his father, age 6 months; diedas an infant.
