    "George & Roseanna Bostwick Tucker's children are:
    1)  G. Frank Tucker (I would think the G. was George, but never saw it as such), born Mar 28 1878 in Cross Co. AR, died Aug 19 1903 in Shawnee, OK.  It's not in my notes, but I'm sure I've heard he was struck 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 in Bedford twp., Cross Co., AR in home of his father, age 6 months; died as an infant."

    His memorial on Find a Grave reports him as George F Tucker.  The dates on the grave match those reported by family sources for G T Tucker.  The 1880 census has a script T with no bar across the stem to indicate it was meant to be an F.  The Find a Grave memorial unfortunately includes no photo of the gravestone itself.
