Descendants of Samuel Mason
Many thanks to Karen Weiss for submitting her Family
Tree on the Descendants of Samuel Mason Tucker. More information
can be found on him at: Ancestral
I'm attaching a genealogy report of the TUCKER surname in my
family for other researchers of the same family. Mason Samuel Tucker,
my gg grand-father, is my brick wall. Samuel & Julia lived for
awhile in the town of Scriba in Oswego Co. and were listed on the 1850
Census. All individuals listed are no longer living. This Tucker
family moved to WI in the 1850's sometime with some their children eventually
traveling West to other states and even back to NY. I have posted
information and pictures on the Rootsweb, Juneau Co., WI site. Thanks,

State Historical Society of Wisconsin Certificate of Service
This is to certify, that records in the state archives show that
late a Private in Co. A, 31st Regiment of Wisconsin Infantry Volunteers
was enlisted into military service on the 4th day of August, 1862 by Captain
Chase at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, for the term of three years and was
mustered into the military service of the United States on the 9th
day of October, 1862, by Major Smith at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.
At the time of his enlistment, Private Tucker's place of birth was
not given. He gave his residence as the Town of Prairie du Chien,
Crawford County, WI.
Private Tucker was on furlough from September 8, 1863 to October 8,
1863. He was on detached service at the post bakery in Murfreesboro,
Tennessee from November 1863 to March 1864. He mustered out of the
service on July 29, 1865.
The records further show that said soldier when enlisted was 44 years
of age, had blue eyes, light hair, a light complexion and was 5 feet 10
1/2 inches in height , and by occupation was a farmer. He was wounded
August 4th 1864 and admitted August 8 to General Field Hospital, Chattanooga,
Tenn. He had a gunshot fracture of the lower jaw.
Samuel died at the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers (DVS).
He arrived April 13, 1870 and was there temporarily. He died at the
hospital April 16, 1870 of Consumption.
He was not buried at Wood, WI, but is listed as being interred in Forest
January 30, 2001 - Note:
Clay Jacobson, grandson of Edna Tucker, called Forest Home Cemetery and
verified that Samuel was buried there in Lot 3, Block 16, Section 31, Grave
49. He applied for a grave marker and that was placed on Samuel's
grave March 2001.
Samuel is listed as Mason Samuel Tucker in LDS's IGA Index. Samuel &
Julia's marriage is also listed and the children Marietta, George, Charles,
Frances, & Amelia. This information was submitted to the Atlanta
temple by unknown source in Sept 1991. The film contains no other
Since there is no information on Samuel's parents names, following the
naming patterns in England listed below, possibly his father's name was
George Henry and his mother's name may have been Sarah or Ann or Sarah
Ann. Charles Samuel must have been named after Samuel and Francis
William may have been named after Samuel's eldest brother.

Military service: August 04, 1862, Company A 31st Regiment -
Civil War - Prairie du Chien, WI
Notes for Julia A. Delaney:
The naming pattern in England, 1700 - 1875 listed under Samuel presents
the idea that possibly Julia's full name was Julia Augusta Delaney.
We know Julia's mother's name was Mary (listed on her death certificate)
and their first daughter, Maryette, was more than likely named after
her. Julia's father's name was James, but maybe Augustus was also
part of his name. Almeda Lodoska and Angelina Sivilie were probably
Julia's sister's names.
Julia's Widow's Claim for Pension was filed April 22, 1871 as a resident
of Orange in the County of Juneau and was accepted for approval December
24, 1886. She received $8.00 a month commencing April 16, 1870 and
$2.00 a month for each child as follows:

Benjamin Theadore born June 9, 1864, 16 years on June 8, 1880
Angeline Sivilie born January 21, 1867, 16 years on January 20, 1883
It took fifteen and a half years to receive her pension.
Julia A. Delaney was born at Paris, France March 7, 1826,
and removed with her parents when about two years old to America, and resided
first at Syracuse, NY, and afterwards at Stockholm in the same state.
On May 7, 1844, she was married to Mr. Samuel Mason Tucker, and with him
went to reside at Oswego, where their eldest child Maryetta was born.
They then removed to Milwaukee, where five children were born, (see note
1.) Sarah Ann, George, Augustus, Augusta, and Charles. Then they
removed to Prairie du Chien, where five children were born, Francis, Almeda,
John, Benjamin and Angeline. They removed again to Monroe County,
WI and later to Mauston. The last three years she has lived with
her son, Benjamin, near New Lisbon, where she fell asleep in Jesus on the
morning of Nov. 18, 1904, aged 78 years 8 months and 11 days. Her
husband served as a soldier in the Civil War 3 years and six months in
Company A 31st Regiment, Wisconsin Volunteers and (see note 2.) died July
29, 1865. Six children preceded her in death and five remain to mourn,
George of Phillipsburg, Kansas; Charles of Nekoosa, WI; Benjamin,
of New Lisbon; Francis of Oregon; Angeline, of Oklahoma.
Funeral services were conducted at her late home by the pastor
of the Baptist church at New Lisbon, and she was laid to rest at the beautiful
cemetery at Mauston as the sun was sinking in the west, on Sunday evening
Nov. 20, 1904
Note 1: Samuel, Julia, Maryetta
& George are listed on the 1850 NY Census, thus Sarah Ann & George
were born in New York. Sarah Ann also died in NY. Possibly,
Augustus and Augusta were also born an died in NY. The Tucker family
was not found in the 1855 NY Oswego County census.
Note 2 : The date listed
for Samuel's death was his discharge from the Service during the Civil
War because of being wounded Aug. 4, 1864. He died April 16, 1870
at the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.

Notes for George Henry Tucker:
Source: Shirley Compton Butcher
Copied from Phillips County, KS newspaper
George Henry Tucker was born in New York State on May 16, 1854, and
died in the hospital at Phillipsburg, Kansas on February 27, 1907, being
52 years, 9 months, and 11 days old. (this may be in error,
as his mother's pension papers list his birth as May 13, 1850).
When a small boy, his parents moved to Wisconsin. Here, as a
young man, he obtained his education and learned his life's work, photography.
In September 1879, he was joined in marriage to Anna R. Reynolds.
Of this marriage was born four children, one a son in New York State, one
a daughter, residing in Grand Island, Nebraska. Two other daughters
died in infancy. In the fall of 1886, the Tuckers moved to Kansas
and settled in Phillipsburg, which has been his home ever since.
Here he opened a photograph gallery.
Mrs. Anna R. Tucker died July 20, 1887. On January 27, 1889,
Mr. Tucker married Mary Churchhill. Eight children were born to them,
six of whom are living. Two weeks preceding their marriage, both
Mr. Tucker and his bride were baptized by Rev. Simmons, and united with
the Baptist Church. He has been a constant member ever since.
For some time he was secretary of the Sabbath School.
When the Spanish American War broke out, he helped enlist a company
and was first lieutenant of the same. At the close of the war he
was honorably mustered out. Coming home he at once collected enlisted,
and for some time, drilled a company of state militia. He enjoyed
all military service. Mr. Tucker belonged to the Odd Fellows, Modern
Woodman, and Knights and Ladies of Security Lodges. In the last two
orders he was a Charter Member. He was a loyal enthusiastic and efficient
member in each of these lodges and he will be keenly missed from their
midst. He was licensed embalmer. He had the touch of a nurse,
and often times his services proved invaluable. Some two weeks ago
he had an attack of the grippe. Scarcely had he recovered from this
when his old complaint again appeared. So precarious was his condition
that a delicate operation was deemed imperative. This proved successful,
but the frame was so debilitated that he gradually sank under the load,
which for years he had so patiently, heroically bourne. The end came
last Wednesday, February 27. Mr. Tucker was a loyal citizen, a good
friend and neighbor. He did not make a loud show of his piety, but
at heart he was a Christian. Often did he say, "I am not afraid to
go". He leaves a sorrowing wife and her six children, besides two
grown children by his first wife. May God of the fatherless and the
Comforter of the widow, come to their assistance at this time. The
funeral services were held at the Baptist Church at 2:00 o'clock last Thursday
afternoon, conducted by Rev. E.F. Judson. The services at the cemetery
were under the auspices of the Odd Fellows Lodge of this city.

Spanish War Vet Dies In Hospital
Ill for the past two weeks in the US Veteran's Hospital at Batavia,
NY Frank Tucker of 323 Clinton St. Lockport, NY, Constable and Veteran
of the Spanish-American War, died there at 1:45 this morning. Mr.
Tucker was a past commander of Lockport Camp 83, united Spanish War Veterans,
one of the charter members and active in its affairs for many years.
He was born in Mauston, Wis. June 9, 1882 (see Note), serving

Besides his wife he leaves 4 sons, William, Floyd, Franklin and Clayton,
and 3 daughters, Mrs. Glenn Compton, Mrs. August Gawve and Mrs. John Drew,
all of Lockport, 11 grandchildren, 3 sisters and 5 brothers.
Note: Frank always listed 1882 as his birth date. Since his sister
Elva, was born Nov. 1882, we wondered about the right year for Frank.
Mary Ellen found a census record for Kansas that said he was born 1879?
Frank was the son of George Henry & Ruth Anna Reynolds Tucker.
This is submitted by Shirley Compton Butcher, granddaughter of Frank

On June 4, 1993, I had the chance to talk with grand aunt Myrta, she

was a good swimmer and that he owned a music store in town and played everything
but the piano. Edna and Mabel played the piano like Liberace.
She mentioned Harvey and Bonnie managed a resort in the Dells.
Julia's bible is in California. There has been great discussion
about it, she said an aunt took it and was supposed to return it. I would
imagine this is the bible referred to in the Widow's Claim for Pension.
