Mr. Pearce, I'm not related, but I have been looking at your ancestry line to try to help. I find a Simeon Tucker buried in Old Union Cemetery Walker County, Alabama. The census of this cemetery states that the dates could not be read, but he has a 1st Alabama Cav. USA stone. I find your Simeon Tucker under the 1st Alabama Cav. (Union) Simeon Tucker pvt/sgt. Co. E & K age 45, EN & MI 7/8/62 Decatur, Alabama born Jasper County, Georgia, farmer, appt. Corp 11/1/63 and Sgt. 1/1/65, POW 3/21/64 in Ark near Memphis, Tenn. release 4/30/64 MO 7/19/65 Nashville, Tennessee. On the 1867 Voter List, which the persons listed have been in state for 12 months and in the county of Winston for 3 months. Simeon Tucker born Oct. 18 1817 Jasper County, Georgia. This would be information that he himself would have given. It shows that Simeon was living in Precint 6 in Winston County at this time. It also states he is buried at Old Union Cemetery. I did not find him on the census of Old Union in Winston County, but as I have stated I did in Walker County.
I also could not find Ollie after the 1900 census. I have been trying to locate her in Walker County, but have not at this time. I'm going to look at the 1st Al. Cav. on line. sometimes the site will have a photo of the stone. Will let you know if it is there. Becky White
