If you try to reply by sending to the address lycos lists in this
message, it doesn't work, because they send it as

Anyway, it seems that we are third cousins twice removed. I don't
know how much information you have, so some of this may be dupication.
Let me give you some of the information I have:

James Harrison Tucker, b. 30 Jan 1824, Dixfield, Maine and d.28
Oct 1878, Olengary, Filmore, Nebraska.
Sara Rebecca Blair, b. 27 Jan 1827, Iowa and died 19 Jan 1889, Olengary,Filmore, Nebraska. They were married 19 Oct 1849, in St. Louis, Missouri.
their children were:
Cyrus Tucker, b. 24 Jan 1851, St. Louis, Missouri
d. 1 Oct 1857, Cass County, Nebraska
***My great grandmother:
1. Ella Cecelia Tucker, b. 19 Oct 1852, St.
Louis, Mo
d. 29 Jan 1933, Lead,
South Dakota
Albert C. Tucker, b. 14 May 1855, Freemont,
Jane C. Tucker, b. 15 Feb 1857, Cass County,
d. 5 Aug 1860, Cass County,
Charles E. Tucker, b. 21 Dec 1858, Freemont
County, Nebraska
Robert B. Tucker, b. 21 Mar 1861, Freemont
County, Nebraska
John J. Tucker, b. 15 Oct 1862, Cass County,
d. 10 Oct 1863, Cass County,
Mary I. Tucker, b. 9 June 1864, Cass County,
***Your Great Grandmother:
Jennie F. Tucker, b. 12 Oct 1866, Cass
County, Nebraska
Dora May Tucker, b. 30 Apr 1870, Cass
County, Nebraska
d. 21 Nov 1872, Cass
County, Nebraska
William Henry Tucker, b. 31 July 1872, Cass
County, Nebraska

Sara Rebecca Blair's parents were:
Beverly Blair, b. abt 1801 in Iowa
Eleanor, b. abt 1805 in Iowa
I couldn't find any other information about Sara's family line.

James Harrison Tucker's parents were:
Jonas H. Tucker, b. 2 Sep 1789,
d. 7 Feb 1862
Abigail Harper, b. 16 Mar 1797,
Rumford, Oxford,Maine
d. 7 Apr 1856
I couldn't find anything more on the Tucker line, but followed some
leads from responses to your original query. I found:
Abigail Harper's parents were:
James Coleman Harper, b. 10 Mar 1762, Ashby,
Middlesex, Massachussets
Elizabeth "Betsy" Elliott, b. 17 Sep 1775,
Concord, Merrimack, New Hampshire
d. 29 Oct 1809,
Rumford, Maine
James Coleman Harper's parents were:
Daniel Harper, b. abt 1737
Rachel Coleman, b. abt 1740

Elizabeth Elliott's parents were:
Benjamin Elliott, b. abt 1747
Abigail Webster, b. abt 1751

I don't believe the last will and testament that I have from Abibail
Tucker is from "our" ancester Abigail (Harper) Tucker. The people
she names as relatives in the will are those of a maiden Abigail
Tucker. I need to research it more. Hope this information helps you.
