Seeking information about husband and child of Nora Tuck.

NC Birth Index has a Clara Davis Tuck b. 21 Nov 1924 in Cabarrus Co to David G. Tuck and Nora Nunn.

Tombstone in Kannapolis City Cemetery (Cabarrus Co) under heading "Tuck" has the following: WIFE, Nora Annice, July 17, 1900-Dec 21, 1924; MOTHER, Bessie Lee, Apr 7, 1885-Mar 11, 1923; FATHER, David G., Sept 22, 1880-Jan 19, 1945.

Death Certificate for Norah A. Tuck (same dates) shows husband G. D. Tuck, father John Nunn, mother Emma Lawson; she died of scarlet fever just a week after birth of child.

David Gustavis Tuck, Sr, sometimes went by Gus, but headings of wife and father on tombstone would seem to preclude him as her husband; David Gustavis Tuck, Jr was born after Nora's death. David's oldest son, Henry David was already married and their first child, a son, was also born in Nov 1924.

So who did Nora marry? And what happened to child Clara Davis Tuck--did she die of scarlet fever also? Is it possible that D.G. Sr. md. Nora after Bessie's death and "Wife" on tombstone refers to him rather than a son of DG's?
