Joseph TUCKER, Thomas McMULLEN (now MELLEN or MILLEN), and John BELTON lived in Madison County during the early 1800s. Joseph's son, David TUCKER, married Martha MELLEN, daughter of Thomas McMULLEN and wife Martha COWDEN, early settlers of the Town of Madison, who are buried at Old Meeting House Hill Burying Yard in Madison. David TUCKER had two sons, Samuel TUCKER and Appleton TUCKER. Appleton married Sarah BELTON ("Sally" in her father's will), daughter of Irish immigrant John BELTON, who settled at Pratt's Hollow. Appleton and Sarah TUCKER, and oldest son Orlando, are buried at Pine Woods Cemetery in Eaton. Some of Sarah BELTON's siblings--Robert, George, Thomas, Samuel, James, Anna (married James TACKABURY), Jane (married Russell TEMPLE), Margaret (married DICKENSON/DICKINSON), and Eliza/Elizabeth (married John TACKABURY)--left Madison County around 1820 for London, Ontario, Canada. Information on ancestors and descendants of these individuals would be greatly appreciated, as well as the names of the wives of Joseph TUCKER and John BELTON. Thanks.
