Not my family line, just sharing.

"LEVEN TUCKER Jr., was born in Sussex County, Delaware, January 12, 1823, and is the seventh in a family of eight children born to LEVEN and ANNABEL (WORKMAN) TUCKER, both natives of the above county. LEVEN TUCKER Jr., was left an orphan at the tender age of three. Until fifteen years old, he was reared by a cousin, who came to Fayette County, this State (Indiana), in about 1829, and some years later moved to Cass County (Indiana). In 1840, MR. TUCKER returned to Delaware for a year, and then went to Pickaway County, Ohio, where he worked by the month for seven years. In FEBRUARY, 1848, he came to this county (White County, Indiana), and on the 9th of November following, married JANE WOLVERTON, native of Pickaway County, Ohio, daughter of PHILIP and MARY WOLVERTON. In March, 1849, MR. TUCKER bought 200 acres of wild land in this township, and here he has lived ever since. In the cabin, which is still standing, first erected by MR. TUCKER on this farm, were born all of his six children, of whom four are yet living. He has added to his farm from time to time until he now owns 700 acres of well-improved land. He is engaged extensively in stock breeding and dealing, and is a leading general farmer. In politics, he is a Republican."
