The Buck/Hofeldt tree on ancestry.com list John'a parents as,
Jonathon Lindsey Tucker
Birth 1834 in Monroe,Amherst,Virginia
Death 1883 in Farlinville,Linn,Kansas

Sarah Eva James
Birth 12 Apr 1846 in Quincy,Adams,Illinois
Death 25 Mar 1883 in Farlinville,Linn,Kansas

John Albert Smith
Birth 26 Jun 1875 in Farlington, Linn, Kansas
Death 1 Oct 1958 in Iola,Allen,Kansas

Brooks was living with them in 1880.

I looked at the library for a death notice for Brooks up to 1920 but did not find one. Didn't have Johns death date with me so couldn't look at his. He is buried in Moran Cemetery according to the index book.

Familysearch has some Ks marriages online but they are not indexed so you will have to browse.

You could search here first, http://linnco-ks.genweb.us/marriages.html, and it will tell you what book and page to look at.

I can look for a death notice for John if you want. I won't be going back to the library until sometime next week.

There probably is not allot of records from that time period on adoptions or foster parents. But I am not sure if that tree is correct. You might see if you can find if there was any probate records for the Tuckers.
