Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 282, Honey Creek Township, White County, Indiana

"JOHN BRUCKER was born in Wittenburg, Germany, November 23, 1850, and is the second of the seven children born to JACOB F. and CAROLINE (KELLER) BRUCKER. The father was a wagon-maker, and in the spring of 1853 brought his family to the United States, settling first in Logan, Hocking County, Ohio, where he followed his trade until 1866, when he came to LaFayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana, where he remained one year. In 1867, he came to Reynolds, this Township, where he pursued his calling until 1873, when he engaged in the lumber business. He and his wife are members of the Lutheran Church. JOHN BRUCKER received a very fair education in his youth, and was then taught wagon-making, which trade he followed until twenty-four years old, when he opened a blacksmith shop at Reynolds, and conducted it for eight years. He next bought a drug store at the same place, which he still carries on with eminent success. November 24, 1873, he married REBECCA RIDGEWAY, a native of Virginia, who has borne him three children. In politics, MR. BRUCKER is a Democrat, and for two years was Township Trustee, three years Treasurer of the School Board at Reynolds, and is now a member of the Board of Town Trustees."
