Rebecca (unknown)1,2

ID# 754, (1776 - 1855)
  • Born: in 1776 in Virginia.1,2
  • Died: 4 Aug 1855 in Kentucky.1
  • Buried: in the Tuck-Elliott Family Cemetery, Lafayette, Christian Co., Kentucky.1
  • Note: The attribution of Rebecca as the mother of Davis Green Tuck is not supported by sound evidence, but only on her presence in his household from 1820 through 1850, and her burial in his family cemetery. But his most likely father, if she is his mother, was alive in Halifax Co. Virginia as late as 1840, who why would she have been living with Davis all that time? It would seem more likely she was his aunt, daughter of his supposed grandfather, Thomas, but for the reading of her name on her tombstone as Mrs. Rebecca Tuck.3,4,5,2,1,6
Rebecca also appears in our Family History Section where there is much more information about her.
