Research Note, 18 Nov 2008:

It has been proposed that Dr. Davis Green Tuck was descended from Thomas Tuck, the father of John Tuck. But Thomas had three sons, Thomas, John and William, and no evidence has been found to establish which of them might have been Davis' father.9,10

     There were no children with Edy Stanley
