CLELLAND, MORGAN, TUCKER posted by Kathleen Rizer on Friday, June 6, 1997

Have searched and found no further data on the James CLELLAND who married Sarah MORGAN on 14 Sept 1818. Was this in Taylor Co?  Sarah MORGAN CLELLAND seems to have died in Taylor Co. about 1865. She was the daughter of Zackquill MORGAN. Does anyone have dates for James CLELLAND? Their children were Drusilla CLELLAND b. 1819 (where?) who married J. Harrison TUCKER and did live in Taylor Co. There was also a son, Zackwell CLELLAND b. 1823. Did he marry?

Now know that J. Harrison TUCKER married Drusilla CLELLAND about 1842. He died before the 1860 census. His widow and five daughters are in that 1860 Taylor Co. census. The daughter were : Celia b 1843, Rachel b 1847, Virginia b 1850, Bathsheba b. 1852, and Caroline b 1854. Did any of these girls marry? When did the parents, J. Harrison TUCKER and Drusilla CLELLAND, die?
