She was 88 years old last Sept. 7. She was twice married and has nine children, all living.
Her first husband was Isaac Greathouse; he died 49 years ago. For a number of years they lived on Triplett at what is now the Adam Goebel farm. That was more than 50 years ago.4 Their eight children are as follows:
Her second husband was William Tucker.6 Their one daughter is Mrs. America Tanner of Rush of Henry’s Fork with whom Mrs. Tucker now lives. Mr. Tucker died about 30 years ago.
Mrs. Tucker is the mother of a large posterity. She has enumerated 114 grand-children and great-grand-children.
Mrs. Tucker, although feeble, gets about very good for a woman of her age, and bids fair to live many more years. Her father is said to have been more than 100 years of age at the time of his death.
