This is not my family, just trying to rid a grafter, with more established proof on my part, which I am a stickler. My husband line has a Nancy Telitha Tucker who married a Robert Searcy and had three sons, proof for this is the Cherokee Rolls of 1849, 1851, 1852; 1850 Gilmer Co., GA census, 1860 Wayne Co., MO census, Tucker family bible, Guion Miller Roll 1907, "unfortunately" even showing this to her, she still states our Nancy is hers.
