rose allerton and rose tucker are the same person--allerton is her maiden name
rose married three times in this order
1stjohn tucker children:john,rose,sarah & william gerard tucker
2ndthomas gerrard--no issue listed
3rdjohn newton-- children:gerrard, thomas and then big split before elizabeth now good genealogy requires some sleuthing and speculation it is quite interesting that rose's children carry the name gerard both before and after rose's marriage to thomas gerrard-- was john tucker related to the gerrard's?
gerrard newton is sometimes not listed in the issue of john/rose newton--there is not a year between the death of thomas gerrard the birth of gerrard newton and the marriage of john and rose-- and the birth of thomas newton follows quite closely on the heels of gerrard--sometimes spacing is important--shall we say a rather quick consolidation of gains
so?is gerrard newton really the issue of a brief marriage cut short by thomas gerrard's demise--i.e., belonging to rose but not john newton or?is the name gerrard (gerard) just so omnipotent in the colonies at this time that if you've got it flaunt it? that would make the list of rose allerton tucker gerrard newton's children:
john/sarah/rose/william gerard tucker and gerrard, thomas & elizabeth newton
