Lemuel was sopposed to have been in the revolutionary war.
It is said that Lemuel Rucker is the father to my great grandpa Elias Rucker. Elias had a twin bother named Silas. Both Elias and Silas were in the cival war.
There are several Lemuel Ruckers and I dont know which one he waswithout dates. One date said Lemuel was born in 1752 which makes no since because he would have been close to 90 when he conceived Elias and Silas who were born in either 1840 or 1844.
If he was in the rev war (1812) then he had to have been born at least in the late 1700s.Which also confuses me because that means he conceived the twins ,Elias and Silas, when he was an old man at about age 50 and over. That is possible I know.Either that or he was a rev war soilder as a child. Or him being in rev war part is not true. Oh why must this stuff be so confusing?
There is2 Lemuel Rucker's that are listed as being a decendant of Peter Rucker on some ,not all records. Anyone decended from Peter Rucker (not sure which Peter Rucker) gets to be a member of some kind of Rucker society. See the link below.
