I realize the Rucker's like the Coffey's have been researched a lot and I haven't seen any indication of the Indian ancestory.I believe the Indian part must come from the maternal side, perhaps through Sarah Robbins/Roberts side, but I don't have any proof. My connection is as follows. The daughter of Elizabeth Rucker and John Coffey (Elizabeth Coffey) married George Washington Hayes.Their son James "Simeon" Hayes who married Rachel Minerva Register was the father of my grandfather Jesse Cleveland Hayes. Elizabeth Coffey Hayes and George Washington Hayes as well as James Simeon Hayes and Rachel Minerva Register Hayes are buried in Baptist Union Cemetery near Pleasant Hill, Missouri, where I live.(This is my mother's side of the family "Hayes") I also have another side of my family (My father's side "Hamilton") who trace back to another section of the Rucker family. They both go back to Peter Rucker.
