Guide to the George Redman Tucker Photograph
Redman Tucker Photograph, 1880s
George Redman Tucker was the son of William M. and Catherine Tucker of Franklin
county, Arkansas. He was born on August 19, 1855, in Arkansas. From various
genealogical sources information has been gathered about his life, though it
is sporadic and largely undocumented in primary resources. Tucker had been in
Texas during the Civil War, but was back in Franklin county, Arkansas by the
time of the 1870 census, listed with his sister, Martha Tucker Knox and brother-in-law,
William Alvin Knox. By 1880 he was in Montague county, Texas as a peace officer.
He moved to Oklahoma around 1900 as a deputy marshal and later sheriff of Waurika,
Oklahoma. He possibly had two children and may have been married twice. He is
listed on the 1880 census for Montague county, Texas. He is not listed in the
1890 census. He was in Oklahoma, mostly in Carter and Jefferson counties by
1900 and later.
George Redman Tucker died at the age of 89 in Ardmore, Carter county, Oklahoma,
on January 21, 1945, and was buried in Ardmore on January 23. His son, Bert
Tucker, informed the county and signed his father's death certificate.
