--------------------------------------------------------------------


Tucker, E. W., was born at Sandy Creek, N. Y., in 1856, a son of M. M. and Emeline (Woodruff) Tucker. His father still resides in Sandy Creek, and his mother died there in 1862. Mr. Tucker was educated in the district and union free school at Sandy Creek, after which he was engaged on a farm for a while. He then engaged in harness making, coming to Three Mile Bay in 1880, where he opened a harness store and has since been engaged in that occupation. He was elected town clerk in 1892 by the Republicans and owing to his ability as a penman and his care in administering the duties of his office, is yet serving the people of his town in that capacity. February 6, 1881, he married Emily Lucus, a daughter of Mr. Lucus of Three Mile Bay, and they had eight children, seven of whom are living: Eva, the oldest was born November 15, 1881; Kate, born March 22, 1883; Dean, June 15, 1885; Nettie, deceased, born November 12, 1886, died October 11, 1893; Georgiana, born June 10, 1889; Leah, October 2, 1890; Grace Louise, born November 9, 1894; and Susie M., born August 7, 1896. Mr. Tucker is a charter member of Lodge No. 498, I. O. F., of which he is now recording secretary. Both Mr. and Mrs. Tucker are active members of the Methodist Episcopal church, he being a trustee, and he is enjoying a fine trade. Mrs. Tucker's parents are residents of Three Mile Bay.
