Tombstone Tuesday: Charles Tucker, Durham Cemetery, Durham




  Charles Tucker's gravestone caught my eye because of how the family plot is arranged. Charles was married twice. Gravestones for his wives are placed side by side, while a marker for Charles ends the plot. I would have expected Charles to occupy the center plot. It was a little odd.
   I've already written about Sarah Tucker, the first wife. That post covers much of Charles's early life. It doesn't, however, cover the end. He did marry an Eliza. From her tombstone, I would guess her maiden name to be Ross. She outlived Charles, but my photo is so unclear, I can't tell howlong.
  I can't locate Charles on the 1900 census. I have to wonder what happened to his family.
