Dingler/Tucker Connection

Good Morning.

In doing some research on my Tucker line, have come across a possible connection to one of the Dingler lines I see discussed here.

quoting from a post on the Tucker genforum...

"Thomas Tucker (Rev. Soldier) b c 1745/50 in Amelia Co, VA d c 1821. Lived in Virginia, North Carolina and in Georgia (Wilkes, Randolph and Jasper counties). He married Elizabeth Ashmore. Children; John 1777, William 1780, Sarah 1790, Rody (female), Margaret, Pointon, Jeremiah (m Milly Dingler), and Mary (who m John Dingler). "

I am not related to the Dingler family, but thought someone here might could use this information. My interest is in that I think I descend from the William Tucker mentioned above.

I believe the information to be essentially true, because during a conversation with my second cousin this past June, he mentioned that he had seen a copy of a will of Thomas Tucker where he mentions leaving something (a gun, a knife? I don't recall) to his grandson and the last name of the grandson was Dingler.

Hope this will be of some use to someone.

Feel free to email me if interested, but I don't have any more information right now than what is here.

Happy Hunting

Lisa Tucker Melvin
