TUCKER - I'm looking for information on LEONIDAS TUCKER . He fought in the Civil War. I'm looking for his marriage date to a Harrison, when he died and where he's buried. I'm guessing he died around 1880-1890, either in Jefferson or Cleveland county, probably in Talladega Township. Thank you.  Sandy Bevill   2115 Parkdale Drive Kingwood, Texas 77339.  Dec. 2, 1999.
