* The Tucker, Truelove, Estes, & Woodward Families of Alabama*

Updated January 25, 2003

I am researching the descendants of George Tucker, Sr., the Revolutionary War soldier buried in Old Hopewell Cemetery in Fayette County, Alabama. Related surnames in my direct line include Leverett, Beaird, Truelove, Estes, and Woodward. My Tucker family were residents of Sumter and Marengo counties from about 1830 through about 1940.

I am especially interested in finding information on Solomon Woodward born abt 1825 in SC who married Eliza Hubbard born 1832-1835 in SC. I believe they may have been the parents of Alice Fayetta Woodward who was my great-grandmother. Alice married Taylor Lomax Estes of Marengo county. Census data indicates that Taylor's parents were John R. and Ellen Estes of Virgina. My grandmother, Rosa Estes Tucker, used to say that four Estes brothers migrated to Virginia after one of them ran into trouble with the law in England. I also hope to find additional information on this family line.

My maternal line descends from the Adams and Friday families of Chilton and Dallas counties in Alabama. Richard Berry Adams, a veteran of the 28th Alabama Infantry, CSA originally came from Tennessee, where he was born about 1828. He settled in the Summerfield community of Dallas County and fathered a large family with his wife, Eliza Margaret McGee. The family of William Edward Friday resided in Chilton County. After the death of his first wife, Jennie Wylie, he remarried and moved to Quincy, Florida in the early 1920's.

My husband Daniel's family line includes Abney, Chandler, Brooks, Arbuckle, Blackwell, Turner, and Sloan. On the Abney side, the family is descended from Benjamin Abney and Elizabeth Hogan of Cobb County, Georgia. His Arbuckle ancestor, Archie, came from Lanark, Scotland.
