Mark Bramlette "Kansas: a cyclopedia of state history etc." (Blackmar, ed., Vol. II), mentions a S. M. Tucker of Wichita who raised "a company of 50 men for Indian service" around 1874. Is this Judge Tucker?

Mark Bramlette [external link] say: S. Morton Tucker, a native of Vermont, came to Union County, Ohio, when small, with his parents, who settled in Union Township. He read law with Cole & Coats, commencing about the summer of 1850, and was admitted to the bar in 1852. In the fall of the latter year he removed to Lewis, Cass Co., Iowa. Afterward lived at Atchison, Kan., from which place he enlisted in the army, although having some years before lost his left hand by the premature discharge of a cannon at a Fourth of July celebration at Bridgeport, Union County, a man named Simpson being badly maimed at the game time. Mr. Tucker served as a Lieutenant during the war, and afterward located at Fort Scott, Kan., where he is now engaged in the practice of his profession.
