Mark Bramlette Obituary of Stillman Tucker (from an undated newspaper clipping) Stillman Tucker was a native of Vermont, was an elder in the church of Lower Liberty six years, was also an elder in the church of Central College, while pursuing his studies there under the care of the Presbytery of Franklin, as a candidate for the ministry, and was licensed to preach in April, 1850. He preached to the churches of Liberty and Little Mill Creek, and was ordained by the Presbytery in April, 1852. He continued his labors in Little Mill Creek church about a year, then supplied the church of Ashley two years, moved to Linn Co., Iowa, in 1855, as a Home Missionary, and died in afflictive circumstances, while from home seeking medical aid, at Freeport, Ill., Nov. 16, 1856. He had been dismissed from the Presbytery, but had not joined any other ecclesiastical body. He was a good man and a devoted Christian minister. H. S. The places mentioned in the obituary without mentioning a state are evidently in Ohio. There is a picture of him here at ancientfaces in the photographs section. When Stillman Tucker died, he left his three daughters from a previous marriage, and two daughters and a son from his current marriage to the care of his wife, born Margaret S. Loy. The first three were Mariah Tucker (Mrs. Blodgett), Elizabeth Tucker (also Mrs. Blodgett) and Hellen Tucker (Mrs. Rice). The later three were Mary Tucker, Phebe Olive Tucker (Mrs. Collins), and John Foster Tucker.

Mark Bramlette This newspaper clipping from around 1902, New London, Connecticut, mentions Mrs. Robert B. Crocker, W. L. Hawkins, Eugene B. Lawrence, Abel P. Tanner, and my grandfather, John Foster Tucker. It recounts a gathering of church members to thank their minister. GOLD LINED BOOK FOR PASTOR TUCKER PRESENTATION BY UNITARIAN CHURCH AND AFFILIATED SOCIETIES AT RECEPTION The reception tendered Rev. J. F. Tucker last evening in Unity Hall by his friends was a very pleasant affair. About 200 people were present, representing members of the Unitarian society, Women's Alliance and Unity Club. The Unity Club's card tables were arranged about the hall and a large table in the center was prepared for the officers of the club and the honorary guests. Previous to the serving of refreshments entertainment was furnished by the Unity orchestra of four pieces, which gave several selections, and solos by Mrs. Robert B. Crocker and Mrs. Spiera. Both the soloists were encored and warmly applauded by the appreciative audience. Young women of the club served ice cream and cake to those present and when these had been enjoyed the feature of the evening was sprung. First Vice President Eugene B. Law rence introduced President W. L. Hawkins who presented Rev. J. F. Tucker a prettily bound volume of the Cape Cod Ballads. President Hawkins said he was delegated by the members of the Unitarian society, Women's alliance and Unity club to present this gift, which Mr. Tucker would receive in the spirit in which it was given, which was that of appreciation of Mr. Tucker's work among the people. The fact that there was an envelope containing $102 inside the volume was not apparent from the outside. Rev. Mr. Tucker replied ap- appropriately to the presentation, wishing all present might have as good a time as he anticipated having in the reading of the ballads, and thanking the people for the gift. President Hawkins then introduced Abel P. Tanner to address the gathering. Mr. Tanner said that there had been an air of mystery about President Hawkins for some days, which reminded him of the story of the minister who was called to pray at a Masonic function. The minister was opposed to secret orders, but could not well refuse to offer prayer and he did so in the following words: ”Oh Lord we pray for something, we know not what. If it's good, bless it; if it's bad, cuss it, world without end, Amen.” Mr. Tanner then recalled the first time he met Rev. Mr. Tucker about six years ago. Mr. Tucker then came into his office without ceremony and began talking in the incisive way natural to him. When he went out, Mr. Tanner said to himself, there is a straight-for ward, candid man, who will always say what he means. Years had passed since then and he had become better acquainted with Mr. Tucker. He had sometimes differed with him, though always pleasantly, and he was glad the world was not all like, for if it were we should perish on the dead level of uniformity. Never during these years had Mr. Tanner had occasion to change or revise the judgment pronounced on first meeting Mr. Tucker. He knew Mr. Tucker was wishing he would not speak in this way and that the latter would like to choke him off, but Mr. Tucker was not in perfect command on the present occasion. It is not often than the opportunity to eulogize a man is given before the man's death, and the speaker was going to take this opportunity lest he be unable at another time. Mr. Tanner said: “There sits in your midst of citizen of this town who would take his coat off and give it to a man in need or would give his last dollar that some suffering man might have food. I am glad there are a few such men. I don't know that charity is always best, as those who are always helped lost the power to help themselves, but it is well there are some men of Mr. Tucker's class. If there is another world where charity is remembered and virtue is rewarded, these men will there wear crowns.” After these remarks the affair became informal and those present greeted Mr. Tucker. A general social session completed the evening, and at last a number of the members gathered about the piano and sang college and other songs.

Mark Bramlette Thank you for posting. I will call the family that has those original references now. The letter to Bertha I mentioned above has the date Dec. 12, 1948, not 1848. Bertha was born in 1872. Sorry for the typo.

Mark Bramlette Please let me clarify. Captain Dosè is the officer on the left, with four stripes on his sleeve. His career was distinguished and long. I am, or I was, the youngster on the right in the picture. My career was brief and insignificant. M. Bramlett
