About Reason Penelope Tucker

Age: [40] First and Fourth Reliefs

b. abt 1807 in Culpepper, VA m1. 08 Jan 1828 to Delia Compton m2. abt 1840 to Mary Coleman m3. 1856 to Elizabeth Newman m4. 1875 to Mary Thompson d. 02 May 1888 in Goleta, Santa Barbara Co., CA

      Overland emigrant of 1846; member of the Smith Company, with which the Graves family had traveled. Tucker served with the Donner rescue efforts for 39 days and earned $117.00.
      A granddaughter described Tucker as "six feet three inches tall, very strong, and heavy weight," a man of great determination and always friendly and kind. Louis Keseberg said that Tucker was the only member of the Fourth Relief who showed him any compassion.
      Like many other 1846ers, Tucker settled in the upper Napa Valley, across the road from M. D. Ritchie, but in 1872 lost his extensive holdings when the contract he had entered into in 1848 was declared invalid. He moved to Santa Barbara County and started over. When he died in 1888, Tucker had outlived three of his four wives, by whom was the father of ten children.
