This project will include all of the descendants of immigrant Peter Rucker as well as African-American families bearing the Rucker name. We will attempt to discover and verify the ancestry of Peter Rucker, a Huguenot immigrant to Virginia who was naturalized in 1704. Any Rucker descendants or researchers are welcome to join this project.
We respect the work of the Rucker Family Society; their website is http://www.theruckerfamilysociety.org/
NOTE FROM CURATOR (Pam Wilson): I am starting by trying to just get all the assorted duplicate profiles merged into one. I'm finding that the dates provided for people vary WIDELY--they are "all over the place" and seem to reflect a lack of common sourcing. So (1) first, we will merge everyone into the single unified Rucker tree based on getting the correct people placed under the correct parents and married to the correct spouses, then (2) we will work on researching and verifying data about each person--dates and locations of birth and death, marriage(s), children, and adding archival data to their master profiles.
We welcome anyone who would like to help with this. If interested, please "follow" this project and contact Pam Wilson, Managing Curator.
