Random Person of the Day - Francis Tuckey

The random number generator already managed a duplicate after only a few installments of Random Person of the Day.  But instead of discussing Arthur M. Tomlinson again, we'll move on to Francis Tuckey.

Francis "Frank" Tuckey was the brother of my 4x great grandpa, Charles Tuckey.  I don't have much information on him.  According to research done by my cousin, he was born in 1835 and died in 1912.  He married twice, to Mary Ann Graham and Janet Clark.  I don't have his children written down, but if he was like the rest of the Tuckey clan he procreated with gusto.  He was the son of Charles Thomas Tuckey, native of Middleton Cheney, Northhamptonshire, England who immigrated with his parents and brothers to the US, arriving in New York on 19 Dec 1823, and then moved on to Ontario, settling in the London area.  His wife, the mother of Francis, was Mary Burgess.

Note on photos:  I don't mind if you wish to save a copy of the photos on this blog, but as most of them are original scans of personal family photos I would appreciate if you credited the source.
