Information on the Tucker family in Syracuse, NY 1850-1910

Classification: Query
Surnames: McGrath, Fleming,
I am hitting a wall getting more information on my mothers family. I have traced it back three generations to Syracuse, NY. To one James B. Tucker born ~1838 in Ireland, Immigrated to NY in 1850, was naturalized in 1850 and married his wife Margaret in 1873. From some Syracuse newspaper clippings I found that he was Superintendent at St. Agnes Cemetery until he died in 1902. Then his son Peter Joseph Tucker took over as Superintendent of St. Agnes Cemetery until he died in 1908.
James B. Tucker was married to Margaret McGrath also from Ireland born I believe ~1848. I know that James B. Tucker and his wife and his son Peter and his wife Loretta are buried at St. Agnes Cemetery. There is a family plot there.
I have tried several times to talk to the woman at St. Agnes that I am told can help me locate their gravestones but she is always gone when I call. I am very close to making the leap across the pond back to Ireland but lack the information on James B. Tucker and his Wife such as an accurate birthdate, date of death, birthplace in Ireland, etc. Does anyone have any information about the Tuckers buried there at St. Agnes or perhaps information on the parents of James B, Bartholomew Tucker and Bridget Fleming, or his wifes parents, Patrick McGrath and Mary McGrath who I have a hunch are also buried at St. Agnes.

Any information at all would be very helpful and I would be very grateful!

Chris
