I don't know if any of your Ruckers' are related to me. But I am from Kentucky. My maiden name is Rucker. My father was born in Defoe Kentucky and His father Was Benjamin Franklin Rucker. His father was Plate Rucker, and they all lived in Henry County, kentucky. I have information where the Ruckers started out in Germany then went to England. They were given land in Virginia. From there they spread out in Tenn., an Kentucky. Alot of the names I have are James Rucker and John Rucker. There were a couple of Baptist preachers in there too. If any of this sounds familiar or even sounds like the Ruckers you have information on please let me know. Would love to here from you.
