Martin P. Rucker

by Edmund Starling, 1886


The subject of this sketch is the youngest son of Nancy Burks and Tinsley Rucker, of Virginia, who, in early life, was a prominent tobacco dealer in Richmond. Many years ago, Mr. Rucker removed to Henderson from Jefferson County, and engaged in business; of latter years, he has led a farmer's life. Unto him and his wife (Miss Kate Funk), there have been born six children, four of whom are now living, Thomas G., John F., Laura H., and Martin P. Thomas G. married Miss Belle Brown, of Daviess County, and they have five children, Mary, Lulie, Charley, James and Lee. Laura H. married William Rudy, of McLean County, and they have seven children, Harry, William, Mary, Kate, Rosa, Bessie and Martin. John F. and Martin are unmarried. The subject of this sketch is a man of noble impulses, a good neighbor and friend. His wife is the embodiment of womanly goodness.
