I only know that our family was out of an Ambrosia Rucker ancestor from Virginia that transported to Ga. Slaves were transported with them. That is where My family came in. My grand father was a Thomas Rucker(wife Gladys),my father was a Clarence rucker (wife Lillie), and I am Rev Dr Clarence Rucker. My grandfather's brother was Henry Rucker (appointed by president Mckinley as the first African American tax assesor of Ga.) Yes we do look white, but with color. Can "one" help?

I must add. The Rucker I am speaking of also belongs to a Rucker that owned a graet Bonanza in Ga and squandered it. This is information came through the generation lines.

I am interested in knowing how to see the will of one of those listed in the 'Richmond Co GA Wills 1770-1798-Quakers'. He is Thomas Connell son of Daniel Connell. Please email me how I can obtain or find this will of my ancestor. Daniel was a Revolutionary War Veteran & Justice of Peace in Louisville, Jefferson Co., GA. Thanks for any help to lead me to this Will.

I found my beginning heritage from a place called Elbert county in Georgia. I came through the linage of Amos Rucker. He was a black confederate soldier with his master at the time, Sandy Rucker. The others stayed with the daddy of Sandy, Joseph Rucker. Joseph was one of the richest in the land of Ga. and squandered it. Amos had a son named, Thomas. Thomas Rucker married Bessie (Stafford)? and had a son named Clarence. Through the Rucker family, I now know how we all got our fair complexion. Amos, Thomas, Clarence, Henry, Tommy, and myself, Clarence Jr and off springs are black with fair skin. These are all Ruckers. I am sure if you are white and a Rucker that lives in Elbert County, Ga, we are relatives. You can find me on my site, or
