Many volunteers have worked very hard to provide the researchers
of Jefferson County a listing of Cemeteries and to provide pictures
of headstones to help you in your personal research.
So please do not take the cemetery listings and pictures
that others have worked so hard to provide and add it
to any other website as your own.
for understanding and respecting
the work of others.

Tucker, Jacob C. 1845 1916
Jacob C. Tucker (1845-1917) lived in Ocean Springs, Mississippi from circa 1905 to circa 1916.
A native of Alabama and Civil War veteran.
He expired on November 18, 1917 at Ensley, Alabama the home of a daughter. His
corporal remains were sent to the Opdyke Cemetery for internment.
Listing for this cemetery has his death year as 1916. Maybe his
tombstone was erected years after his passing and the family?
forgot the year???
