I am sorry for your loss of Betty. She was such a giving person and very generous with her genealogy research. On two occasions, she shared her knowledge of our Tucker ancestors (my maternal grandmother was Lela Tucker Eskridge), helping me identify photos of family and the location of the Deerford School. Betty was a treasure for genealogy information.
