I am searching for the parents of Phoebe Tucker. Phoebe was born in 1761. She was captured by Indians while a young mother and 4 of her children were murdered. She lived in what was Va. then but what in now WV. I am her 4th GGranddaughter. I do not have any information on her parents or brothers or sisters. She married Thomas Cunningham in 1777. Phoebe is buried in Calhoun Cty, WV. Thomas is buried in Ritchie Cty, WV. Their daughter Rachel married Isaac Sanson Collins of which I am a descendant.

Phebe Tucker was born in England in 1761. April 1775-1776 she married Thomas Cunningham at Pricketts Fort (north of Fairmont, Marion Co. West Virgina) died 1845 Calhoun Co.

Father was William Tucker. Still looking for her mothers name.

Rachel Collins had 9 childern. Which one are you related to and will you send me your pedigree from Rachel please. I am related to Adam Cunningham Jr. though Sarah Sinnett so I am putting as many of the family as I can find on the internet.

I am related to Patrick Sinnett. His son George, Sarah Cunninghams brother, had a son Samuel, who had a daughter Joanna, who had a daughter Della who married Sherman Parks, parents to my father Kenneth B. Parks. All he had was me, six grandchildren, six greatgrandchildren, to step greatgrandchildren and two step great-
greatgrandchildren. But there is no Cunninghams except for cousins. One of my grandfather's brothers married Nellie Cunningham who is related to Sarah and Adam. Another cousin married a Omar Cunningham but I haven't related him to the Cunningham family yet. Still working on that.

Will let you know if I came across when Phebe's father came to this country.

Was glad to read your information on Phoebe Tucker Cunningham. I belong to the National Daughters of the American Revolution and Phoebe is one of my Ancestors. She is listed as a Patriot in W.V. History from Ritchie Co I am a native of WV. My link to Pheobe is through Olive Rebecca Modisett McIntire my Grand Mother. She was a blood line of John C. Modisett whose first wife was Hannah E, Cunningham Osborn and a blood line of Benjamin Cunningham. His first wife was Hannah Riddle Cunningham. Benjamin was the child by blood line of Thomas Cunningham born 1748 at Dublin, Ireland and died at Hughes River, Ritchie Co. His wife was Phoebe Tucker & they married Apr. 1776 Harrison Co. now Ft.

I am also a descendant of Thomas and Phebe Tucker Cunningham, thru their dau Rachel who married Isaac Collins.
I am a DAR also but haven't used Thomas yet--I hope to do that soon but didn't realize that Phebe was considered a Patriot too. Someone else mentioned it to me and i did a search on the DAR website under Partiot look-up and she was not listed. Has she just been accepted recently? It would be great to use her too.
