A Rowan County, North Carolina marriage bond, states that Margaret Trout was married to Hugh O'Neal on December 22, 1809.
Hugh O'Neal was enumerated in 1810, in Rowan County, with - one male 10-15, one male 50-60, two females 10-15, one female 50-60. Hugh O'Neal and his wife, Margaret Trout, are shown on the 1830 Census of Warren County, Tennessee; both 16-26, with one other individual at that residence.
Two events occurred between 1830 and 1850 - - the death of Hugh O'Neal and the subsequent remarriage of his widow, Margaret Trout, to Alford (Alfred) Tucker, a man 17 years her junior. An exhaustive search of Tennessee records (i.e., marriage - death - land) has not produced documentation of these events. Information is provided only through their descendants; the only documentation has come from census and cemetery records, and Bible records of Hugh and Margaret's daughter, Lovey (O'Neal) Morgan.
Alford (Alfred) and Margaret Tucker are listed on the 1840 Dyer County, Tennessee Census, along with - one male 5-10, one male 10-15, one male 15-20. Alfred's age was 20-30, Margaret's 40-50. Alford's brothers, Joseph and Elijah Tucker are neighbors. Alfred and Margaret were shown on the 1950 Dyer County Census, with only one other person in their home, a male aged 17.
Two of the children of Hugh and Margaret Trout, were married about this time - - both in Gibson County, Tennessee. Lovey O'Neal married Thomas Griffin Morgan (a widower who was a native of Virginia) June, 11, 1842; the marriage of Lavinia O'Neal to Henry Patterson (a North Carolinian who with his parents, had mad the move from Rowan County to Gibson County), March 1, 1838.
Lovey and Thomas Griffin Morgan, and Lavinia and Henry Patterson, decided to move to Arkansas, taking with them Lovey's and Lavinia's mother, Margaret, and her second Husband, Alfred Tucker. The families settled in Johnson County, Arkansas, where they spent their remaining years. Their presence is documented by the 1860 Census, which shows that Margaret and Alfred lived on property adjoining that of Lovey and Thomas Griffin.
Margaret Trout, was known to her descendants as, "Granny" Tucker. Lovey and Thomas Griffin Morgan, and "Granny Tucker are interred in the Mt. Airy Cemetery in Johnson County.
