Leo P. Tucker, a prosperous farmer of Perry County, Mo., is the son of Josiah and Sarah Tucker (see sketch of Simeon S. Tucker).
Leo P. was born in Perry County, Mo. in 1859, and was reared on his father's farm, securing a good education in the common schools. He has devoted himself to agricultural pursuits, and is now the owner of 360 acres of fine land.
He was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth McBride, a native of Perry County, who was born in 1858. Two children have been born to their union: Leo E. and Mary L. Mr. Tucker and family are respected citizens, and are zealous members of the Roman Catholic church.
The Goodspeed Publishing Company compiled a series of histories of various counties in the U.S. in the late 19th century. The information in the History of Southeast Missouri, published in 1888, was provided by the contemporary residents of Perry County and her neighboring counties. The biographies are a valuable source of genealogical information, despite a few minor inaccuracies. We are glad to present the transcribed biographies here for anyone researching Perry County's history.
