Carrie Tucker

Carrie (Tucker) Beardsley

Carrie, born in Enfield, NY on 10 January 1866 was the oldest daughter of William Lanning and Fanny Adelia (Hosner) Tucker. 

In November of 1886 she married Frank J. Beardsley. They made their home in the town of Hector, just west of the Mecklenburg town line.  Carrie and Frank had three children: Herbert b: February 1888, Mabel b: April 1890, and Olive b: January 1894.

The year 1916 was difficult for Carrie.  In January her son Herbert fractured his leg while jumping from a wagon on the farm he was working.  On 9 April 1916 Carrie’s mother passed away.  Carrie, along with her sisters Jessie Agard and Olive Rightmire then shared in the care of their father, William Lanning Tucker.

Besides keeping house, raising her children, and helping to care for her dad, Carrie stayed busy with the Mecklenburg Grange and Study Club. 

Carrie (Tucker) Beardsley died at her home on 7 December 1932 after a long illness. She is buried alongside her husband in the Mecklenburg NY cemetery.

Please note that Carrie’s birth date in the Rootsweb/Ancestry online index for this cemetery is incorrect by a year.
