When we visited the Ithaca area in September for my husband’s high school reunion, we spent some time in Trumansburg, and I grabbed that opportunity to take photos of some family tombstones. Am just now getting them off my phone! We shall start with the stone of Bert Tucker and Ida Lanning Tucker.
Albert “Bert” Tucker (b: 1864) was the son of Albert R. Tucker (1842-1864) and Sally Lavina Hausner (1841-1906). Bert’s father passed away the same year Bert was born. Bert’s mother, Sally Lavina, then married Charles Hubbell, but that's a story for another day.
Bert Tucker married Ida Estelle Lanning in 1883. Ida was the daughter of Horace and Ursula Lanning of Enfield, NY. Bert and Ida had three children: Neva A. (b: 1889), Ursula L. (b: 1891), and Leon H. (b: 1895).
Bert Tucker died 10 September 1916 at the age of 51. He is buried in Lot 1172, Grove Cemetery, Trumansburg, New York. Ida Estelle Tucker died 17 February 1936 and is buried alongside her husband.
