Ursula Tucker

Ursula Tucker (1891-1922) was the second child of Bert and Ida Lanning Tucker, and named for her maternal grandmother.  According to the genealogy section of the Pioneer Clevelands, Ursula never married.  This brief death notice appeared in the 31 March 1922 Interlaken Review:

“Miss Ursula Tucker, 31, died at her home on Whig Street [Trumansburg] having been ill for several days with pneumonia. She is survived by her mother, sister and brother. Funeral is Friday afternoon at the Baptist Church.”

At the time of her death she was living with her mother, Ida. Neither had an occupation listed in the 1920 census.  In 1915 Ursula’s occupation was listed as “housework.”
