Deputy US Marshal G. R. Tucker

Last year I put the manuscript aside on lawman George Redman Tucker as it needed a rewrite. Since that time I plunged into a new project on a Texas Banker and Cattleman named Connell.
A few weeks ago I received a call from a man named Justin, a retired Railroad engineer and he told me his father gave him a book "Banditti of the Plains" and a .32 caliber, pearl handled boot gun and his father told him that he was a grandson of George and he received the items from his mother. He sent some great photos of the pistol. Justin does not know anything about his Tucker ancestor.
I had been looking for a good photo of George but always came up zero. Well, George had a daughter and the daughter had a daughter who lived in OK City and worked for the construction company who built the Naval Air Station at Norman. Then, she had a daughter and she donated a good photo of George to the archives in OK City.
Being I am constantly being drawn back to the Tucker MS I accepted an offer from a friend to help me do a complete biography on this "Invincible Marshal" (A quote from a news article) Of course we both must continue with current projects but hope to get this to a publisher in 2015.
I just wanted to point out that you never know where your research will lead and find.
