Looking for Tucks of Halifax County, Va and North Carolina

Journal by Barbara68

My Family Tree has over 17,000 names. My main research is the Tucks (my maiden name) with Chronister, then Taylor and Sanders of NC, Hefferons from Ireland and upstate NY, Meisers from upstate NY, and many, many more. I'm trying to close a lot of gaps and correct a lot of errors in my tree. Currently I'm looking for more information on James Monroe Chronister (died between 1920-1930 in Mecklenburg County Va), Martha Wilkinson Tuck who died 1896 (wife of Powell Tuck) and the Hefferons who immigrated from Ireland and lived in upstate New York.

Thanks very much. I have all the information that you have mentioned on James Monroe Chronister. What I can't find is a death certificate, or where he is buried.
I'm new on this site and just posted my basic research names. I'll be posting more as I get familiar with this site.

Hi Noggin, I have Martha Chronister's death certificate. It says she is buried in Clarksville but there are multiple cemeteries there. I suspect she is buried at a small church that has been inactive since about 1990. Nobody seems to have any records. However, my other great grandparents are buried there, and I believe the Chronisters are buried there too. I have to try and locate a death certificate for James Monroe Chronister to see if it is more specific about the burial. But, Vital Records did not find a death certificate even though he died between 1920-1930. They suggested I go to the state library to check the microfilm as there may be death certificates there. This small church is, technically, in Clarksville. But the Chronisters were living near the church when James Monroe died. So, looks like some legwork for me.
