GUNN, URBANTKE posted by Becky Miller on Thursday, August 3, 2000

I am also looking for the URBANTKE branch of my family tree. My grandfather's name was Wilhelm Friedrich URBANTKE, and was born September 5, 1893 in Neisse, Germany. I am looking for information about his parents Wilhelm URANTKE and (Anna) Bertha PreiBner (Preissner). They migrated to the USA 1894 - 1897? I have found information about Great Aunt Margaret who lived in CT. That's the extent of my knowledge, so if you have any information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

SIMMONS, TUCKER, WHITE posted by Bettye B. Wester on Friday, September 1, 2000

I am looking for information on Benjamin H. TUCKER, Lonnie A. TUCKER, Mattie SIMMONS TUCKER. Lonnie and Benjamin are buried in Savannah, Ga at Hillcrest Cemetary.Benjamin was my great grandfather and his wife was Mary Cynthia WHITE TUCKER whom my sister and I are named after. Does anyone have any information on where Mary Cynthia WHITE TUCKER was from or any of her family? Does anyone know where Mattie SIMMONS TUCKER was from? It is believed that she died young. She was my real father's mother. At one time it was thought that she may have been from Hawkinsville, Ga and later moved to Savannah, Ga after marrying Lonnie Archie TUCKER. Lonnie was a street car conductor in Savannah and was killed in the line of duty by a streetcar before I was born in 1938. My father was a only child and then Lonnie remarried and had four (4) other children that resided in Savannah. The two half sister and brother can't recall where Mattie or Mary Cynthia WHITE was from. Mary Cynthia may have been from Hawkinsville also. Savannah, Ga is located in Chatham county, Georgia. Any information that anyone may have on the missing links will be greatly appreciated. I have heard that the surname SIMMONS may be of Indian Hertiage. It was with great interest that a couple of years ago I read that dentist may be able to tell if you are a descendant of Indian hertiage by examing the teeth (jaw) to see if a cusp was on the back jaw teeth. I have also been told by Native American's that the front teeth may roll somewhat or a little.. I don't know if this is true or not, but it is quite interesting. Has anyone heard of this before? I believe that my father's mother may have had Native American hertiage along the line. My grandfather's brother was also a medical doctor that at one time had a medical practice in the old Desoto Hotel in Savannah, Ga before moving to Tucson, Arizona and setting up his medical practice there. His wife was from Tenn and it is believe that he died in 1981 and is buried in Tenn somewhere. I don't know where he attended medical school.
