- Tucker Lucas Ford was born in Scotia, Alabama on May 2nd, 1832 to Emmanuel and Tennessee Ford. He was a member of the B51 Regiment (the buffalo soldier). We know very little about his parents Emmanuel and Tennessee Ford. It is likely that he was born into slavery as he was born before Slavery ended. He married Clarinda Ashley Ford in 1867 in Mt. Meigs, Alabama at their home. After Clarinda's death he married Catherine Pearce Ford in October of 1893. To this union no children were born. A Rev. Parker in Montgomery Alabama Married Tucker and Catherine Ford.
We have not been able to determine the time of death of Tucker Lucas Ford. He had however signed an official government document on May 16, 1915, so we can say that he lived to be eighty-three (83) years old or older. On the same document he stated that he had 78 grandchildren at that time.
Little is known about Clarinda Ashley Ford. According to official historical records, she was first married to Stephen Spears and died on November 30, 1887.
