In the aftermath of these deaths, the 1910 Census shows Francis H. Tucker and his children boarding at his brother Felix Tucker’s house. A year later, however, Francis remarried to Laura Day (1876-1950). They would stay together until Tucker passed away in 1941. The whole family is buried in Nacogdoches at Oak Grove Cemetery.
The 1900 census and letterhead in the collection show that Francis H. Tucker was a partner in the Nacogdoches mercantile firm of Tucker, Zeve and Co. At some point between 1900 and 1910, Francis divested from the store and because a bank cashier, first at Angelina County National Bank and then at Commercial State Bank in Nacogdoches. He remained in this position through the at least the early 1920s. The 1930 Census lists Tucker as the Vice-President of Commercial National Bank. He was still a bank executive a decade later in the 1940 Census.
