Civil War Shadows in Hopkins County, Texasby June E. Tuck

June England Tuck was an author, genealogist, and local historian from Sulphur Springs, Texas. She was born on June 23, 1933, on a cotton farm in Midlothian, Texas to parents Barney and Ora England. She grew up in Texarkana, Texas and married her husband, Bill Tuck, on July 22, 1950.

The couple moved to Sulphur Springs, Texas after Bill returned from Korea where they opened a small jewelry and watch repair business.  The Tucks were active within the community. June Tuck served on the charter committees for the Hopkins County Museum and Veterans Memorial Marker.  She was a member of the Hopkins County Genealogical Society and regularly assisted others with their family research.

Mrs. Tuck devoted her life to researching and preserving the history of Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County.  Inspired by her research of the Federal Stockade located in Sulphur Springs after the Civil War, she compiled Civil War Shadows in Hopkins County, Texas, which is a collection of reproduced primary sources related to Hopkins County and Hopkins County soldiers in the war. 

Mrs. Tuck died on March 19, 2015.  https://archives.tamuc.edu/repositories/2/resources/49
