This page is intended to introduce a series of linked genealogical articles about my ancestry. Here's a tidbit to get started: The picture on the left shows my great-grandfather, Charles Abram Stuck (1832-1898), as he looked about 1890. Click his image to see a brief chronology of him. On the right is my great-grandmother, Margaret Ann McCullough (1837-1925), as she looked about 1900. In time, clicking on her image will link you to a page of further information on her. Freenet limits homepage storage to 200Kb so I am unable to offer larger versions of these pictures. If you just HAVE to see them, they are available on my Geocities site.
Charles and Margaret came to Jonesboro, AR, from Illinois in February 1889, bringing with them their family lumber company, C. A. Stuck & Sons. The two sons were Elmer Charles (1866-1937) and Will R (1872-1942), shown on the right as they looked in a Christmas 1902 promotion poster. The company continued to be an important factor on Jonesboro's industrial scene until January 1957 when the remaining grandson in the business sold it.
I grew up working in that lumber company in the 1930's and saw pictures of these three men over the bookkeepers' "bull pen" every time I came into the office. It only occurred to me that they were my ancestors years later when I became interested in genealogy.
