Mary Elizabeth Tucker was born on 20 October 1882 in Carsonville, Michigan, and was the fifth of six children born to Henry and Elizabeth (Maynard) Tucker (Henry later had one child with his second wife after his first wife died). An early photo of Mary (standing) with her older sister, Alice (Alice died in 1899 five years after this photo was taken).
Mary married Charles Adelbert Tucker (no relation) on 17 December 1903 at Carsonville and they moved to Detroit soon after. photo of Mary and her son, Cecil, in the back yard of one of their homes in Detroit. Also in this photo is Mary's half-sister, Grace, who was 15 years younger than Mary. Grace was the child of Mary's father, Henry, and his second wife, Rachel Cleland. Rachel died when Grace was one year old old, and Henry remarried a third time. Because of real or perceived conflict with her step-mother, Grace stayed with Mary's family for extended periods of time.

After moving to Bad Axe in 1915 they had two more children. Dorothy was born in 1917 and Grace was born in 1923. They had rented several homes in Detroit and Bad Axe but in the early 1940's Mary and Charles bought a house at 306 S. Port Crescent St. in Bad Axe, which was the only house they ever owned. Only a few years later (1943) Charles died at the age of 61. By the early 1950's Mary had moved back to Detroit (665 Willis Ave.) and got a job as a seamstress for Crowley's Department Store (Crowley, Milner & Co.) in downtown Detroit.
