TuckerResearch is from the e-mail address I chose to receive all my genealogy related material back in high school, and it sort of evolved into my screen name of choice for all scholarly topics.

I am originally from Killeen, Texas, and earned a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in History from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I wrote my master's thesis on the boomtown-turned-ghosttown of Thurber, Texas. In the fall of 2006, I started work on my Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Arlington, in the field of Transatlantic History. I completed my Ph.D. in spring 2011.[1][2] In late 2010, the Texas Tech University Press accepted my revised master’s thesis for publication. It was published as Macaroni, Oysters, and Beer: Thurber, Texas, and the Company Store in fall 2012.[3]

On the scholarly front, I've written about Thurber, Texas, La Salle, Vincenzo Coronelli, Hans Staden and Ulrich Schmidel, José de Escandón, and place-names in Mexican Texas. I am interested in the history of cartography, especially maps of the early Spanish Empire, syncretization (or creolization) of toponyms in the New World, toponymy, discovery and exploration, Gen. Samuel Cooper, and Texas history, especially during the nineteenth century.
