All I know is that he is from the line of James.  Ancestry puts him as the son of Augustine (Rucker-45).  But the dates aren't quite right.

The year of birth may be wrong. According to this book on the Rucker Family genealogy, he was born in about 1776 and died in 1848. Father is unlisted. Grandfather presumed to be [[Rucker-43|James Rucker]]

I posted a couple of sources to the profile - 1850 census and 1853 death record.
