Hello Deborah, Margaret Jane Boulware Duffey is you gr gr grandmother.Your gr grandmother and mine (Frances Anna Freeman Lightsey) were sisters.James is not Margaret's father but her grandfather.Her father is William Boulware.She had a brother by the name of Francis Marion.They could not use the Boulware name because they were illigitmate.They did spend alot of time with their grandparents (James and Frances).I located a will at the Tallapoosa Cty courthouse (I have a copy) that names Margaret and Frances , the natural children of his son William as heirs to his estate after the death of his wife should she outlive him.He called them the natural children of his son William and therefore proves their parental heritage.I can go back quite a bit on the Boulwares, but the Duffey's are a different story.I do not know why William did not marry Elizabeth, probably because she was indian.Back then, whites and indians or white/whites, etc lived together alot and if one or the other decided to leave then there was no bond to hold them. (not legally anyway).Elizabeth D. did live with James B and his wife at some point in time, she also lived with Margaret and Henry as well.A cousin of ours (1st cousin once removed actually) has researched for over 20 years and has not been successful on locating anything on Elizabeth.Around 1840 (census) she was living with another Duffey family (spelled Duffee) their names was Elizabeth (another confusing name) with Robert and they also had a son about the same age as Marion, but Margaret was not listed with her at that time unless she was living with her grandparents.I have done a small amount of research on Robert/Elizabeth - they had several children and one of them (I think his name was also Marion) moved to Texas as an adult and became a representative in the Texas legislature and helped build a university there.It may be possible through him/siblings to locate something on our Elizabeth and again they might not even be related if the names are spelled differently.I have found that some census takers could barely write their own name much less someone else's.Their writing is very difficult to read sometimes. I think we are probably 3rd cousins.I think Elizabeth is probably buried at Eagle Creek.In one of the census's Elizabeth was listed as living with a black family, but in reality may have been indian.Some indians listed themselves as black to keep from being transported to a reservation. If you find out anything on her please let me know.If I can further help you I'll be glad to. Distant cousin Shirlene P.S. Where do you live? I'm in Marshall Cty Alabama.
