I doubt I will be much help, as well.I should have looked at it more closely, before my first reply.This is what I have:
I was given info that a Melinda Ellen Duty (b. 26 Jan 1900) was never married. I somehow found a death date of 14 Jun 1931.
However, when I was researching the 1900 Census.AJ & Martha Duty had 9 of 11 children still living.Listed was a daughter named Malinda C. Duty born May 1891.This listed Malinda matches up with the name Lydia Katherine Duty born 25 May 1891, I was given originally.
So, hopefully this Malinda is who you are looking for.This Mailinda/Lydia married Pat Napier.
The whole Duty side from AJ/Martha up is kinda of a mystery.Supposedly, the last name was Davis prior to AJ or his father.
Was one of the people you were in contact named Edith Jenkins?You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
