Turner; Duty; Hazlet; Scott; Grady; Brown Families in Early Texas

In reply to:
DUTY/Eliza J. Haslet; GRADY/Lidia Hazlett; SCOTT/Mariah Hazelet  Orphans???
Sheryl Williams 10/20/07
I believe it is quite possible that these orphan's are the children of Samuel Hazlet and Elizabeth Duty.I suspect that Elizabeth is the sister of Joseph Duty and their parents were Solomon Duty and Susannah Thirsta Witmore (d/o Joseph Whitmire).
While this is not my direct line, I would love to learn more about this family.

http://genforum.genealogy.com/hazlett/messages/970.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/hazlett/messages/970.html The Eliza J. Hazlet listed there is possibly my great great Grandmother. She was born in 1837 possibly in Texas, but I never found any proof of that. Her Mother's name is Elizabeth Duty born in Tennessee. Her father's name was Samuel Hazlet born in Pennsylvania. I never could make the connection on how they got there until I found your post. Eliza goes on to have two marriages. One to James L. Smith from Louisiana and another to a Ratliff. I am descended from one of the Ratliff daughters.
