I'm attempting to locate Caroline WELLS who married George COLBERT before 1852.They were the parents of Matilda Evaline COLBERT b 1852, poss Illinois.She married Samuel Lemuel DUTY b 1848, Massac Co., IL -- d 1939, Mississippi Co., MO. (my husband's second great grandparents)
Samuel L. DUTY had a brother James G.A. DUTY who was born in 1862, McCracken Co., KY.I have read history on a COLBERT line (mixed race w/Choctaw Indian) in the area of McCracken Co., KY.
Any information would be greatly appreciated, Linda Cashen Gaunt
