Seeking info on a Mahala McDuffee (b. 1820 in KY.), Joseph N. McDuffee(born abt.1843 in AL.) and William McDuffee(born abt. 1845 in AL).
I find this family in the 1850 Meigs Co., TN census, but cannot trace them back any further.I do not know who Joseph or Williams father was, although on the 1880 census Joseph (who mostly went by Jasper Newton) lists that his father was born in Alabama.
I guess Mahala was born in KY and then for some reason went to Alabama and married.
