In my research of the DUFF family I found a reference to the following: Jane DUFF born 9 Mar 1800 m. in 1825 Francis Apperson. They had one child: Randolph Walker APPERSON born about 1826 he m. Drucilla WHITMIRE, they had a child Pheobe Elizabeth APPERSON born in 1843.She m. in 1862 George HURST (HEARST), they had a child, William Randolph HEARST born 1863 and died in 1951 he m. in 1903 Millicent WILLSON. They had five children the fifth was Randolph Apperson HEARST born 1915 and M. Catherine (?), they had five children one of which was Patty HEARST. These families orginated in Clay/Wayne Co., IL. I did no further research on these families and cannot verify the authenticiy of the above information.
