Re: Elizabeth Duty ,GGG grandmother
Guy, I am a descendant of Elizabeth "Betsy" Duty and Micajah Smith. I cannot prove the following so I really should not be speculating on these facts;however, I think that Elizabeth and her sister Carolinewere the daughters of Thomas Duty and Martha Brantley, daughter of Joseph Brantley of Chatham Co., NC.I think after Martha's death in the late 1700's the little girls came to Washington Co., GA with their Brantley relatives and the Colby Smith family. I do not believe that Thomas Duty ever came to GA. The only part that can be proved is that both the Brantley and Smith families came from Chatham Co., NC.
