Thanks for the reply and sorry that it took so long to get back to you.
Here is my problem. I can find no record of a Samuel Duvall in North Carolina before 1830. I have the list printed at home and can give you more specifics if needed. On all the census information for Samuel's children, they are listed as being born in North Carolina. However, I have the death certificate for one of Samuel's grandchilren (Ambrose, oldest son of James, son of Samuel and Polly). James is listed on Ambrose's death certificate as being born in Maryland.
I am a person who is more inclined to believe family provided info over census info, where a lot was assumed sometimes.
What can you tell me about the Samuel's you have for North Carolina???
