Daniel Luther Duvall my grandfather born 4-1-1896/97 born in Pulaski, IL died July 4th, 1941 buried in Glen Allen, MS. He married Zeo N. Cole.
Daniel Luther's parents were Daniel Richard and Annie Tucker. Annie had died by 1900. Daniel Richard was found living with his 1/2 brother, Alex Smith (not positive on the first name) in Pulaski, also listed is Daniel L and as Alex Smith's nephew.
In 1918 Draft Reg. Daniel is listed living with John W. Duvall and lists him as employer and nearest relative, in Reeves, MO.
In 1920 Daniel L. and Zeo (Clio on census) were found living in Clay, Dunklin County, MO. No children at this time. Listed in the census above Daniel is J.W. Duvall and wife Carrie with children Rosalli, John, Lawerence, and Benjamin L.
I believe J.W. Duvall is the John listed as relative on Daniels Draft Reg. Also believed is this is John Wesley Duvall and may have been his 1/2 brother.
Rumor is Daniel R, father of Daniel L was married and had 2 children, his wife died and he married then a women that he had been in love with for years but was married to someone else. They had two children a daughter that was born before Daniel. Both mother and sister died when Daniel was very young.
I found a Daniel Duval married to Catherine in 1880 Pulaski Il census with 2 children Catherine and John. John was 6 at the time making his birth abt. 1874 which pretty much matches the 1920 census of J.W. Duvall (1875 would be the year of birth on 1920 census) where Daniel lives by him.
On the 1870 census in Pulaski county, IL. there is Wesly Duvall 53 wife Laura 54, John 22, Daniel 20, Margaret 19, Mary 1, Lee 23, Alex Smith 24. No relationships on any.
Alex Smith fits in as a half brother to Daniel R and could explain why he would name his son John Wesley.
