In Reply to: Re: JAMES DUKE & RACHEL LINDLEY/LYNDLEY by Bill Dukeof 3948
I am direct descendent of William Duke, son of James and Rachael. My GM is a Duke, daughter of Harrison Duke and Mahalie Elizabeth Prattof Itawamba Co MS. I have extensive records on this family. My William married Harriett Pearce in 1834. Family records state that James and Rachael were married in Franklin Co, Al in 1808. William Duke was born 20 Dec 1811 in Franklin Co. and died in Tishomingo Co MS 29 March 1868. His gf William Duke who married Jane McLaughlin is buried in the Duke-Flats Cemetery. There was speculation for years which was published in the Itawamba Co newspapers about his tombstone. The Dukes, Lindeys, Dukes and Metcalfs were together in Franklin Co Tenn and later the Dukes, Lindleys, Pearces and Metcalfs were together in Franklin Co and Marion Co Al. The Dukes, Pearces and Bankards were also together in Union Co SC. So the families lived together in many different counties. My records are concentrated on William and his brother James who married another Pearce (Abigail Margaret). Do not think there is proof that Major Duke had sons. Do you have proof?
Looks like we may be able to pool our data between the 3 of us to put his line together. Thanks, Barbara
