Query: My Duke lineage. Mary Duke born 1740 in Jefferson, Fairfax, Virginia married John Gordon born 1739 in Baltimore County, Maryland. They married 5 June 1760 in Frederick County Maryland. Mary died 1789 in Green County, Pennsylvania and John died 9 March 1816 in Green County, Pennsylvania.
The parents of Mary Duke are William Duke born 4 September 1712 at Hayes Farm Jefferson, Fairfax, Virginia and died 21 January 1793 in Warren, North Carolina. William Duke was married to Mary Green born 1720 in Brunswick, Virginia and died 7 Jan 1794 in Warren, North Carolina. They married 1724 in Brunswick, Virginia.
Next I have William (Raleigh?) Duke born 1701 in James City, Virginia and died on 1775 in Bute, Granville, North Carolina on. He married Thamar Taylor (not sure of this). Thamar Taylor was born 1703 in Brunswick, Virginia and died about 1737 in Brunswick, Virginia. I may have the date of William Duke’s birth incorrect.
Does any of the above information follow the Duke lineage? I desire correspondence with anyone working on the Duke lineage. I would like to contact those researching the Duke linage in North Carolina and Virginia.
