Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired US Army Colonel and disabled but that doesn't mean I am unable to help descendants find their ancestors.

Since my retirement, I've also begun doing genealogical research with both my American and Asian roots. Quite fascinating journey into the past. I'm currently researching the following surnames: Abad, Aquino, Concon, Borden, Buttery, Cole, Duvall, Howard, Hawkins, Kirby, Roxas,Spears, Tully, Wells, Wyatt and Wooten.

E.K. Myers
Didema Tully
Didema is the Grandmother to Blan Clavern Cole, who is my great-grandfather. Renee Champion-Myers (my bio Mother)->Gloria Jean Champion-Cole (Grandmother)->Blan Clavern Cole (Glorias Dad-Glorias Mom: Gladys Mckiney)->Sarah Tennessee Tully (Blans Mother)->Didema Jane Tully (Blan's Grandmother). She would be my great-great-great-grandmother? Have you heard of Gloria Jean Cole? She was born 09/28/1928, per her birth certificate. I have very limited information, due to my Mom dying when I was young. I didn't inherit any photos or information and am starting from scratch.

Thank you for your service, sir!

Sorry about double post, jumpy fingers.
Thanks for the Transfer of Elizabeth and for the corrections.
From looking at my dates, I still have some corrections to do. I am just getting back to the Duvalls after 20 or so years, thanks to you and the DNA stuff.

Hi, I received a notice informing me of a photo request being fulfilled, but I am unable to see any photo of the grave on this memorial page. If you have access to it I'd love to see it.
Thank you for your time,

John Duvall of Massac Co IL
Thanks for the info. Okay our John's are different, however why is Doshey/Docia's will recorded in Massac Co, IL and not Scott Co, KY?
I cannot get to the links for your tree it just takes me to Ancestry. I have been a member over 15 years. Also you mention the Ancestry link for Lucy H. Craine. Is she on your tree also. I can find her by name probably. I will look up the KY sources you refer to if I can find them.
I am third term Registrar for our DAR chapter here, and past Registrar for the Colonial Dames 17th Century. So I research pretty much 24/7 in this area. Most of my folks are the Caldwell Co, Graves Co, Livingston Co. people. I am from McCracken Co.KY.

RE: John Duvall and Docia Gregory
WE have the same line, Mareen 3 and Sarah Griffith, Benjamin and Anne Griffity, Lewis and Jemima, Elisha and Luch H. Craine, John Duvall Sr and 1st wife Polly Wheeler, and Matilda Duvall marr William Winters. Matilda is sister of your Harvey.
You have done quite a lot of research but I really don't download others information. I am happy to share my sources.
My real question is your death and interments of John and Doshey/Docia Gregory in Georgetown KY.
I live 20 minutes from the Gtown Cem and have photographed that cemetery. Are you saying they are in Gtown Cem on Rt 25? I will go there and check the office for a record unless you already have their interment record. Both John and Doshey/Docia have wills in Massac Co, IL, and Doshey/Docia is in the 1850 Massac Co, IL census.

CENSUS: 1850 IL, Massac, taken 21 Sep 1850, Family 431/431:Docia DUVALL, age 60, female, worth 200 ?, born VA
Samuel C. age 22, male, born VA
Elizabeth, age 7 (probably a grandchild, a twin of John Duvall age 7, dau of J. W. and Ann Family 430/430 above on census), born KY.
Why would they be buried in Gtown, Scott Co, KY if their family is in Massac and Livingston and Caldwell Co, KY? I am happy to change my records if they are in error but I need a source for the Georgetown burials. Appreciate your patience.

John Duvall and Docia Gregory
Hi, I think we have our John Duvall's nixed up. You have a Col. John and Docia/Doshy Gregory Duvall buried in Scott Co, KY.
Maybe this is your Duvall's I don't know.
But the son of Lewis Duvall and Jemima unk as far as I know is John Duvall who died bef Oct 1847 in Massac Co, IL and married Docia Gregory.
Their estate is in the basement of the Massac Co, IL courthouse in a metal box I found many years ago.
WILL.Docia Duvall's estate papers filed 9 Nov 1857, in Box 96, Massac Co IL Courthouse, in the basement in metal box at Metropolis.
Estate of John Duvall Sr (husband) in Book B pg 83 Massac Co IL, October 1847.
I probably have copy in file. There is probably only one Docia Gregory who married a John Duvall. We should probably sort them out.

What is the adoption find a grave? If I sent you the money and information, would you supervise the placing of a head stone for me?
I live over here close to Ft Stewart, almost impossible for me to get there. Jan
