NOTES ON THE GREEN R. DUKE FAMILY by Douglas P. Reid _____Green's family settled in the Central Grove District (Armuchee) of Floyd County, near his brothers, James and David, sometime before 1860. He donated land and $90 for the Pleasant Valley North Baptist Church. His son, Martin, later gave land to the school board for a school house -- the Central Grove School or "Duke School House" -- on 19 May 1900. Julia Ann Duke's husband, William McKenzie, was a preacher at the Floyd Springs Baptist Church above Armuchee. Green R. Duke's property in 1890 consisted of 151 acres, a black mare, a mule, 2 milk cows, 5 hogs, 53 sheep, two wagons, farming and household items. He farmed cotton. Green bought the Armuchee property (160 acres) from his brother, David, on 4 December 1852. He was present in a land transaction of Thomas Duke on 6 January 1850. (Thomas was 47 in 1850, and was probably an uncle or brother). On 20 January 1862, Green R. was appointed administrator for his brother, David's, estate. In the Civil War, Green R. Duke was injured three times, and as a result, he required pain medication for the rest of his life. His tombstone inscript- ion says he was "a good man."
