    [carl-fowler.FTW] NOTES ON CHARLES DUKE AND HIS FAMILY by Douglas P. Reid._____________________ __ _____

    Charles had a son by a first marriage who was a small boy in 1800 and witnessed his wedding to Nancy Elliott. Charles lived near the young families of James, Robert, and William Duke in Walton Co., Georgia in the 1820's. These men, as well as men named Thomas Duke and David Duke (son of John P. Duke) were probably all closely related to him; all except Robert appear on land records together with Charles. When Charles bought land from Henry White of Clarke County in 1826 - land adjacent to William Beard - Thomas and James Duke acted as testators. (These men both may be his sons or brothers). In 1830, Charles Duke is shown in Morgan County, while his son James was in Walton County where he had married Minerva Hightower in 1829.________________ _____

    Charles Duke seems to be related to John P. Duke who died in 1829 in Morgan County. Charles was at the estate sale, and later, drew for the orphans of John P. Duke in a land lottery in 1832. Other Duke relatives at this sale were Edmuond Duke (administrator), Thomas Duke, Sr. (son of John Taylor Duke), Thomas Duke, and John Duke, Sr.

    ________________________________ _____The commonality of these men show that most of them were descended from the same family of John Taylor Duke, son of Captain Henry Duke and Elizabeth Taylor of Prince George County, Virginia. (The "tobacco Dukes" were also descended from John Taylor Duke). John Taylor Duke and his sons, Henry, Thomas, James, and Edmond moved to Georgia (Wilkes Co.) in the 1770's and 80's. These son were in their forties by then, with families of their own. It is known that Henry and Thomas both had sons named Charles Duke. Our Charles Duke was likely the son of James, Edmond, Thomas, or possibly Henry, and the grandson of John Taylor Duke. (See Evelyn Duke Brandenberger's "The Duke Family" for more on these men and their ancestry). _____

    The records are silent as to where Charles Duke was in 1840. He was probably in Floyd County. By then his son, David D. Duke, and Thomas Duke, (who may also have been his son) were in Floyd. Thomas and David had married sisters - Mary Ann and Martha White - in Walton County in 1829 and 1835. By the 1850's Charles and Nancy along with James, John, Nancy, and her husband (whom she married in Floyd County in 1842). David, and Green R. were all in Floyd County, along with Thomas Duke. Thomas left soon after 1850. The children of Thomas Duke (born about 1803), and Mary Ann White (born about 1807), who married in Walton County on 2 August 1829, were Martha (b-1830), James R. (b-1833), Mary A. (b-1835), Lousana (b-1837), Charles M. (b-1849), David W. (b-1843), Edmond I. (b-1845), and John T. (b-1849)._________________ _____

    James Duke was appointed Administrator of Charles Duke's estate on 7 April 1856. Charles was remembered as a "big, stout, tall man," and was knwn to his grandchildren as "Grand-Sir."____________________________________
