Re: Duddy - Thomas C. or George William

As you asked, I’ve gone through the very detailed book on the Grainger family written by Agnes Groome (nee Mills) and published in 2000. She did a tremendous amount of work collecting stories on all of the individuals mentioned in the book – as well as some well documented historical research on the dates. If you want to know more you should contact her at Box 1940, Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada S0G 1S0 and buy a copy. I think it was about $40. (In case you’re wondering, some of the Mills moved “west” in the early 20th century and homesteaded in Saskatchewan. Agnes was born there in 1918.)

Forgive my inexpert formatting; I had it in some sort of hierarchy when I produced it in Word, but it lost the insets when I moved it to this form. Hope you can figure out who's the descendant of whom.

Here’s what I picked out of the book on the ancestry of Emily Morgan Duddy (although someone’s going to have to visit Ireland to get much more on the Duddy’s).:
.
§       Joseph Mills (b. approx 1774, County Antrim, Belfast), m. Elizabeth, b in 1773 in County Antrim*
o       Joseph Mills (1801 - ?) b. in Ireland (possibly Antrim County, Belfast), m. Sarah (1801 - ?) and settled in Osnabruck Twp., Ont.
§       James Mills (1824 – 1905), (b. Cornwall Twp., Ont.) m. in 1853 at Streetsville, Toronto Twp., Ont., to Sarah Anne Grainger (1833 – 1885), b. in Trafalgar Twp, Halton County, Ont., 23 children** of whom 7 lived to adulthood, inc:
·       Sarah Anne Mills (1859 – 1924),b. in Aldborough Township, Elgin County, Ontario, d. in Marine City, MI, m. in 1882 to George Thomas Duddy (see below)
§       Ella Mabel Duddy (1885 – 1945) b. in Chatham Twp., d. In Marine City, MI, m. in 1921 to Hector Brown (1970 – 1940)
§       James Thomas Duddy (1887 – 1954, b. in Chatham Township, d in Marine City Michigan), m. in 1918 to Florence Edith Boice (1892 – 1980) (1 son)
§       Mary Ethel Duddy (1889 – 1988, b. in Chatham Township, Kent County, Ontario, d. in Blenheim, Ontario) m. in 1910 to Samuel Green (? – 1962)
o       4 children (including my father, Thomas Samuel Green (1914 – 1992), m. in 1943 to Mabel Gwendolyn Crewe (1911 – 1989)
·       Sarah Annie (Sadie) Duddy (1892 – 1975) m. in 1924 to George Robert Kinyon (1891 – 1987) b. & d. Marine City
·       George Ira Duddy (1896 – 1983, b & d. in Marine City, MI) m. Effie Aline Hayter (1901 – 1995) Marine City
o       George Irving Duddy 1927 m. 1959 to Dana Colleen Morgan (1931 – 1995)
§       Emily Morgan Duddy b. 1971 m. 1995 to Michael Prescott b. 1966
§       Mark Morgan Duddy b. 1961 m. Anne Quinlin Grady 1995
o       James Irving Duddy (1929- 1997) m. Patricia Katherine Stockwell in 1959 ( 6 children)
·       Selma Ivy Duddy (1898 – 1970, born in Marine City, MI, d. in Harlingen, TX) m. in 1927 to Robert Elliott Watson (1899 – 1981)
o       Nancy Jane Watson b.1928, m. in 1952 to George Joseph John b. 1925, ( 2 children in Harlingen, Texas)

o       Archibald Duddy (1795 – 1865), b in Ireland, d. in Harwich Twp., Kent County, Ontario m. Catherine Campbell (1804 – 1871)
§       John D. Duddy (1828 - ?) m. Anne? (1828 - ?) 7 children, including:

*there’s no proof of the connection between the 1774 Joseph Mills and the 1801 Joseph Mills, but the facts seem to fit

**Dr. Groome could only document 18 children, but Grannie always said there were 23 and I prefer that version
