Hi cousin,

Our line matches all the way from the early Duncklees to Nancy Alvira Duncklee who married Royal Zebulon Bennett. They were my gg grandparents.

However, I've found information on this lineage in a number of places and there is no mention of a Daniel Duncklee who married Ruth Boutelle. The line I have goes as follows:

Elnathan Duncklee and Silence Bowers
Nathanial Duncklee and Mary French
Hezekiah Duncklee
David Duncklee m. Phoebe Odell
Hezekiah Duncklee m. Betsy Farley
Curtis Duncklee m. Rebekah Duncklee (his first cousin)
Nancy Alvira m. Royal Zebulon Bennett

and my line continues:

Judson Bennett m. Matilda Daha
William Clayton Bennett m. Ada Smith
Julia Matilda Bennett m. Marion John Williams
Tom Williams (ME)

That should make us about 3rd cousins (twice over if you count the cousins marrying)

So where did you find info on Daniel Duncklee? It must be in error as you have Daniel's parents marrying in 1797 and Daniel marrying in 1803 when he couldn't have been more than 5. Apparently the Duncklees had no qualms about marrying first cousins (Curtis and Rebekah) but I think even they would draw the line at marrying off their toddlers. I think you may have added an extraneous Duncklee into the mix.

Email me directly as I have some other questions for you abour our gg grandparents.

Thanks.

Tom Williams
