Re: hey, there my fellow dunckleys!

In Reply to: hey, there my fellow dunckleys! by Andrew Dunckley, N.Y. of 459

My great-grandmother was a Dunckley (or Dunkley, Duncklee, Dunklee, you name it). She was born in Milford, New Hampshire in 1832 and died in Horicon/Brant Lake, NY in 1907. She was Nancy Alvira Dunklee and married Royal Zebulon Bennett, 1825-1907. I have Nancy Alvira Duncklee's line back to Elnathan Duncklee, 1634-1669 (or thereabouts).

Have you any information on your specific Duncklee heritage?

If you descend from Nathaniel Duncklee, Elnathan's son, then you have lots of illustrious Americans you can call cousin, including 4 U.S. presidents. Nathaniel married Mary French whose line I have traced back to the middle ages in Europe.

I have been corresponding with a Dunkley I met just recently on this forum. She lives in upstate NY as well and also descends from Elnathan, although not Nathaniel. I have a summer/vacation home in upstate NY as well, in Port Henry, NY which is on the shores of Lake Champlain.

Let me know if you can trace your line at all.

Tom Williams
