Hello Ronda,
No relation or connection.. I just clicked on your posting and decided to see if I could help.
I spent several hours trying to find anything on your Durden's.
I THINK I may have found your Durden's in the census.
I have saved the census for 1900 and 1910< some is a little hard to read but I think that the Mattie L. in 1900 census is Martha L.
In the 1910 census she is Lovania/Lovinia.

See census below.

I also found Lavinia in the census for 1920 and 1930 for Harper.
