In Reply to: Elizabeth Duty ,GGG grandmother by GUY PARKER of 872

Guy, I am a descendant of Elizabeth "Betsy" Duty and Micajah Smith. I cannot prove the following so I really should not be speculating on these facts;however, I think that Elizabeth and her sister Caroline were the daughters of Thomas Duty and Martha Brantley, daughter of Joseph Brantley of Chatham Co., NC. I think after Martha's death in the late 1700's the little girls came to Washington Co., GA with their Brantley relatives and the Colby Smith family. I do not believe that Thomas Duty ever came to GA. The only part that can be proved is that both the Brantley and Smith families came from Chatham Co., NC.
