Teague Duty is my husband's great-great grandfather. We have been to the gravesite of Teague and Betsy Duty. We have also been to the gravesite of Teague and Betsy Duty's daughter, "Frankie" or it could be spelled as "Frankey" Duty (It reads Frankey) on the headstone.
We have been unable to locate the parents name for Teague Duty. Could it be that Teague Duty was born out of wedlock, raised by another family if his parents died at an early age while he was young, or what? I know other researchers have been searching for this information for years. We would welcome any and all information from other Duty family members that would help us locate this information to be able to connect this family with the other Duty families we now have in our file.
