In Reply to: Elizabeth Duty by Connie Holm of 872

I am a direct desc. of Elizabeth Duty through her son Wyatt Stinson Grant.

Here is the info that I have:

Elizabeth married Wyatt on 9/28/1815 in Gibson County, IN she was born @ 1797 in North Carolina. I have NO idea who her parents were. I do know that there was a John Duty who married an Anna Grant 4/13/1824 in Posey County. I think they might have migrated to Southern Illinois also (or some of their children did)It seems I have lost some my notes on this family.

I have been looking for the parents of Wyatt and Elizabeth for almost two years. Wyatt's father may be Jesse or Jessie according to Souce: Alice Grant, Marion, Il: Located the information in the Illinois State Archives Governors Pages.....Justice of Peace in Lawrence, Il, Lawrence County 1821-1823 However I have looked all over North Carolina for him and nothing.

There is a Jubal Grant married to Nancy Hightower in TN (wilson county?) that may be a brother. I believe that Jubal has a son named Wyatt and Wyatt had a son named Jubal. The ages are about right and Wyatt and Elizabeth would have some through TN to Posey County. There is no proof of this though, just my speculation.

Look at Marty Grant's website he has lots of info. Also we have had lots of discussions about this family in this forum and in the Grant forum. Check those. Maybe you can offer new insight. (I hope!)
