Hi Twyla, I am sorry i have not answered sooner. Things have been a little hectic and still that way. I am descended from Rachel Duty, Hester's sister. I really don't have a lot of information on Elijah Duty and Nancy Winemiller Duty, except that Elijah's father was Matthew Duty and mother Zylpha. Most of my information is on the children of Elijah and Nancy. But i will help as much as i can. So please feel free to ask what ever questions you like. I believe Elijah and Nancy died sometime between 1870-1880 in Randolph County Arkansas. They were married Nov. 17 1838 in Posey County Indiana. They came to Lawrence County Arkansas in the late 1840's or early 1850's. Elijah's father was Matthew Duty born about 1778 in North Carolina and died between 1850-1853 in Posey County Indiana. His mother's name was Zylpha born 1781 in North Carolina. I have yet to find out her maiden name. Your Hester Duty married John Jones Jan. 4 1866 in Lawrence County Arkansas. I have seen different middle initials for him K-C-I ? I believe John died between 1877-1880 in Lawrence County Arkansas. I am not sure if Hester married again or not. Do you know? I also believe John Jones was related to Hester's sister Rachel Duty's 1st husband James Madison Jones who also died about the same time. They might have been brothers. John Jones was born about 1846 in Missouri. I have children of Hester Duty and John Jones as: William Stanley (1867), Arminta J. (1869), Marion T. (1871), Riley (1874) and Sarah E. (1877). I have information on Elijah's father Matthew Duty also. Matthew's father was William Duty born 1740 Va. died 1815 Chatham County, North Carolina. His mother was Catherine Russell born 1740 Va. I am not sure what information you have already, so just let me know and i will help if i can.
