My 3rd great grandfather William Henry ("Henry")Duty was born. April 12, 1801, in Sumner County, Tennessee.
Henry's ancestors migrated from North Carolina to Tennessee, to Hempstead County, Arkansas, and from there to Texas. Henry's parent's, George Duty, b. ca 1775 in North Carolina, and d. ca 1821 in Tennessee, and Elizabeth (Thomas) Duty, b. in North Carolina.
George and Elizabeth were married September 28, 1798, and were early settlers of Tennessee.
The family resided in Eastern Texas for some years, and finally locating in Falls County in 1849, settling close to the Falls near the McLennan County line, engaging in farming and stock-raising.
By 1850, Henry had bought land in the present day Satin area.
I am looking for information on Henry's siblings and their descendants a well as information on his children and their descendants. his daughter, Mary Jane Duty, was my 2nd great grandmother.
I have much information that I will share.
