Richard Duty ( brother to William and Matthew) had the following children:
according to Ezekiel's manuscript.
Samuel married Frances Kelley Harris (Feb. 13,1812)and Ezekiel writes a story he was told, but denied by grandson of Samuel, Francis Banks Hays:
"the story was told tht George Harris, the father-in-law of Samuel Duty, was much opposed to the marriage of his daughter, Frances to Samuel, but his daughter married him anyway. This made her father so angry, that he made a devout wish: that his daughter and Samuel would never give birth to or be blessed with a son. Samuel and Frances Duty were blessed with 13 daughters and no son(s)."
I always love that little story and then reading the names of the 13 daughters.
