Grover Duty was my Great-Grandfather. He married Hettie Ann McClanahan. They originally lived in Grundy, but moved to Corbin, KY when Grover took a position with the union. Eventually, around mid 60's, they moved to Lexington, KY to settle in. They bought a house in Stonewall Estates and Hettie still lives there today. One of his sons, Max, had 4 children: Michael C. Duty, Kerry A. Duty, Terry L. Duty and Lafonda(Cher) Duty. Max married Nancy Ray around late 50's but eventually divorced. After Max and Nancy divorced, Grover and Hettie adopted the 3 boys. They raised all 3 boys along side of their youngest son, Shane. Around 1990, Max passed away after a long battle with diabetes and the recovery from a stroke. He died right there in the house that Hettie lives in. Max's final resting place is right next to Grover's in the Mausoleum of Bluegrass Memorial Gardens in Lexington, KY. Max's son, Michael, married Linda M. Short and had 3 children. Jonathan(me), Bryan and Lauren. Bryan is now a Firefighter in Lexington, Lauren is currently in school in Cincinnati for cadiology tech and I am a Corrections Officer in Lexington.
Shane is an engineer and, after moving back from TN, started a couple of businesses here in Lexington. He is a manufacturer of some of the nicest firearms on the market today and all 3 of Max's sons eventually came to work for Shane.
