William M Buxton and wife "Duck" Money Buxton

I'm researching my Henry CO Gamble family tree, specifically one branch that starts with Edith M "Edie" Gamble, daughter of John Gamble Jr (1822-1865) and wife Tempe Deal. Edie, to me, is the sister of my great-grandmother Elmina Gamble Hutto.

Edie was born abt 1863, named after her grandmother Edith Cole Deal, and she married James Money in 1881 in Henry CO. James was killed by Thomas Howerton in a fight during a card game in 1884.

James and Edie had one daughter, Aracinda Mack Julia Duck Duffy Deal Money. She went by "Duck" all her life until she died in childbirth in 1923 having her 6th daughter. Duck was married to Wm M Buxton and their children were:

Lula born abt 1903
Vara born abt 1908
Mary R born abt 1912
Ruby born abt 1915
Jinnie E born abt 1918
Julia F born abt 1923

What I'd like to know is: full names of any of the above, especially Edie's middle name. Who did the Buxton girls marry? Are there any descendants who'd like to share info? And the big question...does anyone know why Duck had so many given names?

Bonus: I have some letters written to my grandfather during WWI, and one of them was from his cousin Lula Buxton dated in 1918.

Thank you in advance.
