COULD SOMEONE TELL ME IF IRONGATE IS IN ALLEGHANY COUNTY AND DOES ANYONE KNOW THE SURNAMES RUFF, DOOLEY/DULEY, BLANKENSHIP. MY GG GREATFATHER WAS HUGH DOOLEY, BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE THE LAST NAME WAS CHANGED TO DULEY. HE MARRIED KATE KATHELINE RUFF. KATE'S MOTHER AND HUGH'S MOTHER WERE SISTERS. KATE'S MOTHER WAS BETTY ELIZABETH FRANCES RUFF(1841-1940) AND HUGH'S MOTHER WAS OLIVIA RUFF. THAT MADE HUGH AND KATE FIRST COUSINS. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HUGH'S FATHER'S NAME IS BECAUSE HE'S MY GG GRANDFATHER. HUGH'S WIFE KATE, HAD A BROTHER NAMED BEN BLANKENSHIP AND HE BELIEVES THE FAMILIES WERE LIVING BETWEEN RICHMOND AND ROANOAK IN THE HILLS. IF THERE ARE ANY DULEY/DOOLEY'S OUT THERE PLEASE WRITE AND ANYONE WITH INFO ON ANY OF THE SURNAMES I'VE GIVEN PLEASE WRITE OR EMAIL ME AT ESTEBANANDSUE@AOL.COM
