These are the only Duvalls I find in Edmonson and Grayson counties:
From History of KY Illustrated 1886:
(Edmonson County)
Jacob M. Duvall, son of Gabriel and Ellen Duvall, is the third in a family of three boys and two girls and was born in April 1848 in Edmonson County, KY. His father, Gabriel Duvall, a son of Jacob and Elizabeth Duvall, was reared on a farm; at the age of 19 he married Ellen French, and commenced farming in Edmonson County. At the age of 30, he moved with his family to Jasper County, IL, where he and his wife both died. After their death the children were reared by their uncle, Thomas Duvall who brought them back to Edmonson County, KY. At the age of 21, Jacob Duvall began for himself; he raised a crop; and in the fall taught school for one term, and has since taught four terms. In February 1874, he married Patie Jones, who was a native of KY. To Mr. and Mrs. Duvall the following children were born: Vitruly, Iduna, Ulysses, Cora, Bellmar and an infant daughter. Since his marriage Mr. Duvall has following farming, and now owns about 600 acres, of which 160 acres are under cultivation; he also trades in stock, and is one of the enterprising men of his community. He served as sheriff one year by appointment; in politics he is a Democrat.

(Grayson County)
Dr. Henry C. Duvall was born June 29, 1844, at Nolin, Hardin County, KY, where he grew to manhood and whence, in his twenty-second year, he moved to the site now occupied by the town of Big Clifty, having been one of the first three persons who located at that point. His father, Gabriel Duvall, was born in 1800, also in Hardin County. He was a farmer and a son of Thomas Duvall, who was also a farmer and a native of France. Gabriel Duvall was twice married; first to Miss Elenor McGill of Breckinridge County, who bore him one son and two daughters. His second wife was Miss Elizabeth H., daughter of Robert S. and Elizabeth (Hines) Slaughter, of Nelson County. To them six children were born, of whom Robert S., Henry C. and Low E. Dorsey still survive. Henry C. was also twice married; first June 7, 1870 to Miss Kate, daughter of James S. and Elizabeth (Florence) Crawford, of Hardin County. To them one son, Henry C., Jr. was born. Mrs. Kate Duvall departed this life March 6, 1876, Henry C. Duvallís second married was with Miss Nettie, daughter of William B. and Martha (Layman) McDonald of Grayson County. To them have been born Wilbur and Araminta. At the age of 16 years, Henry C., began to prepare himself for his chosen profession; first for about two years under the preceptorship of Dr. Garrett Shelburn of Sonora, under whom he read for about two years after which he read for the same length of time under the supervision of Dr. Coombs. Finally after one year spent at the Eclectic School of Medicine in Cincinnati, he finished his studies at the University of Louisville, from which he graduated in the class of 1872, since which time, as well as for several years before, he has engaged in the practice of his profession at his present home with more than average success. He is the owner of about 1,200 acres of land in Hardin and Grayson counties. He is a member of the United Baptist church, as is also his wife; he is also a member of the Masonic fraternity and in politics a Democrat.
