The death certificate you referenced is that of my great-grandfather, James Ray Ford. I have come to believe that the person who gave the information [James Ray's son-in-law) made a mistake in calling his mother [whoever] Duncan. I have no idea where that might have come from and I have spent many years trying to discover who Miss Duncan was, to no avail. Other evidence now seems to point to Elizabeth Chaney as the mother.
I did already have a copy of that death certificate, but thanks. I appreciate your kindness.
Because of that death certificate, there is a lot of totally wrong info floating around in the genealogical circles, including FamilySearch and other venues. A cousin of mine arbitrarily decided that the mother's name looked like M.K. Duncan, and figured that her name must be Mary Kay...so that is what is "out there." Others who have seen it, thought that what looked like initials could be "unk" for "unknown." Ironically, that whole name now seems to be wrong, based on other evidence. Frustrating in the extreme!
