my LANGDALE contact sent me this:
"""The Dukes-Langdale connection has long been on my list of things to
investigate. I came across this item several years ago, and in my research I
noticed Langdale-Dukes relationships generation after generaton, right down
to the present day. I know a young man named ****** Dukes who does
accounting for the Langdale Company in Valdosta. His father was a Langdale
friend, a lawyer as I recall. There was a Dukes who was a partner in the
turpentine business with Judge Harley Langdale. Whether the Dukes in
Valdosta today are descendants of this Dukes family in South Carolina, I
don't know, but I would not be surprised to find that it's so. As you know,
there was a substantial migration of Colleton County residents to South
Georgia in the first half of the 19th century, which included John Robert
believe DUKES family also settled in Sumter/Lake County area of Florida...this is where my great grandfather, John William HARRIS is buried...he was born in Colleton Co, SC 1855...his mother is LANGDALE...
