Odis: Saw where you did so much research on all of the old Titus County ones including Riddles. My grandfather whose father was James Wilkerson Duke whose first wife was Mary Barry (died at childbirth) soon after married Allena (Lena) Riddle Pemberton. We still have one of their children's spouses remaining in Mt. Pleasant, Nora Duke. Have you run across anything on Lena's daughter Laura who married a Harry DePrato from that area. Would like to know where Harry is married and if there are DePrato's left. Did you ever run into any research on the Dukes? They were carriage makers and famous carpenters building some of the first nice hotels when Mt. Pleasant was a "spa" place. Also, would like to know more about the Jones family. I know Dudley's statute is in the middle of the square and that they lived where Dellwood Park is and that Henry had the first court held on his veranda. Would like to know where their ferry was and anything else to make a story. Henry Jones was my grandmother Duke's grandfather. Ed Neugent over in Talco was her brother. Let me hear from you.
