Hi Everyone,
I am tring to find information on William H Duff b 8-1876 Amherst Co
married Ida ???? b 10-1880 Amherst??

They had the following
children......................................................................

........

Harry b 4-1895
Alma b 11-1897
Viola b1900
Bessie L b 1901
Mary M b 1898
Elli? son 3mons in 1910

They lived in an area that became Rockbridge Co.I can't find them in 1920.In
1930
they were in Botetourt Co., about three or four miles below Iron Gate.The
area was called Lick Run.They owned a farm there.

William was a widow and was living with his so son Harry who
married...................
Annie Heslop the daughter of Edward T and Opilila A Heslop.They were all
living together in 1930, so I am thinking they moved together from
Rockbrige.I Could be wrong.I couldn't find them in a couple of the census
records.I need to check again

I need to find out Ida's surname.She is said to be full blood Indian.I don't
know if the were Monacan or Cherokee.Annie remarried after Harry died.She
married a Lowe.Her son, Norman Taylor Duff was my stepfather.He was the Town
Sgt. in Iron Gate for many years.

There was a William Henry Duff who married a Bessie Adcock in 1931, on the Monacan roll.I don't know if he was related to mt William Duff or not.In
the 1880 census there is a family that has a William Listed who is the right
age, but there were several William's in the area.This William was living
with................

Frances Duff (female) 35yrs
Mary V 25yrs (sister)
Lucie 13yrs (daughter)
Douglas 9yrs (son)
Lilia 5yrs(daughter)
Victoria 14yrs (niece)
Jeramijah 7yrs (nephew)
William 4yrs (nephew)

I wonder what happened to the parents and Frances' husband? Anyway, I would
appreciate any help on this Duff family and Heslop (Heslep)family.Also the family of
Ida.
