Thanks for your reply! Sarah A. Dukes (nee' Hardy) was born in 1792 where some of my research said Nansemond County, Virginia. She died in Bertie County between 1850 and 1859.
What is your interest in Emily Dukes?
This is what I have:
Emily C. Dukes was the oldest daughter of Joseph and Sarah. She married James N. Green in 1840. Tragically he died in 1847. Emily moved to Goldsboro NC, where several of her siblings lived, and married William A. Nichols in 1855. Emily died in 1868.Her oldest daughter - Mary Ann - lived with Sarah and Joseph (1850 Census) until her death in 1856 at 17. Her only other surviving child - James Reddick Green - was born n 1845 and died in 1913 in Hertford County.
