Thank you for replying, Nicole.
I know a lot more about Alfred DuBan since that post, but little on his ancestry. Let me know if you see a link in any of this.
Alfred (b. Aug 5,1839 Middlesex, London, England) and his Father, Joseph (b. abt 1818, France), came to America in 1851 and moved to Philadelphia. Joseph served briefly in our Civil War, and died between 1865-70. Alfred married Emma Amelia Jenkins in 1863 and died in 1868. (His wife remarried in 1870 and started my Bruce line.) Alfred had two children, Emma Amelia and Alfred, Jr. Alfred Jr had no children, so his DuBan name died out with him. Sister Emma married Charles Pagels and had daughter Adeline Pagels. Alfred Jr was a wealthy man and owned an accounting firm in Phila. We have stories about him, but none of his money.
