My great grandmother was also named Mary Josephine McDuffie. She married a Greek who changed his name from Georgios Athanasiou to George Bell. (She could have been married previously.) We had heard she was and had one child who died young.
She had one son with George Bell in Pensacola, Florida named Alexander Brian Bell. She is vurid in St. John's Cemetery in Pensacola.
The home they built in the 1800's is at 120 South Alcaniz Street in Pensacola. It has been set aside as a historical home and is a commercial business now.
Her father was John Alexasnder McDuffie who was married to Patsey (probably Martha) Jane Thornton. They had several children.
Do you think these are the same people?
