I really have never looked into the family of Doris DUKE. My mother tells me. when she was young, a man came to their house wanting her daddy to join in a suit to obtain money from them. My grandad sent them away and told Mom, that they were probably kin. but he didn't want to be involved in a suit against them??? But, I have never checked it out.
Following info came from a friend:"Juliet Duke, called Julia or Julie, who was born, according to a Bible record, on 18 May 1812 in Culpepper County at Forest Hill. She was married 14 May 1829 in McMinn County, Tennessee to Ephraim A. Reinhardt who was born 14 August 1807, son of Victor Reinhardt of Lincoln County, North Carolina. This couple lived in McMinn County for a few years. By 1835 they were in Columbiana, Shelby County, Alabama where the last of their 14 children were born. Juliet had three brothers. They were George M. Duke born 6 June 1814, James M. born 14 July 1814 and William G. born 3 August 1819. She died 26 Oct 1867 in Cooke County, Texas and her husband died August 1871 at Belton, Texas. All the above dates are from a family Bible as are the names and dates of birth of the children of Juliet Duke Reinhardt and her husband Ephraim which follows"
I realize the date of birth for the boys can't be right, but that is the way it was printed.
Let me hear from you
