Robert accumulated 1,000 acres in orange groves at the edge of Winter Park and 8,000 acres in Bushnell forty-five miles northwest of Orlando, FL which was for beef cattle and nut trees; the latter farm was sliced by interstate 75 southeast of Bushnell toward Tampa. Robert looked as if he could be our grandfather Henry Dillard Winslett's twin.

Martha Wheat1

F, ID# 3192, (c 1811 - )
Father:Unknown Wheat (a 1775 - )
Mother:Elisabeth (Unknown) (a 1780 - )
     Martha Wheat was born c 1811 at North Carolina. She was the daughter of Unknown Wheat and Elisabeth (Unknown). Martha Wheat married Frederick Willoughby on 16 Sep 1834 at Morgan Co, Georgia.
      In 2019 the numerous strong atDNA matches among descendants of the Jonathan Wheat line and the Martha Wheat line indicate Jonathan and Martha were siblings. This hypothesis can likely be confirmed once ancestry.com launches tools for segment visualization or if comparisons were done on gedmatch.com. Supporting this theory is Martha named her first son Jonathan, and her brother named a daughter Martha.

In 1850 Frederick Willoughby and his wife Martha resided in Chambers Co, AL with their children and Martha's apparent mother Elizabeth Wheat and brother Zino Wheat, a carpenter. Next door was the household of Frederick's brother James Willoughby.

Elisabeth (Unknown)1

Charts:Virginia Custis Winslett lineage
Amanda Ola Weathers lineage
     Elisabeth (Unknown) was born a 1780 at Virginia. She married Unknown Wheat a 1800.
      An Elisabeth Wheet, age 80 and born in Virginia, was enumerated on the 1850 Chambers Co, AL census as unable to read and write. Elisabeth was residing in the household of her presumed daughter Martha Willoughby, along with Elisabeth's presumed son Zino Wheet, age 33. If Elisabeth was the mother of Zino and Martha, as opposed to their grandmother, Elisabeth would have to have been born no earlier than about 1777, thus it is believed by this researcher that Elisabeth was about age 70, not age 80, in 1850.

Pvt. Moses Wesley Duke1

M, ID# 3204, (a 1835 - 19 Mar 1897)
Father:Elias Duke (c 1785 - b 1840)
Mother:Emily "Milly" Francis Elkins (c 1786 - a 1860)
     Pvt. Moses Wesley Duke was born a 1835. He was the son of Elias Duke and Emily "Milly" Francis Elkins. Pvt. Moses Wesley Duke married Nancy Cooke a 1863. Pvt. Moses Wesley Duke died on 19 Mar 1897 at Laurndene Station, Mobile Co, Alabama.
      Moses Wesley Duke served in Company G, 12th Regiment, Alabama Infantry in the Civil War.

Wesley was listed on the 1866 Alabama state census with a son and daughter under age 10 and his wife. He was enumerated on the 1870 Smith Co, MS census as Westley Dake with a daughter age 3 and his wife. By 1880 he was on the Mobile Co, AL census as Wesley Dukes with his wife and children. Both censuses show Wesley was born in South Carolina about 1734-35. However Wesley's presumed parents Elias and Emily Dukes moved to Alabama some time between 1823 and 1830, so if Wesley is Elias' son Wesley did not understand his older siblings were born in South Carolina but he was born in Alabama. Supporting the supposition Wesley was their son, Emily Duke was shown as a widow on the 1840 Clarke Co, AL with a new son in the household.

Wesley was also presumed to be the son of Elias and Emily Duke based on strong atDNA matches shared in 2018 between the families of Moses' descendants and the descendants of Elias' other children:

-- The relationship was confirmed by an autosomal triangulated group on GEDmatch consisting of: John Steadham GEDmatch Kit# T451421, Jarrod Winslett GEDmatch Kit# A032174, and Kristina Aslinger GEDmatch Kit# A331116 who share a 21.8 cM segment on chromosome 19 for an in-common length of 10,929,695 base pairs and 1,600 SNPs. Based on documented family trees John and Jarrod are 4th cousins twice removed; John and Kristina are 3rd cousins once removed; and Jarrod and Kristina are 3rd cousins three times removed. The most recent common ancestors of John, Jarrod and Kristina are Elias Dukes and Emily Elkins, the 3rd great grandparents of John and the 5th great grandparents of Jarrod and 2nd great grandparents of Kristina.

-- The relationship was also confirmed by an autosomal triangulated group on GEDmatch consisting of: Gerald Dukes GEDmatch Kit# A682399, Jarrod Winslett GEDmatch Kit# A032174, and Billie Aslinger GEDmatch Kit# A225631 who share a 22.3 cM segment on chromosome 19 for an in-common length of 11,222,748 base pairs and 1,717 SNPs. Gerald and Jarrod are 4th cousins twice removed; Gerald and Billie are 3rd cousins once removed; Jarrod and Billie are 3rd cousins three times removed. The most recent common ancestors of Gerald, Jarrod and Billie based on documented family trees are Elias Dukes and Emily Elkins, the 3rd great grandparents of Gerald and the 5th great grandparents of Jarrod and 2nd great grandparents of Billie.

In 1900 Nancy Dukes stated she had nine children, hence the Cotney age 3 on the 1870 census and the Cortney age 11 on the 1880 census are believed to be two different daughters. Also residing in the household in 1900 were her twin daughters Hattie and Hettie Dukes, ages 27, and her granddaughter Olivia Dukes age 5.
