Charles Duke1,2,3

M, ID# 12184, (a 1768 - 22 Jan 1850)
Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Charles Duke was born a 1768 at Georgia. He was the son of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown). Charles Duke died on 22 Jan 1850 at Floyd Co, Georgia.
      Charles Duke was identified by Cheryl Duke as marrying Nancy Elliot on 4 Apr 1800 in Greene Co, GA, so he was likely born about 1779 or earlier. Nancy's parents Thomas and Abegail Elliott together with Charles and Nancy all of Clarke Co, sold land on Camp Branch, Rose Creek and the Oconee River; neither Charles or Nancy could sign their names. Charles died in 1850 in Floyd Co, GA.

That Charles married Nancy Elliot was critical information because there were two other contemporary men related to Charles with the same name. The second Charles was his first cousin Charles who married Dolly before Oct 1797, sold land in 1797 that he inherited from his father Capt Henry Duke on Fishing Creek, and died by 1805; this Charles was well cited in his father's will and lawsuits related thereto as well as land sales tracing his inheritance. The third Charles, or perhaps Charles son of Thomas in a second marriage, was married to Mary / Polly Shearer, the daughter of James and Ann Shearer, as shown by Polly's father's estate settlement in 1808 – 1810. Of note, there were no land sales to or from Thomas Duke senior to the Elliott family.

James Duke1,2,3

M, ID# 12185, (a 1773 - )
Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     James Duke was born a 1773. He was the son of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      James Duke was likely the James who married Elizabeth Martin on 3 Mar 1794 in Olgethorpe Co, GA indicating James was born in 1773 or earlier. Thomas Duke senior was not noted with any legal transactions with the Martin family. James was on the 1800 Oglethorpe Co census with his wife and 5 children under age 10. In 1801 James received a 450-acre grant on Buffalo Creek which he conveyed for $100 to his father Thomas, as witnessed by his brother Henry, and his father sold 150 acres of the land in 1802 for $300. Under these circumstances James must have owed his father money. James Dukes was on the list of 1803 Jackson Co, tax defaultors in William Camp's District, Jackson Co. James was residing on an 80 acre tract on Marberry's Creek in Jackson Co which Thomas senior purchased in 1805 from Thomas Camp. James' brother Charles sold land on Camp Branch in 1805.

Thomas Duke II1,2,3

M, ID# 12186, (c 1770 - a 1850)
Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Thomas Duke II was born c 1770. He was the son of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown). Thomas Duke II died a 1850 at Coweta Co, Georgia.
      Thomas Duke junior was born circa 1775 or earlier based on his service in the War of 1812 which ran from Jun 1812 until Feb 1815 and his father Thomas first using the designator senior in 1796 indicating his namesake son had reached the age of majority.

Thomas and his presumed wife were living in Oglethorpe Co with a female age 16-25 in 1820. In 1824 Thomas junior and Nathaniel Smith, both of Oglethorpe Co, and Harrison Smith of Pike Co sold 200 acres they acquired from the Isham Smith estate. According to the research of Cheryl Duke, Thomas was married to Mary Smith, so this Smith inheritance was on behalf of his wife, however their marriage record has not been discovered.

Other legal interactions between the Dukes and Smith families included: Thomas junior's uncle Capt Henry Duke used Burel Smith as a witness on his 1780 will, probated in 1782; Arthur Smith of Randolph (Jasper) Co bought land in 1810 which originally belonged to William Duke; and Charles Smith junior sold his inherited land from Isham Smith estate in 1827 with Thomas Duke senior as a witness.

In 1829 Thomas and his father attended a Morgan Co, GA estate sale for John T. Duke his brother. The following year a Thomas Duke age 50-59 appeared on the Coweta Co, GA census; the Thomas junior from Morgan Co would have been about age 60, so this could be the same man. In 1840 Thomas Duke, age 60 - 69, was enumerated again in that county with a female presumed to be his wife age 50-59, 1 female age 15 - 19, 2 females age 10 - 14, and 10 slaves -- mostly young.

Jane "Jenny" Duke1,2,3

Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Jane "Jenny" Duke was born on 16 Mar 1771 at Georgia. She was the daughter of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown). Jane "Jenny" Duke died in 1813 at Catahoula Parish, Louisiana.
      Jane "Jenny" Duke on 20 Jul 1789 married Matthew Stone, who was noted born 28 Feb 1763, Oglethorpe Co, GA. In 1796 Matthew Stone of Jackson Co and Thomas Duke senior of Oglethorpe Co, Jane's father, purchased 300 acres on the Oconee River in Jackson Co and in 1798 Stone and Duke sold this land. Later in 1798 Matthew and Jenny sold her brother John T. Duke 400 acrees on the Oconee River with her brother James and father Thomas Duke, justice of the peace, as witnesses. After that point, discord began and Thomas Duke senior got court-ordered attachments against the property of Stone in 1802, 1803 and 1806.

An unsourced family history by an accomplished researcher stated Mary Jane Duke was born 16 Mar 1771 in Georgia, had 13 children and died 1813 in Catahoula Parish, LA; of note, Catahoula Parish was the family home of the Simeon Duke family who also had a daughter Ethia Jane 1829-1901.

Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     John T. Duke was born a 1771. He was the son of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      John T. Duke married Mary Wootten 17 Apr 1792 in Wilkes Co, GA, thus he was born about 1771 or earlier about 1769. In 1814 Thomas Duke senior conveyed John T. Duke of Morgan Co 50 acres where William Duke was living; the transcription does not show an economic transfer, so this land may have been gifted by Thomas to his son. As shown on an 1808 deed, John Duke and John T. Duke were sometimes used interchangably in records and referred to the same person. In 1808 John and his wife Mary sold the land on which they were living in Clarke Co in two transactions, one of which was to William Marten, who may have been to his brother-in-law William Morton. By 1820 John T., over age 45, with a young family of 3 under age 10 was living two doors from Thomas Duke, believed to be his father. John T. was likely named for his paternal uncle and his full name may therefore be John Taylor Duke.

Henry Duke1,2,3

M, ID# 12189, (a 1776 - )
Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Henry Duke was born a 1776. He was the son of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      Henry Duke was found in records less often and in less significant documents than his siblings were. Henry Duke served as a witness for one of his parents' land sales in 1797, indicating Henry was born 1776 or earlier; it is unlikely that this was a record for his first cousin also named Henry because the land sold was in the area where the family of Thomas Dukes senior lived.

Henry Duke was living in Oglethorpe Co in 1800 with his presumed wife and one young child. In 1802 Henry witnessed his brother John T. conveying land to their father Thomas. In 1804 Henry was residing on Dry Creek adjacent to his father Thomas and his brother-in-law William Morton. Henry witnessed his father's 1805 land transaction. On 1 Jan 1807 Henry Duke married Mary Stephens in Jackson Co, GA; this could possibly be either Henry the son of Thomas with a second wife or Thomas' nephew by the same name. In 1807 Henry from Oglethorpe Co had 2 opportunities to particpate in the land lottery.

Henry was conveyed a tract of land where he was residing in Morgan Co from his father Thomas Duke of Morgan Co in 1818; no money was shown in the transcription so this may have been a gift. Henry, age 68 and thus born about 1782, resided with Polly and four children in Jackson Co, GA in 1850; he was divorced from Polly in 1857 and given permission to remarry.

Henry is often confused with his first cousin with the same name who was the orphan son of Capt Henry Duke and for whom Thomas Duke senior served as guardian. A clear differentiating factor was his orphan cousin Henry inherited and sold land on Soap Creek in northeast Georgia.

Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Lucy Duke was born a 1780. She was the daughter of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      Lucy Duke married William T. Morton in Oglethorpe Co, GA on 23 Apr 1798, thus she was likely born about 1780. William Morton resided in the same area as Thomas Duke senior on Dry Creek and in 1804 Thomas sold William land on Dry Fork adjoining land of Lucy's brother Henry in Oglethorpe Co. In 1803 Joel Morton sold land to John Duke, both being from Clarke Co. In 1805 William became embroiled in a court case over a deed from his brother-in-law John Duke which John apparently could not be made good.

Over the years the Duke family had other legal transactions the Mortons; on 1 May 1796 William Duke, likely the brother of Thomas Duke senior, and Josiah Morton of Jackson Co purchased 690 acres on the North Fork of the Oconee River, after which Thomas bought out Josiah's portion a year later. In 1808 John Duke sold the land where he lived in Clarke Co with Joel Morton as a witness.

     Elizabeth "Betsy" Duke was born in 1780. She was the daughter of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      Elizbeth "Betsey" Duke was born in 1780, married Welcome Parks on 2 Oct 1801 in Oglethorpe Co and died 1827 in Jasper Co, GA. Welcome was born 4 Oct 1781 and died 16 Mar 1850, Coweta Co GA according to find-a-grave.

The Parks family long served as legal witnesses for Thomas senior's land transactions beginning in 1794 with John Ball Parks and then Payton Parks in 1797. By 1802 Bird Parks, a justice of the peace, was Thomas' primary Parks legal witness with Welcome joining Bird in that capacity in 1804 – 1809; Bird Parks could have been Welcome's brother or father. Elizabeth and Welcome's daughter was Lucy Parks Glenn.

Two of Elizabeth's brothers, Hardeman and Charles, named sons Welcome Parks Duke.

Father:Thomas Duke I (c 1742 - c 1830)
Mother:Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown) (a 1750 - c 1802)
     Mariah Duke was born a 1785. She was the daughter of Thomas Duke I and Elizabeth "Eliza / Betsy" (Unknown).
      Mariah Duke was likely also known as Polly, and there were two women named Polly Duke in the area who married in the general timeframe of Thomas' other children. The most likely person to be his daughter Mariah was the Polly Duke who married William Killgore on 21 May 1807 in Wilkes Co, GA, thus this woman was born about 1789 or earlier. The Killgores lived next to Thomas Duke. In 1789 Robert and Ann Killgore sold 50 acres adjacent to land of Thomas Duke.

The other Polly Duke in the area married Miliken Patrick on 23 Mar 1799 in Oglethorpe Co, GA and thus was likely born 1781 or earlier. In 1804 William Duke sold land on Dove's Creek and the Apalachee to John M. Patrick of Clarke Co, who could potentially be the same man as Miliken Patrick.

Maria Leonor's baptism recertification stated: In Book 2, p. 5, City of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, 9 Sep 1792, Don Francisco Rando, Curate, baptized Maria Leonor the legitimate daughter of Don Agustin Wall, Lieutenant Colonel of this Plaza, Knight of the order of Santiago and of Dona Isabel Ocallaghan, born 8 Sep 1792. Don Diego Pluket stood in as godfather on behalf of Don Carlos Ocallaghan, maternal uncle of the baby, who was advised to teach the child spritual lessons and church doctrine by Don Francisco Rando on 4 Aug 1792 in Lisbon.

David O'Callaghan1,2

M, ID# 12202, (a 1750 - 1804)
Father:John O'Callaghan (a 1728 - )
Mother:Joanna (Unknown) (a 1730 - )
     David O'Callaghan was born a 1750. He was the son of John O'Callaghan and Joanna (Unknown). David O'Callaghan married Elizabeth (Unknown) a 1780. David O'Callaghan died in 1804. He was buried at St. Mary's Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
      In 1790 David O'Callaghan, a wealthy Philadelphia, PA merchant and the brother of Isabel O'Callaghan of Spain, was named as godfather for his presumed niece Isabel Wall, later known by her English name Elizabeth. He was enumerated as David Callaghen, a merchant at 12 South Water St, at what appears to be a store.

David is possibly the David Calaghan, born about 1750, who at age 24 arrived in 1774 in Maryland (Michael O'Brien in "Irish Immigrants from English Ports in the 18th Century" published in 1919.)

David Callaghan was listed on the 1789 Passyunk Township, Philadelphia Co, PA Tax List. Passyunk was incorporated into Philadelphia in 1805 and shows on present-day maps as Passyunk Square. Water St, where David was continuously listed as early as 1791 was less than a half-mile from Passyunk Square. Similarly, the neighborhood Kensington where David was shown to have a home in 1804 when he died was about 2 miles north of David's waterfront businesses, and set back about a half-mile from the waterfront.

David Callaghan or O'Callaghan was not residing in Philadelphia in 1785 and no city directories were issued for 1786-1790 thus it is unknown when David arrived in Philadelphia but by 1791 he was living in the city. Furthermore, although the directories were almost always in alphabetical rather than street order and usually distinguished between a person's shop and residence, David was generally listed on Water St and other streets with waterfront addresses which were likely business addresses. This researcher believes there was only one David Callaghan because David Callaghan's estate shows he was wealthy; in some years the address numbers were transposed on the streets; and after 1804 the listings of David Callaghans abruptly stopped, although a Mrs. Callaghan was listed for 1805 at one of the addresses as a merchant.

Leading merchant houses operated docks and warehouses along the Delaware River and David's addresses were always on the waterfront. In 1791 the city directory shows David Callaghan listed at 12 Water St, Philadelphia on the riverfront. By 1793 David Callaghan was listed at 48 and 167 South Water St; alternatively 48 could have been the address for another David Callaghan listing, noted the following year at 48 Penn St, which if it was Penn's Landing Road was also on the waterfront. David on Water St was not listed in 1794 when David was listed at 48 Penn St near a Matthew Callaghan who was listed for one year as a grocer.

On 24 Jan 1793 a letter was sent from Lisbon, Portugal to David Callaghan of 48 and 167 South Water St, Philadelphia which was extracted and forwarded to President George Washington by Thomas Jefferson on 5 Mar 1793. The letter discusses the sudden death of US diplomat Thomas Barclay who arrived in Lisbon, Portugal from Cadiz, Spain. Thus David had a role keeping the US government informed about diplomatic issues abroad.

In 1794 David sold President George Washington straw matting imported from Portugal to cover the floor of the New Room at Mount Vernon which appears to be the same room constructed and decorated with carving by our 6th great grandfathers Going Lanphier and William Bernard Sears in 1775. Washington may have become acquainted with David Callaghan when Washington purchased straw matting to furnish a room of similar function in the executive mansion in Philadelphia many years before.

In 1795 David was listed at 169 Water St on the east side, while a second David Callaghan listing was on Lombard St on the south side near Front St, also located right on the waterfront. In 1796 there were listings for David near 12 Lombard, David at 169 Water St and a Nicholas Callaghan, a broker on North Water St near Callow Hill St; one profession at that time was ship broker and David would have benefited from having one in his family. In 1797 there were listings for David at 169 Fourth St near Water St -- likely the same address as 169 Water St previously shown for years -- and Nicholas was now shown at 23 Lombard St. Thus the pattern among these men named David and Nicholas was they were generally listed on the riverfront, and thus they may be related in some way. David Callaghan was shown on the 1798 Upper Smithfield, Northhampton and Wayne counties, PA tax list with four two-acre lots about 45 miles north of Philadelphia. The year 1798 has David Callaghans listed at 169 Fourth / Water St. and 8 Lombard St; in 1799 a David was only at 169 Lombard St (which combines the two addresses again).

On 22 Feb 1799 Portuguese diplomat Cipriano Ribeiro Freire, resident minister to the US Oct 1794 - Apr 1799, requested data from Thomas Jefferson on growing tobacco be sent to Freire in care of David Callaghan, merchant, 169 South Water St in Philadelphia. Thus David continued to further diplomatic communications.

In 1800 David was listed as the father of Charles Callaghan in the 21 Jun will of Margaret Telles, a widow in Philadelphia, whose will was proved 21 Jun 1800. In the Telles will David's wife Elizabeth was also mentioned as well as David himself. In 1800 David was listed at the corner of Water and Pine St; in 1801 at 169 South Water St and a listing at 13 Lombard St. This Charles Callaghan who was the grain measurer is unlikely to be Charles, the son of David, because David's estate was still paying his tuition during the 1804 - 1810 settlement process. However, an 1800 manifest for the ship Mentor shows much of the cargo was owned jointly by Charles and David Callaghan, so perhaps the Charles Callaghan who was a grain measurer was both David's partner as well as his brother Carlos O'Callaghan from Europe.

In 1802, the year the Wall sisters were sent to Philadelphia, the directory lists David at 13 Lombard St; in 1803 at both 44 Lombard and 169 Water streets; in 1804 at 169 South Water and 273 Front St, after which there is no listing for David Callaghan, merchant, in the directory through at least 1811 -- the year after Eliza and Mary married. Mrs. Callaghan, not listed as a widow but as a merchant, continued at the 169 South Water St address in 1805 only.

During the years 1791 through 1811, there was a gradual increase in the number of other Callaghans living in Philadelphia, some of whom may be related to David as noted above. Of possible interest in 1804 a Mary Callaghan lived at 4 Pewterplatter Alley where a Mary Wall, a widow resided near 17 Pewterplatter; this is the only case noted where two families of the Wall, Callaghan or Palmer surname lived on the same street. In 1809 the year before the siblings Mary and Eliza and Mary, Charles Callaghan was still working as a measurer and two Michaels, a Mary who was a grocer, and a gentlewoman on 167 N 3rd St were in Philadelphia; the following year when they married the gentlewoman was not listed but a woman with a boarding house was included.

On 12 Oct 1804 David's widow Elizabeth and John Hall, a merchant, administrators of David's estate, along with merchants William Montgomery and John Coulter were bound to the state for $20,000 to settle David's estate. The first estate aggregated accounting including merchandise, household goods, money in the bank and primarily accounts receivable from businesses totaling $19,374. Expenses indicate David owned a home at Kensington for which taxes were paid from 1805 - 1810; owned or had an interest in the ship Felicidade, the ship/frigate Martha and Judina, ship Mary, brig Hope, frigate Fama, ship Herman and Thusneda (?). Expenses included David's burial at St. Mary's Church but also pew rent at St. Augustine's Church. Taxes were also paid on lands David owned in Northhampton, Huntingdon, Wayne and 5 tracts of land in Lycoming counties in Pennsylvania -- none of which were close to Philadelphia. The estate expenses show trade with Cadiz, Spain. Under John Hall's administration David's extensive merchant and shipping business appeared to be well managed and grew to $29,985 by 5 Apr 1810 when the estate was settled.

Most interesting from David's estate administration was "Received with proceeds of Sales of Brig Hope (which arrived in 1805) ... 23 Feb 1806, Net proceeds of 20 ?r Casks Sherry Wine M & E Wall $439.86." So Mary and Eliza sold goods through their uncle's business. Also on "27 Nov 1806, balance due from Mary and Elizabeth Wall, $115.40."

F, ID# 12205, (12 Jun 1839 - 10 Feb 1925)
Father:PVT Stephen "Yank" Weathers (c 1809 - 18 Jul 1897)
Mother:(1st wife of Stephen Weathers) (Unknown) (a 1815 - a 1833)
     Pamela Jane Weathers was born on 12 Jun 1839 at Georgia. She was the daughter of PVT Stephen "Yank" Weathers and (1st wife of Stephen Weathers) (Unknown). Pamela Jane Weathers married Sgt. Richard Colman Hickey on 18 Sep 1854 at Tallapoosa Co, Alabama. Pamela Jane Weathers died on 10 Feb 1925 at Santa Ana, Orange Co, California, at age 85.
      Pamela Jane Weathers was the Jane "Wetherford" who married Richard Hickey in Tallapoosa Co, AL. Jane's birth date is based on the bible record in the Hickey - Weathers bible which was in possession of her descendants in Garden Grove, CA.

Jane was noted on the 1860 census as born about 1839 and by the time of the 1870 census she reported she was born about 1837. Some of Jane's descendants' families knew her as a Withers. She predominantly used the name Jane although she included her given name as Permelia on her Condederate widow's pension application.

In 1830 - 1840 her father Stephen resided in Campbell Co, GA census near where present-day Cobb Co, GA and where Jane was reportedly born, as opposed to being born in Alabama as she reported on the 1860 census when she was residing in Talladega Co, AL. By 1870 Jane was living in Clay Co, AL and reported she was born in Georgia, which she continued to state in the following 1880 Clay Co census. In 1900 Jane was residing in Buena Park, Orange Co, CA next door to her son Robert. In 1910 she was living in Kern, CA and 1920 she resided alone in Orange Co, CA.

Some of Pamela's descendants believe her parents were Jesse Weathers and Martha Elizabeth Sturgis in Randolph Co, AL, but they were not because the Weathers - Sturgis daughter was not the correct age and was named America Jane. The biography for Jesse on Find a Grave shows his daughter America Jane married Thomas Valentine Barrett, and Jesse and Martha Weathers were buried with their daughter America Barrett in Randolph County, AL.
