Peabodys and Duryees – Our Branch of the Family Tree (2) – December 6, 1939

This is the final section of the Duryee Family Tree with additions hand-written by Aunt Betty Duryee.


Joseph Woodward Duryee fathered five daughters, Mary, Ella (my great-grandmother),  Florence, Lillian and Lizzie (who preferred Betty, Aunt Betty Duryee).

You can see Alfred that your genealogy is one of the best, and that you come from a long line of ancestors you can well be proud of. You may have a certain responsibility to live up to, but never forget that it is just a background after all, and that it is the character of the man himself, his life and achievements that really matters in his generation. 

Tomorrow and Sunday, I will continue pictures of the Trumbull House and The End of an Era.
