  1. i feel really silly i just seen duck and my heart dropped Van aka Vanderbilt Duck who married Hattie Mae Ivy or Ivorey please let me know if that rings a bell thank you


  2. I do have a Vanderbilt “Vandy” Duck who is the son of Lem/Lim Morris Duck. I can’t confirm his spouse, Hattie Mae because I can find no record of her with him. But if I have the right Vanderbilt Duck aka “Van/Vandy”, I will add Hattie Mae to the family tree as well as their children if you like. If you can share obituaries or funeral programs, it would be much appreciated. I can also send you the censuses for the Duck family. My email is
