The daughter of James and Henriett Duke Bowers was Sarah, better known as Sallie Bowers.  She married Harvey D. Shadrach in Granville County, NC on February 7, 1820.  They moved to Carroll County, Virginia where they had a family of four children; Jacksa Jane Shadrach/Shadrick; George, James and Lemuel Shadrach.  Jacksa Jane Shadrach, born about 1828 married Thomas Jackson Bradner. Thier daughter, Mary A. "Polly" Bradner married Asa Barton Reynolds in 1878.  Polly and Asa are my great-grandparents. 
Please visit my Bradner and Reynolds pages for more information regarding these families.

The ancestry of Captain Henry Duke who married Elizabeth Taylor is unclear.  Some believe him to be the grandson, rather than the son of Thomas Duke and Mary Barnham.
