Duce, Joseph (aka Joseph Jennings)

Neither Joseph nor Lydia is designated with a racial marker in the church record (HCFC); Joseph’s death date is speculative. FEH, p. 1, under ABDA says “Duie alias ‘Ginnings’ a mulatto died Jan 17 1789,” but there is no citation for the original record. No deaths appear in the Hale Newspaper collection for that date. There is an undated probate packet for Joseph Ginning with a meager inventory in Hartford.
