DeRuel or Duvall how to structure the LNAB

+3 votes
157 views
There is a lot of discussion out there on  the correct LNAB of this woman.  I can find just as many sources that call her DeRuel as Duvall.   However, we need to pick one name and do the final merge in this family.

The other active profile manager can provide her input, here is mine.   I believe her LNAB should be DeRuel, as it is the recognized maiden name of Edward Moberly's wife in the DAR and SAR databases.   I believe the confusion with Duvall was caused by well meaning biographers trying to find a family for Elizabeth and there were two Elizabeth Duvalls born in Maryland in that time period.   One who died without marriage, albeit, this has not been confirmed and one who married William Fowler.   My other inclination towards the last name of DeRuel is that a grandchild was given DeRuel as a middle name.

Any input from anyone will help us with this decision.

Thanks Robin for posting this question and hope that we get some guidance. I enjoy working on this part of the Mobley family with you! Collaboration is key.

Here is documentation supporting DuVall.  According to Mobleys in America, Part 1:

"Edward Mobberly, (Sr.), b. 5/13/1696, ... (2??) ca. 1748/9 Susannah DuVall [she was wife in 1751 per deed] [Formerly she was said to have been Susannah DeRuel] ...NOTE: The name DeRuel has not been found in any published record other than Wm. Woodward Dixon's book "The Mobleys and Their Connections" [which was cited in George Hill's book "Hill and Hill/Moberly Connections of Fairfield Co., SC"}. "
