The state recognized tribe of Patawomeck shared the information that the lands given back to their tribe specific to the group of descendants of Foley and Elkins along with Ann Duncan and along with the marriage indenture of Robert Duncan and Ann Gallop is a group of in laws recieiving land returned to them, having been taken from the Patowemeck, said property specific to the known location of where Silent Bryant was appointed as Doeg / Tocci Skin Tributary for providing wolf skins to the British (to keep the peace). This particular land is indentured with the in - laws in a group with the wife's people being that of Silant Bryant's Foley and Elkins kin. This line is on Patawomeck Rolls as being primary Core in their State Recognized Tribal Rolls as Elinor being direct to Silant Brayant. The parties receiving their native lands back from having it taken by marriage contract of the Gov. marrying his native wife was over turned in court when domestic violence was claimed and a divorce granted and acreage, in part returned to the Patawomeck and the Doegs (Tocci)who had been removed and made tributory to supply wolf skins. This is is Virginia State Papers.

Ann married Robert Duncan before 1735. Ann, was said to be one of four daughters of Robert Gallop who died 20 May 1720 . Her father left a nuncupative will which failed to take effect as to his landed estate. [1] [2].

In 1735 the heirs of Robert (three daughters named, Elinor, Mary and Ann) sold a portion of the Deep Run Tract to George Famos, for 5 shillings (sic). It appears the wife/mother Elinor and perhaps 4th daughter (Toliver?) may have died before 1735.
