It is not known with certainty which of the foregoing land grants were to Josiah Duck Sr. and which to Josiah Duck Jr. Likely the 1807 grant was to Josiah Sr. since Josiah Jr. would only have been 6 years old. The grants from 1826 on were likely to Josiah Jr., who was mattied in 1817. Josiah Sr. was 66 at the time of the 1826 grant and had died before the 1842 grant.
