The 1880 Census shows Granville and his wife Emma Jane (and their son Hunter) living in Ellicott City, Maryland and employed as servants at the Patapsco Female Institute there along with other families from Charlottesville—Henry and Betty Ragland, and Joseph and Rosa James and their daughter Bettie James.

The principal of the school was Sarah Nicholas Randolph, great-granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson.

In Granville Duvall’s obituary (above) it was mentioned that he was an “excellent cook and in years gone by his services were in great demand on camping trips made by local huntsmen and fisherman.” In November 1900 the Daily Progress reported that Granville Duvall accompanied the Armistead Hunting Club as cook on a ten-day annual hunt at their 300-acre hunting ground in Augusta County, Virginia.
