David Duncan was age 63 on 13 August 1855, had legally disposed of his land warrant for 40 acres, petitioned for additional bounty land. His widow Lucy Duncan age 83 when she applied for a pension in 1880, resides at Pickens Co., AL and has so resided for 27 yrs. She married (as Lucy Eddington) said David Duncan, in the month of June 1813 in Fairfield District, SC; he died at Fayette Co. AL on 8 June 1862; they had 11 children:
                  First, Betsey was born on 9 June 1814 and died on 9 June 1830, these dates were shown by a family record kept by my said husband which was destroyed by robbers, who came to my house during the late war between the states, and destroyed my family Bible and other valuable books and papers. And then the fact that her death occured (sic) on her 16th birthday has never been effaced from my memory. Second, Emeline was born in Aug. 1815 and died on 10 August 1876. Third, David Duncan born Dec. 26, 1816 and is still living. Fourth, Caroline born in Nov. 1818 and is still living. Fifth, Mary born Jan. 1823 died Dec. 12, 1879.

Ninth, Jasper born June 1833 and is still living. Tenth, twins born in 1835 and died in infancy. All of said children except Betsy were born in Anderson District, SC.
                  She further declares that her oldest child Betsey was born on 9 June 1814 in Fairfield District, SC where they then resided and that in the fall of said year her said husband returned from the War a short time and removed her and her child to the home of his relatives in Anderson District, SC, and left us there and returned to the Army, and all our other children were born in Anderson District, SC. ... (On margin - In a former affidavid (sic) filed by applicant she may have reversed the order of the births of Drucilla and Jasper. If so it was a mistake of the draftsman and not observed by affiant (sic) at the time. This is correct.) Dated 18 May 1880.

"Cavalry" was frequently abbreviated "Calv" and spelled "Calvary." Did not usually copy the schedule of property unless it listed land.
