When about twelve years of age, in September of 1851, he accompanied his parents to Missouri and settled on an undeveloped farm. About six years later he made another decisive move which brought him to the far west. Having outfitted for the trip across the plains, in May of 1857 he started on the long journey .... and they landed at Dixon, CA, on the 17th of October, after a trip of five months lacking five days.
      As a wage-earner ... Mr. Duncan remained in Solano county from 1857 until 1869, when he removed to his present location (Glenn County).
