      Pgs.94-99, Rev. WILLIAM DUNCAN, 1776-1846; religious activity in MO 1830-1846.
            We are fortunate in finding a sketch of the life of this very useful man, written by his son, Dr. W.H. Duncan. The MO Baptist Historical Society, as the custodian of all obtainable records of Baptist history in MO, has furnished the material for this sketch.
            Rev. William Duncan was born in Amherst Co., VA, 22 Feb. 1776. His father, Rev. John Duncan, was a Baptist preacher and contributed largely to the overthrow of the union of church and state in America. When about twenty years of age, William was truly converted and united with the local Baptist Church. Very soon thereafter he entered upon his life work as a minister of the gospel. ... He became pastor of Ebenezer, Mount Moriah and Pedlar Churches in Amherst Co., and of Rock Fish, once Jonesborough in Nelson Co. Some of these churches he served continuously for 37 years. He was married to Miss Sally Henly while quite a young man. This union was blessed with eight children, two sons and six daughters. The children had sought homes in the then new state of MO. That the parents might be still in close contact with their children, the father, in 1830, resigned the pastorate of the churches ... and moved to Callaway Co. MO. After eight years of service in Callaway Co., he moved to Howard Co. and secured a home two miles south of Fayette, the county seat. During the time of his residence in Howard Co., he served five churches at various times. ... In October, 1846, he was present at the meeting of the Mount Pleasant Association at Ebenezer Church in Randolph Co. While preaching to a large congregation, he was attached by a congestive chill; he was able to ride to his home some twenty miles distant, but was then placed on his dying bed, where he died about 48 hours later. He had been pastor of the church in Huntsville, Randolph Co., for eight years.
