1879 "Kansas Biographical Dictionary" from "The United States Biographical Dictionary. Kansas Volume" pub. Chicago and Kansas City: S. Lewis (from Kathy Cawley 8/2004)
Pgs.706-707: Hon. Charles Convers Duncan -- Reno.
Charles C. Duncan was born at Newark, Licking county, Ohio, April 30, 1843. His father, Daniel Duncan, was a leading Ohio Merchant, distinguished alike in public life and in trade, having represented his district, composed of Licking, Delaware, Knox and Franklin counties, in two successive sessions of the National Congress, to the first of which he was elected as a Whig in 1846, and re-elected in 1848, when the district was largely Democratic, being the only Whig elected from his district in many years. He was a prominent member of the Ohio Legislature, and served with conspicuous ability both in the House and Senate. Daniel Duncan married Mary, daughter of Daniel Convers. Mr. Convers was one of the Ohio the Ohio pioneers, settling in that State from New England, and was the father of a numerous family of children, seven of whom reached mature age. Of these the eldest daughter married General Charles B. Goddard, one of Ohio's most prominent attorneys. Judge Charles C. Convers, of the Supreme Court of Ohio, was the second child. Another daughter married Dr. Edward Stansbury, of Newark, Ohio, whose family had given several members, distinguished in public affairs, to the service of the country, one of whom, Hon. Henry Stansbury, was United States attorney general. The fourth daughter, Mary, was the wife of Hon. Daniel Duncan, a woman of much native refinement and superior cultivation.
Their son, Charles C., received his education in the common schools of his native State, and was thoroughly grounded in a knowledge of English language and literature. His school instructions were literally supplemented by the advantages of the fine library of his uncle, General Goddard, to which he had free access. Early bereft of his parents, being only six years of age when his father died, and thirteen at the time of his mother's death, he was placed under great obligations by the kindness of his uncle, in whose family he had frequent opportunities of intercourse with such men as Salmon P. Chase, Cassius M. Clay, Thomas Ewing, Sen., Bishop McIlvaine, and many others of the prominent men of the day. Such society was itself a liberal education, and to the kindness and culture of his uncle's home Mr. Duncan has always felt himself greatly indebted. On leaving school young Duncan accepted a situation as clerk in a forwarding and commission house at Cairo, Illinois, and was variously employed in transportation business on the Mississippi River.
Upon the breaking out of the war, Mr. Duncan entered the military service of the United States as clerk for Captain G.W. Graham, chief master of transportation for General U.S. Grant. Serving in that capacity but a short time, he next entered the engineers corps, with Chief Engineer William D. Faulkner, of the Mississippi squadron, and remained in that department of the service until the close of the war. Hostilities having ceased, he became Captain of the steamer Colili, engaged in the Red River trade between Shreveport and New Orleans. This position he continued to hold during the winter of 1865-6, and in the following summer came to Kansas, engaging in various pursuits, such as contracting for freights, furnishing grain to government posts on the plains, merchandising at Ellsworth, etc. In 1867 he was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives from Ellsworth county, and the following season settled on a farm in Pottawatomie county, where he followed farming and stock-raising until 1872, when he removed to his present location in Leavenworth county. Here he cultivates one of the largest farms in the State, embracing sixteen hundred acres of superior land, devoting his energies to the raising of stock and the cultivation of corn, the two great staples of a Kansas stock-farm. In this business he has been eminently successful, exhibiting the same capacity and energy which have characterized him in other pursuits in life.
In 1870 Mr. Duncan was nominated by the Democratic convention to the office of Secretary of State, and was defeated in the election that followed, although leading his ticket at the polls. In 1875 he was elected, as a Democrat, to represent his county in the State Legislature, notwithstanding the district was largely Republican in politics. Mr. Duncan has always been a Democrat, but is quite liberal in his political sentiments, and is so deservedly popular that he has been twice elected to the Legislature from Republican districts, and in the campaign of 1876, when the electoral ticket for Rutherford B. Hayes carried the district by two hundred majority, Mr. Duncan only lacked seven votes of his election.
December 11, 1861, he married Tella C., daughter of Dr. M. Effinger, a distinguished physician of Lancaster, Ohio. Mrs. Duncan is a lady of finished education and fine accomplishments, a graduate of Lancaster High School, as also of Mrs. Willard's famous seminary in New York. They have four children -- Mary Hunter, Carroll Convers, Daniel, and Addie E.
Mr. Duncan is comparatively a young man, just entering his career, and has already made his mark in the political and business circles of his adopted State, and bids fair to become one of the popular few whom his fellow-citizens will delight to honor.

His remains were brought to Terre Haute and deposited in the earth ... on the banks of his own beloved Wabash. ... (MAD: did not copy pg.213 or earlier) (MAD: Knox and Fountain Co.
