But in case she shall marry then to allow her only the one third of the income aforesaid and if she lives longer than until the majority of my younger child, then I allow her the one third of the income of my real estate during her life. It is my wish that my son Jacob may live with his mother upon the farm as long as he remains single, and that he be allowed a good living ... the event of his marriage I hope and trust that such arrangement will be made by my executors as will be satisfactory to him with? ?? to my children. Item: I have a tract of land containing in all somewhere about 250 acres known as the Jefferson place. It is my will that my executors sell the whole or such part or parts of the tract as they may deem expedient either at public or private sale and for such price and upon such terms as they may think proper ... Item I have already given to my son George 100 acres of land where he now lives in consideration of his services rendered to me after he became of age - but there is perhaps 50 acres more in the same tract, which I allow him to have at $2.50 per acre on account of his share of my estate, and I do hereby authorize and empower my executors to make him a conveyance of the said tract. Item: When my youngest child comes of age, or as soon thereafter as conveniently may be, I desire my executors to sell the whole of my real estate upon such terms... and the proceeds of the sale together with the proceeds remaining of the personal estate ... it is my will and desire that it be equally divided among all my children share and share alike except that the advances previously made to any of my children shall be deducted out of the share respectively, and excepting also the widow's right of dower as before mentioned, which is to remain in the land during her life. Item: I am indebted to my son Jacob for one years services since he became of age, for which I allow him the young horse called Mike and his saddle and bridle, and $25 worth of other property. Item: I do hereby constitute, ordain and appoint my two sons John Duncan and Jacob Duncan and my friend George Means of Clarion County to be executors of this my last will and testament with full power ...

Pg.327-328: Manor Township. ... [W]hen the Duncans became the owners they determined not to sell in small tracts. ... The Duncan portion of the manor remained undivided until about eighteen years after the death of Robert Duncan. By his will, dated April 5, and registered May 2, 1807, he directed that the residue of his real and personal estate, after paying his debts, should be divided into fifteen parts, nine of which he devised and bequeathed to his wife Ellen Duncan, and six to his daughter Mary. By proceedings in partition, No.32, March term, 1825, in the court of common pleas of this county, 651 acres and 21 perches of the lower part, and 580 acres and 57 perches of the upper part, were awarded to and taken by Thomas Duncan, and 1,130 acres and 141 perches of the central part were awarded to and taken by Ellen and Mary Duncan, under and by virtue of the decree of the court made on March 24, 1825. Thomas Duncan was appointed a puisne (MAD: younger or inferior) judge of the supreme court of Pennsylvania, March 14, 1817, which position he filled until his death, in the spring of 1827. By his last will and testament he authorized his executors to sell and dispose of all his estate, except what he had specifically devised and bequeathed. As he did not specifically devise his manor lands, they were first advertised for sale by Eben S. Kelly, agent for the executors, July 26, 1828. The executors having, at their own request, been discharged from their executorship, without selling these lands, Thomas Chambers was appointed administrator, with the will annexed, who, through his agents, whom he selected after Mr. Kelly's death, disposed of them, viz.: 349 acres and 7 perches to John Christy and Moses Patterson, June 5, 1833, for $3,839.45; 304 acres and 33 perches to John R. Johnston, July 1, 1835, for $2,437.60; 147 acres and allowance to William Ehinger, August 2, 1842, for $1,029; 17 acres and 93 perches to Rev. Gabriel A. Reichert, January 13, 1845, for $123; 111 acres and 17 perches to Mary and Eliza Sibbett, June 12, (MAD: no year given) for $777.70. The records do not show to whom the residue, or 305 acres and 88 perches, adjoining the eastern line of the tract sold to Christy and Patterson, was conveyed. It is said to have been owned by David McLeod and John McGraw, both of whom have been dead for many years.
Ellen and Mary Duncan sold their part of these lands thus: 349 acres and 140 perches to John Mechling, March 16, 1835, for $4,200, and to Daniel Torney 330 acres and 149 perches for $2,887; 108 acres and 34 perches to John Houser, December 28 (MAD: no year), for $324; 222 acres to Jacob and Joseph Hileman, May 22, 1838, for $666; and 106 acres and 64 perches to Jacob Wolf, for $318. Mechling sold his tract to Charles Montgomery, May 3, 1837, for $8,500 - an advance of $4,300 in less than two years.
