"The News Herald" Hillsboro, Ohio, Thursday, Feb. 11, 1915, Page 7 (transcript from Margie Duncan Taylor 8/2001; MAD: Highland Co. OH)
John W. Duncan was born Aug. 6, 1828 (1838?) in Buckingham County, Va. He emigrated to this state with his parents, John and Martha Duncan, in the year 1841, when he was but 2 years old. They settled in Dodson township, not far distant from where he died, at ... o'clock Thursday, Dec. 31, 1914, at the well advanced age of 76 years, 4 months and 25 days.
"Grandpa", as he was familiarly called, was the youngest of a family of 7 children, all of whom have preceded him to that better land except Thomas Duncan, of Butler, Bates county, Mo., and Miariah Cadwallader, of Jollette, Ill.
The foundation of a noble life was laid among hardships and trials encountered in the days of the early settlers. It could be nothing else but determined perseverance and rugged strength of good character that told in the struggle with nature. Never once in all the years of his long life did he falter or seek to evade the path of duty marked by destiny for his journey.
And when we come in close communion with God and realize that nature is his handwork, it is only then that we can understand why he, in his early youth, obeyed the Master's command, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God", and united with the Dodsonville M.E. church, but in late years he became one of the charter members who made possible the erection and sustenance of the Christion Union Church of Allensburg, of which he has been a faithful member ever since.
When the last taps were sounded and he was called to go, he had so unerringly followed the precepts of his Master and so unfailingly had he followed the paths of righteousness that he stepped peacefully into eternity to meet his Savior.
He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Henderson. To this union were born two sons, Charles and Robert, of Allensburg, and one daughter, Mrs. Effie VanWinkle, of New Market. There also survives to cherish the memory of Grandpa Duncan eight grandchildren and thre great grandchildren. It is true that Grandpa has left us, but while we honestly experience a feeling of joy the good man will suffer no more but have life everlasting, yet a spirit of loneliness surrounds us, especially Grandma, for no more shall she grip the hand of this honest man. No more shall she hear his kindly words of greeting.
Yet we feel that if we should offer a regret at this time it would be because we have not heeded his sincere admonitions; because we have not accepted his experience at its true worth.
But even now it is not too late for we may yet gather inspiration from the life of Uncle John. We may follow in his footsteps though hard they may seem, and strive to emulate the character of the departed spirit. Let his life be a light to our feet, a guide to our faultering step, that we may strive on to gain the reward at the end of the journey and hear the Master's voice as Grandpa heard it, "Well done thou good and faithful servant."
(MDT: son of Thomas B. Duncan; they are both buried in the Henderson Cemetery, Allensburg, Highland County, Ohio)
GEORGE DUNCAN, widow Elizabeth, W-9845, VA, KY, IN (FHL film 970,863, National Archives Roll 863)
MAD: We have extracts from pension; "VA/WV Genealogical Data from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Records" by Wardell, Vol.II, p.56, for this George Duncan, lists "QLF 1921 from Mrs Alice V.D. PIERREPONT of Petersburg, VA, gddau of a VA RW sol George DUNCAN (& wife Ann) of Albemarle Co or Fluvanna Co, VA, whose gdf Marcus Monroe DUNCAN (also bro George & sis Eliza) b. Buckingham Co, VA, & left orphans at early age, their guardian being Junius CLAY."
Letter Sept. 28, 1921, from Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Pensions, to Mrs. Alice V.D. Pierrepont, Violet Bank, Petersburg, VA. Madam: In reply to your letter dated 30 August and received 3rd Sept., you are advised that the Revolutionary War records of this Bureau fail to afford any information in regard to Webb Kidd. In order to identify the record of any particular George Duncan, you are requested to furnish as much of the following data as possible: places of residence at enlistment and after service; approximate dates of birth and death; given names of widow; names of any Officers under whom he served.
Handwritten at bottom of letter: Webb Kidd mar. Elizabeth White, daughter of Jeremiah White. Over.
Handwritten on back of letter: Oct. 1, 1921, Violet Bank Studio, Petersburg, VA. I wish I could give you the information desired as to George Duncan. This is all I know. My grandfather Marcus Monroe Duncan was the son of George Duncan. He was born in Buckingham Co. VA. He & his brother George & sister Eliza were left orphans at an early age, Mr. Janius Clay being guardian. The Buckingham records were destroyed & our family Bible burned. I think my gr.gr.grandfather was also George Duncan of Albemarle or Fluvanna Co. -- his wife Ann & his lands on both sides of the river -- Hardware, I think. The family tradition is that he was a Rev. soldier. So he would probably be listed from one of those 3 counties as a soldier. Thanking you for any trouble, Sincerely yours, Alice V.D. Pierrepont.

AL Confederate Pension Applications, in AL State Archives, Duke - Dunn (FHL film 1,502,781)
MAD: Did not extract all pension applications for the same person if they gave no other genealogy information. Documents were extracted in order on film. Did not usually copy reason for pension request, which was frequently old age or rheumatism or feebleness; did not always copy witnesses names, which sometimes only said they knew the applicant was of good character and in need of the pension. "Cavalry" was frequently abbreviated "Calv" and spelled "Calvary." Did not usually copy the schedule of property unless it listed land. The complete pension papers should be rechecked individually, following is very brief extract of contents.
