      Pg.786-787: THOMAS DUNCAN, who is living a retired life in Mitchellville, has been a resident of Polk County for the long period of thirty-five years. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland, April 28, 1817, and is a son of William and Margaret (Smith) Duncan, who were also natives of the same country. His father was a representative business man of Glasgow, and in that city engaged in the wholesale grocery trade until 1820, when he bade good-by to his native land and with his family sailed for America. He located near Granby, Shefford County, in the Province of Quebec, where he purchased land and engaged in farming until advanced age forced him to lay aside all business cares, when he removed to Granby and there lived a retired life until his death, which occurred several years ago. His wife, the mother of our subject, died some twenty years previous, after which he was a second time married. By the first union nine children were born, six of whom are living at this writing in 1890 - Margaret, widow of John Parker, resides in Granby, Canada; Thomas is the next younger; John also makes his home in Granby; William is a citizen of Atlantic, Iowa; Janet is the wife of W. Hale of Granby; and James is also living in Atlantic. Our subject spent but three years of his life in his native city when he was brought by his parents to the province of Quebec, then Lower Canada. During his youth he received a common-school education and at the age of 20 years left home ... making his way to Vermont he secured a position as a farm hand, ... continuing to reside a greater part of the time in that State until 1855, he then followed the course of emigration westward and became a resident of Polk County, Iowa. ... He purchased 52 acres of wild land on section 22, Beaver Township, and after erecting a log cabin began the work of developing and improving a farm. After a number of years he sold and purchased a 160 acre tract in the same township, on which he resided until March, 1890, when he leased his land and removing to Mitchelville, retired to private life. In a pleasant home, furnished with the comforts and many of the luxuries of life, he and his wife expect to spend the remainder of their days. The 2nd of May, 1842, witnessed the celebration of the marriage of Thomas Duncan and Sarah Todd, who have now traveled life's journey together for more than 48 years. Mrs. Duncan is the daughter of Simon and Anna (Wood) Todd, the former a native of New York, and the latter of Canada, both of English parentage. By occupation her father was a farmer and followed that business in Shefford County, Canada, until his death. Mrs. Todd survived her husband a number of years, passing to her final rest about 1868. In their family were twelve children, eight of whom are now living - James, Caroline, Peter, Lydia, Sophia, Esther, Robert L. and Sarah.
      Mr. and Mrs. Duncan are the parents of eight children - Elizabeth, wife of Alexander C. Tigner, a farmer of Howard County, Neb.; Robert, a farmer of Sac County, Iowa; Margaret, wife of J.C. Garret, who is engaged in agricultural pursuits in Camp Township, this county; Mary, deceased; Thomas H. who makes his home in Sac County; Sarah A., at home; William C. a resident of Calhoun County, Iowa; and one child who died in infancy. Mr. Duncan ... owner of a highly improved and valuable farm in Beaver Township besides some property in Mitchellville. Republican, member of the Old Settlers Association of Polk County. His wife holds membership in the Methodist Episcopal Church and to its support Mr. Duncan contributes liberally, although he himself is not a member. (MAD: Atlantic, Cass Co. IA; 1850 Chittenden Co.

      Pg.407: On Friday evening, January 6, 1871, Edward Kennedy, a respectable Irish farmer, living alone a few miles west of Hopkinton, was shot while he was preparing his supper, by John Duncan, who had been at work for some months for a Mrs. Cook, who lived not far from Kennedy's. No suspicion of foul play seems to have been entertained by the neighbors until the following Tuesday, when, upon investigation, the old man was found lying on the floor of his house, dead. Duncan had gone, but he was suspected, followed and arrested. At the next term of the District Court, at Delhi, in April, 1871, Duncan was indicted for the murder and transferred to Buchanan County for imprisonment and trial.
