    Marriage Record, 1811-1826
      Pg.48: William Dunhen (could be read as Dunkin), marriage, 10 Oct 1816, married to Mary Miller, Officiator: John Cox
    (GD: This is the William Duncan who is listed as the heir of John Miller in Union County, IN Probate Bk A, page 126 and Union Co. IN Deeds B-439. Taken together they show that William married Mary Miller first and then Elizabeth (Emmert) second. This also makes it possible that William Duncan, who moved to Boone Co., IN, was the father of George W., John R., and Abraham.)
