      Pg.91-94, Rev. LEWIS DUNCAN, 1806-1872; religious activity in MO 1838-1872.
            Rev. R.S. Duncan, author of the History of MO Baptists, was a son of Rev. Lewis Duncan. We find in the autobiography of the son a good outline of his father's life. From this source is gleaned the brief sketch here written.
            Elder Lewis Duncan was born March 1, 1806, in Culpepper Co. VA, afterwards a part of Rappahannock county. Lewis Duncan was the son of James and Dorcas Duncan. His mother was a daughter of Spencer Butler of Culpepper Co. VA. Lewis Duncan was married on 11 Sept. 1827 to Miss Harriet Kennaird, daughter of David Kennaird of Culpepper Co. VA. He united with the Mount Salem Baptist Church and was baptized by Rev. William F. Broaddus, D.D. ... On 16 Oct. 1828 he started for MO with his wife and baby. He ended the journey about the middle of the following December. Established his home in Lincoln Co. MO, about 13 miles southwest of Troy, the county seat. He soon thereafter united with a Baptist Church called Antioch, near present Warrenton, now the capital of Warren Co. MO. A few years later he removed his membership to Troy Baptist Church, now called Sand Run Church, and meets some four miles south of Troy. ... His son, Rev. R.S. Duncan, said of his final and fatal illness ... He fell asleep on the Lord's day, December 15, 1872, and on the 17th was buried in the family cemetery, between his mother and the mother of his children."

1882 "A History of the Baptists in MO" by R.S. Duncan (FHL book 977.8 K2d; also from Donald Duncan 4/1991)
      Pgs.576-579, Bear Creek Association.
      LEWIS DUNCAN - In an early day, two brothers, named respectively John and George Duncan, emigrated from Scotland to the United States. John settled in the state of Virginia (then a Province), and George settled in Pennsylvania. From these two men it is believed that all by that name in the United States have descended.
      Lewis Duncan, the subject of this sketch, was a native of Virginia, and was born in Culpepper (sic) County, the first day of March, 1806. The old homestead was about eighteen miles northwest of Culpepper court house, and six miles from Gaines' Cross Roads.
      His father was James Duncan, a native of Fauquier Co. VA, and his mother's maiden name was Dorcas Butler, a daughter of Spencer Butler, of Culpepper Co. VA. They were in moderate circumstances; educational advantages were not such then as now, and he received only a partial common-school education while growing up. But when near his maturity he managed to acquire a sufficient knowledge of the English branches to teach school. In the school-house he was at home. By his mild but positive manner of government, he used to control with ease quite a number of young men, some of whom were quite rude, as was not unfrequently the case in those early days. After his ordination to the ministry he quit teaching school. He was the middle son of seven children - six sons and one daughter - none of whom are now living except it be Dr. William Duncan, of Texas, who is now quite elderly, if living.
      Lewis Duncan was married September 11, 1827, to Harriet Kinnaird, youngest daughter of David Kinnaird, of Culpepper Co. VA. She was to him a help-meet indeed, for twenty-five years; and of her was born to him eleven children - eight sons and three daughters - all of whom lived to manhood and womanhood. He professed conversion and was baptized in the spring of 1828.
      On the 16th of the following October, he, with his family - my mother and oldest brother, who was but an infant - started for Missouri, where he landed about the middle of the following December. The trip was made in an old-fashioned Virginia carry-all. He settled, lived and died in Lincoln County.
      For twelve years he lived in the vicinity of Troy, the county seat, and was a member successively of the following churches, viz.: Antioch (now defunct), Troy (now called San Run), and Sulphur Lick.
      .... In 1840 he moved to the northwestern part of Lincoln County and subsequently became one of the constituent members of Indian Creek Church, Pike County. He was pastor successively of the following churches, viz.: Sulphur Lick and New Salem in Lincoln County; Zion, Montgomery County; Indian Creek, Pike County; and Pleasant Grove, in Lincoln County. His active ministerial career lasted about twenty-five years, during which time he faithfully performed his mission in "feeding the flock of God," for which he was eminently fitted.
      .... In March, 1852, he was called upon to follow to her grave the companion of his life. .... My mother died in the same faith in which she had lived. .... He died like a babe going to sleep ... on the Lord's day, December 15, 1872, and on the 17th he was buried in the family cemetery, between his mother and my mother.

His father, William, who was a farmer and mechanic, probably a native of Ireland but was reared in the Old Dominion, where he died about the year 1847, aged eighty years. ...

William McCormick first married Lucy Stallard, and to them were born five children: Isabella, who married John Mays; Elizabeth, who became the wife of William Kinzie; Mary, Mrs. John Duncan; Sallie, Mrs. John Rice; and William, Jr., who came to Missouri in the latter part of the '30s. All the members of this family have been called to their final rest. After the death of his first wife Mr. McCormick married Miss Mary Roe, also a Virginian. Of their three children, Julia Ann married a Mr. McCarthy in Virginia; John F. is the second; and Caroline V. married a Mr. Smoot, and died in Colorado Springs, where she had gone for her health. John F. McCormick lived until his eighteenth year in his native state ... two years after his arrival in this state he married Eveline Jamison, who was born in this county September 27, 1825, ...
