SC Feb. 22, 1852, a son of Perry Emory and Mary Anne (Hill) Duncan, the former born in Greenville, SC, in 1800, and the latter in Wilkes Co. GA in 1814. The Duncan family is of staunch old Scottish stock, the great-grandfather of the subject having immigrated to America from the "land of hills and heather" and settled in VA, whence he later removed to SC. His son, the grandfather of George Washington Duncan, was a loyal soldier in the Continental line in the war of the Revolution, having taken part in the battles of Cowpens, SC, King's Mountain, NC, and other engagements. Perry E. Duncan amassed a very considerable fortune, owned a fine plantation about 5 miles northwest of Greenville, and was also the owner of a large number of slaves prior to the Civil war. He also had a large cotton plantation 7 miles below Albany, Dougherty Co. GA, where the family passed the winter seasons. He was a Union man when the matter of secession was brought up, but when SC seceded he gave to the state his unqualified support, having given his signature to the ordinance of secession. His advanced age rendered him ineligible for active service in the army of the Confederacy, but three of his sons were loyal and faithful soldiers in the Confederate ranks, in the Army of North Virginia, and participated in the first battle of Bull Run. ... One of the number, Col. Robert Perry Duncan, was promoted chief of staff to Gen. R.H. Anderson of SC. ... The parents of George W. Duncan died while he was still a boy.
