      Pg.654: Town of Adams. Levi P. Duncan, an early settler in Green county, was born in Miami Co., Ohio, Jan. 18, 1827. When a young man he engaged with a brother-in-law, Steward McMillan, to learn the trade of wagon-maker. In 1847 they came to Monroe, Green county, where Mr. McMillan opened a wagon shop, and the subject of this sketch worked with him until 1851. In that year he bought a farm on section 31, of the town of Adams. The improvements upon the land, at the time of his purchase, consisted of a partly completed log cabin and a few acres of broken land. He now has a good frame house, and quite a tract of land under cultivation. He was married in 1850, to Adeline A., daughter of Amos and Elizabeth (Haynes) Doane. They have one daughter -- Jennie. Mr. Duncan is a preacher of the Baptist denomination. He first preached, under special license, in the town of Jordan, in 1854. He was ordained at Juda, in 1858, since which time, he has been engaged in preaching at different points in Green, Lafayette and Dane counties. Their daughter, Jennie, was married to Alex. E. Patterson, who was born in Scotland, and came, when very young, with his parents to America. He grew to manhood in Lafayette county. In 1862 he enlisted in the service of the United States, and was mustered in as corporal. He served until the close of the war. He was with Sherman on his march to the sea and through the Carolinas to Washington, participating in many of the important battles of that memorable campaign. He was discharged in July, 1865, and returned home broken down in health. He never recovered his former vigor, and died April 7, 1874. Mr. and Mrs. Patterson had three children -- John, Charles and George. (MAD: no biography of Steward McMillan indexed)
