Surnames Saturday - DUNCAN

On previous Saturdays, we have reported all of the known ancestor lineage surnames through  the great-grandparent surnames (see earlier Saturday Surname posts in the left column, scroll down - back into 2009).

From the "round of sixteen" - great-great grandparents (scroll down a bit...) - we have already reported six of the eight male surnames, two are unknown (from Denmark). Five of the eight on the female lines are known: ROLEN, BUTLER, CARLE, SIMMONS, and DUNCAN; these will be reported next.

Today, we finish the great-grandparents and will look briefly at DUNCAN.

Ann Eliza DUNCAN (1842-1879) married Elias WILLIAMS (1838-1920) on 20 Apr 1862 in Mercer Co, Illinois. They had 3 children who lived to adulthood. When the youngest of these, Josephine, was 3 years old, they moved to Iowa in 1875... first to Scranton, then to Coon Rapids shortly thereafter, where they lived the rest of their lives.

Ann was the daughter of Braxton DUNCAN (1798-1859) and  Araminta KIRK (1813-1855). Braxton was the son of Charles DUNCAN (1761-1838), a Revolutionary War soldier from Virginia (1777-1780).

Families are Forever!  ;-)
