Jeremiah Duncan and His Descendants

 

Jeremiah Duncan, born about 1750; married Rebecca --------; probably died after 1820. Jeremiah had a land grant in Botetourt Co. VA on 27 Aug. 1794, on the James River adj. Middleton and Baldwin (VA State Land Grants, from Charles Gordon, book and page not given); on 19 Dec. 1797 he and his wife Rebecca lived in Greene Co. TN when they gave a power of attorney to Martin McFaran or McFanan to make a deed to Jacob Carper or whoever was in possession of land on Catauba Creek for which Jeremiah had previously given his bond for 408 acres to John Walker; the deed was made 13 Feb. 1798 to Coonrad Swert or Scout for 100 acres adjoining Jacob Carpers land, part of the 148 acre grant to Jeremiah (Botetourt Co. VA Deed Book 6, pg. 429, 430).

Jeremiah Duncan bought land in Greene Co. TN in 1798 (Greene Co. TN Deed Book 6, pg. 322) and 1799 (Book 4, pg. 222). Jeremiah was on the tax list in Greene Co. TN from 1805 to 1816 and taxed on 175 acres by 1809 but had no tithable males in his household (tax lists); in 1815 he was called "Jeremiah Duncan Sr." On 27 Feb. 1809, he and his son Jeremiah (9.) signed a petition in Rhea Co. TN requesting an extension of time to procure warrants for their land ("Ansearchen News" Vol. 34, 1987, Summer, #2, pg. 63, from Alma Finney, Ruth Burns and Evelyn Sigler). He was probably in Overton Co TN in 1820 (pg. 12), he and wife over age 45; his son Joseph (8.) was also there (pg. 10).

He had a brother who was killed by the British near Norfolk, VA (1891 "Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi" by Goodspeed, pg. 671, for his grandson James M. Duncan, 6.1., from Evelyn Sigler). The 1891 "Memoirs of MS" named his children as George, Jerry, Amos, Benjamin, David and two daughters. His children were further identified in the estate of his son David (7.) in 1861 in Madison Co. AL, whose heirs were David's brothers and sisters and their children (Madison Co. AL Wills, from Vol. 133 of "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 95-97, from Evelyn Sigler).

TN; died 1856 in Monroe Co. TN. Elizabeth was the daughter of Richard Chandler Sr. and sister of Mary Chandler who married his brother George Duncan (1.4.) (Blount Co. TN Deed Book U, pg. 85 and 86, 1845 deeds from Richard Chandler's heirs). Jeremiah had a land grant on the Little River in Blount Co. TN in 1827 (East TN Land Grant Book 14, pg. 108) and sold parts of it in 1850 (Blount Co. TN Deed Book W, pg. 153, 186). The family was in Blount Co. TN in 1830 (pg. 283), 1840 (pg. 99), and 1850 (pg. 68).

                  On 8 July 1854, Jeremiah deeded land on which he then lived in Monroe Co. TN to William Duncan (1.3.2.) and Richard Duncan (1.3.7.); the land adjoined Robert Carter, James Montgomery, and Fork Creek (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book P, pg. 118).

GA, to Margaret Roddy (Monroe Co. TN Will Book A, pg. 123). Chancery Court Records further name his heirs in 1874 as John E. Duncan, Margaret Roddy, James and Mary Ann Taylor, Robert and Catharine Singleton; and stated that their stepmother Mary Duncan, widow of Jeremiah, died in 1859 or 1860 somewhere in the west, leaving Samuel and Joseph, ages nine and twelve, who soon died without issue. (Box 392, "Chancery Court Records of McMinn Co. TN" by Boyer, pg. 142). Children from will:

Duncan (1.3.6.); they acknowledged the deed in Blount Co. TN (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book Q, pg. 762). Their children from the census:

                  1.3.1.1.  Mary E. Singleton, born 1844.

                  1.3.1.2.  Margaret M. Singleton, born 1846.

                  1.3.1.3.  Amelia Singleton, born 1849.

            1.3.2.  William Duncan, born 1827 TN; in Blount Co. TN 1850 (pg. 68) with parents. On 8 July 1854, William Duncan and Richard Duncan (1.3.7.) were deeded land by Jeremiah Duncan (1.3.) on which Jeremiah then lived (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book P, pg. 118). William may have died unmarried by 1863, when Robert and Catharine Singleton (1.3.1.) and James and Mary Ann Taylor (1.3.3.) deeded their interest as his heirs to John E. Duncan (1.3.6.); they acknowledged the deed in Blount Co. TN (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book Q, pg. 762).

            1.3.3.  Mary Ann Duncan, born 1830 TN; married James Taylor (b. 1828 TN) on 21 Dec. 1848 in Blount Co. TN; died after 1874 (McMinn Co. TN Chancery Court Suit). They were in Blount Co. TN in 1850 (952-132). In 1863, Robert and Catharine Singleton (1.3.1.) and James and Mary Ann Taylor deeded their interest as heirs of William Duncan (1.3.2.) to John E. Duncan (1.3.6.); they acknowledged the deed in Blount Co. TN (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book Q, pg. 762). James and Mary Ann had at least one child (census):

AR where she had moved with her daughter's family. Joseph Roddy was born 27 Sept. 1824 on Little River in Blount Co. TN (Bible), son of John Roddy who was born 1 May 1791 and died 28 April 1851 age 60 years in Blount Co. TN (Bible). Joseph Roddy died 20 June 1870 in Ringgold, GA, according to his Bible, but was listed as head of the household in the 1870 census taken 22 July 1870 (info of Alma Finney). Their Bible Record included a Duncan whose first name was not readable by the copiest, with the notation "died Oct.? 8th, 1856, Grove County, Tenn." The place of death must have been Greene Co. TN, but the person who died has not yet been identified. This may be the date of death of Margaret's father Jeremiah Duncan, whose will was probated in 1856 in Monroe Co. TN, since the bible contains the dates of birth and death of Joseph's father. The Bible was originally owned by Joseph Roddy, and was in existence in the 1930's and 1940's, but has since been lost (information and transcript of Bible record from Alma Finney).

                        Joseph Roddy has not been identified on the 1850 TN or GA census as the head of a household. In 1865, Joseph and Margaret J. Roddy of Catoosa Co. GA deeded their interest as heirs of William Duncan (1.3.2.) to John E. Duncan (1.3.6.) (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book Q, pg. 763). The family was in Ringgold, Catoosa Co.

Roddy (1.3.5.) in 1865, as heirs of William Duncan (1.3.2.) (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book Q, pg. 762, 763). He had moved to Catoosa Co. GA by 1867 when he sold land (Deed Book R, pg. 107).

            1.3.7.  Richard Duncan, born 1838 TN; in Blount Co. TN 1850 (pg. 68) with parents. On 8 July 1854, William Duncan (1.3.2.) and Richard Duncan were deeded land by Jeremiah Duncan (1.3.) on which Jeremiah then lived (Monroe Co. TN Deed Book P, pg. 118).

            1.3.8.  Elizabeth Duncan, born 1842 TN; in Blount Co. TN 1850 (pg. 68) with parents; may have died young since she was not named in her father's will in 1855.

            1.3.9.  Samuel Duncan, born 1845 TN; in Blount Co. TN 1850 (pg. 68) with parents; named in his father's will in 1855 and in the 1874 McMinn County Chancery Court Records; died soon after his mother who died in 1859-60 when he was age 12.

            1.3.10.  Josephus Duncan, born about 1851; named in his father's will in 1855 and in the 1874 McMinn County Chancery Court Records; died soon after his mother who died in 1859-60 when he was age 9.

Duncan, was born 27 Dec. 1808 (cemetery), and died 26 Nov. 1852; she is buried in the Logans Chapel Cemetery, Maryville, Blount Co. TN (from Mary Sutton). This family could not be the one in Knox Co. TN in 1830 (pg. 365 with two daughters under age 5 and one age 5 to 10) although one Benjamin F. Duncan had a land grant on Big Flat Creek on the north side of the Holston River in Knox Co. TN in 1833 (East TN Land Grant Book 17, pg. 854). The family was in Blount Co. TN in 1830 (pg. 305, with two males age 20-30), in 1840 (pg. 101), and in 1850 (pg. 112), he age 46, she age 37, which differs from the cemetery marker. Nancy Stansbury age 20 born TN was in his household in 1850. Benj. Duncan is in Blount Co. TN (#26) in 1860, age 52, without a wife, with son James age 30. On 15 Aug. 1846, S.C. Nance sold to B.F. Duncan a Negro woman Harriet about 17 and her child Margaret about 2 years for $650, witnessed by Thomas Sharp and James B. Duncan (1.5.1.) (Blount Co. TN Deed Book U, pg. 83).

Buckner, for two years; had served under numerous captains; on 23 Oct. 1820 he was age 68, his wife was living, and he had had 17 children, eight then living with him and principally small. "David" Dunnigan age 80 to 90, and wife age 50 to 60, were in Greene Co. TN in 1830 (pg. 175).

      Daniel Dunagan came from Ireland in 1780, and married Mary Duncan. He was a patriot soldier in the latter years of the Revolution. Most of the children came to Platte Co. MO, and settled near Waldron. Nicholas Dunagan was a child of Daniel's first wife, who was a -------- West, and they lived in TN. (1897 "Annals of Platte Co. MO" by Paxton, pg. 912-3). This family needs a lot more research.

      The estate of Mary's brother David Duncan (7.) in 1861 (Madison Co. AL Wills, from Vol. 133 of "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 95-97, from Evelyn Sigler) and "Annals of Platte Co. MO" by Paxton named heirs, listed below in the order given in David Duncan's estate:

      --   There was another Benjamin Duncan, born about 1760 (1830-1840 census) in the area of Limestone and Madison Cos. AL about the same time that Benjamin Duncan (6.), born about 1784, son of Jeremiah, was there. Benjamin was in Madison Co. AL in 1830 (pg. 132), bought land there in 1834 (Madison Co. AL Deed Book O, pg. 624), was there in 1840 (pg. 177), and apparently died before 1855 when his son-in-law William Sadler filed a suit to sell one of the slaves given in trust to his wife by her father Benjamin (Vol 159 of "AL Records" below). Benjamin's wife Rowena -------- died 7 Oct. 1841, age 67, in Madison Co.

      --   There was also a Jeremiah Duncan in Limestone Co. AL in 1820 on the state census, with a male and female over 21 and two males under 21 and four females under 21. It is possible this Jeremiah Duncan was related to the Duncans in Newberry and Laurens Co. SC; there is no indication he was related to Jeremiah Duncan Sr. of Greene Co. TN.
 

7.  David Duncan, born 1790 VA; married by 1815, wife unknown (Madison Co. AL Superior Court Records, Nov. 1815, pg. 312, "David Duncan and wife vs. James Hollingsworth and wife Edy", from Vol. 80, "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 12, from Donna Little and Evelyn Sigler). He died Jan. 1852 in Madison Co. AL; all his heirs were out of state so letters testamentary were issued to John Allison and Newton Wooley (Madison Co. AL Chancery Records, from Vol. 97, "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 38, from Donna Little and Evelyn Sigler).

AL" by Cowart, pg. 256); he bought more land in 1823 (Madison Co. AL Deed Book H, pg. 754). He was in Madison Co. AL in 1830 (pg. 111), 1840 (pg. 164), and 1850 (pg. 393) without a wife or family. His will in Madison Co. AL dated 13 Jan. 1852 and filed Feb. 1852 left his estate to his eldest brother George Dunkin, brother Jeremiah Dunkin, sister Rebecca Garrison, brother Benjamin Dunkin ($1.00 each); remainder to the heirs of Polly Dunkin, the heirs of Amos Dunkin, the heirs of Nancy Baker, and the heirs of Joseph Dunkin to be divided equally among them and the widows of Amos Dunkin and of Joseph Dunkin if still living; John Allison and Newton C. Worley were executors; the final settlement of his estate in 1861 named all the heirs (Madison Co. AL Probate Record 16, pg. 176, and Probate Record 25, pg. 375; from Vol. 133, "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 95-97, from Evelyn Sigler).
 

8.  Joseph Duncan, born before 1775 (age over 45 in 1820); married Mary Howard (b. 1794, state unknown) on 12 Jan. 1814 in Jefferson Co. TN, bondsman James Howard, wit. J. Hamilton; died 1848 in Overton Co. TN according to a statement by Mary Dunkin in Overton Co. TN in 1853 (Madison Co. AL Deed Book DD, pg. 235, from "AL Records" by Gandrud, Vol. 113, pg. 65, from Evelyn Sigler and Donna Little). The family was in Overton Co. TN in 1820 (pg. 10) as was his father Jeremiah Duncan (pg. 12). In 1820 he bought land from Levi Hinds on the Wolf River in Overton Co. TN and sold it in 1821 to Jeremiah Duncan (probably his father) (Overton Co. TN Deed Book E, pg. 170, 592). Fentress Co. TN was formed from Overton and Morgan Cos. TN in 1823. In 1823 he bought land on Wolf River in Overton Co. TN; the deed was recorded in Fentress Co. TN in 1835 on the oath of John Howard, a witness (Fentress Co. TN Deed Book A, pg. 259); he bought more land in Fentress Co. in 1829 (Book A, pg. 149). The family was in Fentress Co. TN in 1830 (pg. 4) and in 1833 (tax list). In 1840 the family was in Overton Co. TN (pg. 38); and his widow Mary was there in 1850 (pg. 146) and 1860 (pg. 135) with their son Jeremiah Duncan (8.4.). Also in Jeremiah's household in 1860 were Martha Duncan age 23, Mary Duncan age 19, and Lucinda Duncan age 22 or 27. It is not known what relationship they have to Joseph Duncan, but they might be children of James (8.2.).

            Mrs. Juanita H. Duncan of IN (address not included here) inquired in "Ansearchen News" Vol. 29, 1982, pg. 154, from Evelyn Sigler, if this Joseph was the father or grandfather of Rose, Sarah, Joseph, Floyd, Whit, Mart, and Theodore.

9.  Jeremiah Duncan; married but wife unknown; died between 1819 and 1823 in Rhea Co. TN. On 2 April 1808 Jeremiah Duncan and Daniel White witnessed a note from Frances Worley to Allen Massengale, which was the subject of a suit by William Baker against Worley in 1816 in Madison Co. AL Superior Court (Madison Co. AL Superior Court Records, pg. 550, from Vol. 80, "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 19, from Donna Little and Evelyn Sigler). Jeremiah was in Rhea Co. TN in 1808 when his land was surveyed (#13, Abstracts of Survey Book 1808-1810, from "TN Homesteaders and Landowners, Fourth Surveyors District; Anderson, Bledsoe, Campbell, Overton, Rhea and Roane Counties" by Hutcherson, pg. 36). On 27 Feb. 1809, Jeremiah Dunkin (9.) and Jeremiah Dunkin Sr. (his father) signed a petition in Rhea Co. requesting an extension of time to procure warrants for their land ("Ansearchen News" Vol. 34, 1987, Summer, #2, pg. 63, from Alma Finney, Ruth Burns and Evelyn Sigler). He bought lot 75 in the town of Washington, Rhea Co. TN in 1815 (Rhea Co. TN Deed Book D, pg. 131) and bought 2,500 acres on the Tennessee River in 1819 (Book E, pg. 252).

      In 1823, Jeremiah Duncan's heirs were taxed on 1000 acres on the Tennessee River and on one town lot ("Ansearchen News" Vol. 11). In court in Aug. 1839, Hiram Worly was guardian of Jeremiah's minor heirs Nancy, the wife of Caswell G. Taylor, and George W. Duncan ("Ansearchen News" Vol. 30, #2, 1983, pg. 182, from Evelyn Sigler); his estate was settled with "two of the minor heirs" on 6 April 1840 (Rhea Co. TN Will Book A, pg. 425). Jeremiah Duncan was left $1 in the will of his brother David Duncan (7.) in 1852 (Madison Co. AL Wills, from Vol. 133 of "AL Records" by Gandrud, pg. 95-97, from Evelyn Sigler). Two of his children were identified in court records, a third is possible, and there may be more who are still unidentified. See comments under Hiram Duncan (Sec. I, 8.7.2.) and John Duncan (Sec. I, 8.7.3.), listed as children of William Duncan (Sec. I, 8.7.).

      9.1.  David Duncan may be a son; on 24 March 1829, Jonathan Fine was the guardian for his heirs in a suit against William Johnson and John Day for $253, which was recovered by Fine from Johnson and Day (Rhea Co. TN Circuit Court Minute Book B, pg. 178; from index from Ruth Burns).

      9.2.  Nancy Duncan, born 4 July 1809; married Caswell C. Taylor on 29 Jan. 1833 in Carter Co. TN. Caswell was born 15 May 1795, the son of Dr. Isaac Taylor of VA (1887 "History of TN; East TN" by Goodspeed, Carter Co., pg. 1299). One of their children ("History"):

            9.2.1.  C.C. Taylor, born 12 Sept. 1845 Carter Co. TN; married in 1867 to Frances T. Williams, daughter of George D. Williams.

      9.3.  George W. Duncan, born before 1821; his guardian Hiram Worley settled his share of his father's estate in Aug. 1839, when George must have been over 18; Worley filed George's receipt with the court in April, 1840 ("Ansearchen News" Vol. 30, #2, 1983, pg. 182, from Evelyn Sigler; Rhea Co. TN Will Book A, pg. 425). This may be the George W. Duncan, born 1820 TN, who died age 30 in April 1850 in Carter Co. TN from scorfula (mortality schedule); he married Phennette or Fennetta Peoples on 3 Sept. 1844 in Carter Co. TN. Fennetta was born 1823 TN, and was in Carter Co. TN in 1850 (pg. 175) with George W. Peoples 36 TN, and Sarah Scott 8 TN. George bought land on 3 Nov. 1849 in Carter Co. TN on the west side of Rickles Ridge (Carter Co. TN Deed Book L, pg. 220).
