Subject's mother, Jane (Malise) Duncan, was born in Glasgow, Scotland, about 1805, and is now living. Her marriage with subject's father was blessed by birth of Andrew, Robert M. (a soldier in an IL regiment), David (subject), Daniel M. (soldier in the 4th NY Heavy Artillery) and Jane (married to James Kelley, who served in a PA Regiment). In 1865 subject married Mary, dau. of John and Jane (Miller) McDugal, of Muhlenburgh Co., and to them have been born David J., Jane, Daniel M., William G., Annie, Neil, Robert and Andrew. Mr. Duncan is a member and superintendent of the coal mining company at Echols, Ohio Co. KY ... Presbyterian, Republican, member A.F. & A.M.

KY, ... until he left there, nearly three years ago, and removed to Columbia [Maury Co.], TN, where he labored until his death. He conversed freely before his death about his future prospects. On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 4, the substance of the following conversation took place. I said to him: "Brother Maxey, I did not get to go to our last meeting of Presbytery. ..." ... Rev. T.J. Duncan (Methodist) said: "Brother Maxey, if you have anything to say to your wife, children, father, sister, or friends, you might say it now." ... "His wife said, "If it should come to the worst, where do you want to be laid to rest!" He replied, "On that grand old hillside where I used to play in childhood, if it suits you all." Brother Duncan said, "But Brother Maxey, would you not like it better, if it suited all around, to be buried here in the midst of your flock, where they could watch over your grave and do you honor?" ... The burial services were conducted by the Rev. J.S. Grider of Bowling Green, KY, ... assisted by the Rev. T.J. Duncan, former pastor here of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and co-laborer here with Brother Maxey ...
