Death of John B. Duncan
On last Saturday night John B. Duncan, an aged and honored resident of our town quietly passed away at his home surrounded by his children. Death seemed to come as the result of the wearing out of life's forces and he breathed his last without a struggle and apparently without pain.

He moved from his native state to Gentry County, Mo., in an early day. From here he moved to Louisa county, Iowa, and about twenty years ago to Allerton which has been his home ever since.
Deceased was twice married, his first wife dying in Gentry County, Mo., where she lies buried. To this union three children were born, two of whom are living, R. M. Duncan of this place and A. R. Duncan of Pennsylvania. By his second marriage he had four children all living, Mrs. Jennie Morrison of Corydon, Mrs. Mollie Fox and Harry Duncan of Columbus Junction, and Miss Hattie of this place. All of these were present at the funeral except A. R. whose home was so far away that he could not reach here.

JOHN WESLEY DUNCAN. This gentleman is engaged in the lumber business in Palmyra and also handles lime, coal, hair, cement and grain. He devotes himself closely to his business and is doing well in that line in which he decided to embark a few years since. He is associated in business with his brother, Joseph B., and the lumber yard they now own was purchased by them in the fall of 1888. Mr. Duncan is quite a young man, having been born October 26, 1865, but he is showing the qualities of which the good business man is made, and carrying on his work according to the truest principles remembering that even in matters of trade, honesty is a duty as well as good policy.
James Duncan, paternal grandfather of our subject, is thought to have been born in Virginia. For many years his home was in Washington County, Tenn., and there his son James was born and reared. The latter began his lifework as a school teacher, but having been reared to agricultural pursuits he abandoned the profession after he had taught several terms and took up farming. He had come to this county and his first term of school was at Simpson Hill in South Palmyra Township. He began his farm work near Girard, but after a time removed to the village and for two years was occupied in the grain trade. He then bought land in South Palmyra township and resumed farming, giving it his entire attention until 1881, when he took up the lumber business, although he still occupied his farm. He died there in 1888. He left a widow and three children, John Wesley, Joseph B. and James T. The widow still occupies the homestead. She bore the maiden name of Abigail Proffitt. She was born in Washington County, Tenn., and is a daughter of Daniel and Sarah Proffitt, pioneers of this county. Grandfather Duncan came hither after the death of his wife and spent his last days with his son James, dying about 1863.
The birthplace of our subject was the village of Girard, but he was reared on the farm. After taking a course of study in the public school he spent a year in Shurtleff College in Upper Alton. He made his home with his parents until his marriage, then located in the village of Nilwood, but still gave his attention to farming. He lived there two years, then moved to Palmyra and entered upon the work he is now pursuing. He was married in 1888 to Miss Fannie B. Thacker, who was born in Nilwood Township and is a daughter of Zachary and Nancy Thacker, a biographical sketch of whom appears on another page of this Record. Husband and wife belong to the Baptist Church, of which Mr. Duncan's mother is also a member and his father for many years was a Deacon. Our subject and wife have one daughter living, Bertie F. Mr. Duncan votes the Republican ticket. He is connected with the Palmyra building and Loan Association and socially belongs to Palmyra Camp, No. 149, M.W.A.

John Wesley Duncan was born on 26 October 1865 at Macoupin Co. (probably), IL. He was the son of James W. Duncan and Abigail Profitt. John Wesley Duncan married Fannie Thacker in 1888.

She was born on 27 February 1939 at Wadena, Wadena Co., MN.1 She was the daughter of George Gilmore Duncan and Wilma Merle Mitchell.1 Kathleen Patricia Duncan married William George Robinson, son of Leslie Everett Robinson and Dorothy Clare Orcutt, on 8 April 1958 at Nez Perce Co., ID.

Obituary (via Findagrave.com):

Kathleen Patricia Robinson (76) passed away on January 3, 2016 at Life Care of Sandpoint, Sandpoint, Idaho. Services to be announced later in the spring.

Kathleen was born on February 27, 1939 in Wadena, Minnesota. At the age of 5 years old Kathee and her family moved to Boardman, OR in 1944 where they farmed and she and her sister Pinky, performed in many dance recitals. Kathee lived in Eastern Oregon the remainder of her youth, where she saw Bill Robinson across the street in Pendleton, Oregon. Kathee said “that’s the man I’m going to Marry.” And they were married on April 8, 1958. They sent 51 years together until Bill passed away in 2010.

They had three children, Kelly Sue Golladay, Keith William Robinson and Dennis Dale Robinson. She and her family moved all over Oregon, Washington, California and Canada, finally resting in Porthill, Idaho.

While living in Porthill, Idaho Kathee mentored at all three elementary schools. The children she mentored and taught art to were a light in her life, and she spoke of each one of them as if they were her own grandbabies. Kathee also acquired many dear friends in the teachers and staff of the schools.

Kathee loved family gathering, gardening, painting socializing, animals, music (of all kinds), Scottish ancestry, books and strategy games especially mahjong. She loved mahjong and the ladies so much; I think she would have crossed avalanche country to play mahjong on Wednesday and Thursdays with her friends.

Kathee is survived by her brother Dennis, Sister Sherryl (Pinky), daughter Kelley, Son Keith and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her father George, mother Wilma, Brother Mike, husband Bill, and son Dennis Dale.
Kathee will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her.

Martin Kitzmiller Duncan

M, b. 14 July 1846, d. 4 March 1927
     Note: Note by William Bruce Gillmore

The only one of the Duncans that I ever saw was Martin. He visited us in Kansas City in the fall of 1900 and again in 1903 or 1904. He had a large family, about all grown, and his wife had left him prior to 1900. He filed on a homestead in Texas County, Oklahoma beside the one my Father had filed on, but he never returned to it and eventually released it to my sister, Nora Gillmore. She proved up on it prior to her marriage to Mr. Brooks. Martin Duncan was about Mother's age. I think Susan and Joseph were married in Tennessee and went to Illinois about 1850 with the Hunts and Michael Devault and other kin-folks.

Martin Kitzmiller Duncan was born on 14 July 1846 at Tennessee. He was the son of Joseph Franklin Duncan and Susannah C. DeVault. Martin Kitzmiller Duncan married Lillian J. Ayars, daughter of Martin S. Ayars and Sarah Taylor Meredith, on 5 October 1875 at St. Louis, St. Louis Co., IL, Martin and Lillie had several unnamed children who died in infancy.

Martin Kitzmiller Duncan and Lillian J. Ayars were separated before 1900. Martin Kitzmiller Duncan and Lillian J. Ayars were divorced before 1903. Martin Kitzmiller Duncan married Tryphena Margaret Brooks, daughter of Josiah Wright Brooks and Martha Damarias Selby, circa 1903. Martin Kitzmiller Duncan and Tryphena Margaret Brooks were divorced between 1910 and 1927. Martin Kitzmiller Duncan died on 4 March 1927 at Flat Branch Twp., Shelby Co., IL, at age 80.
