Birth: Jul. 12, 1908
Cobb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Nov. 14, 1998
Cherokee County
Georgia, USA

Brantley Maloy was the son of James Chesley Duncan and Lydia Belle Rice Duncan. He and Bertha Gertrude Frady were married in 1929. They had 3 children. They built and ran the Skyline Cafe in Buffington and Lakeland Drive-in in Canton.

He worked for over 50 years in the Canton Cotton Mill. He started work in the late 1920's and worked 11-3/4 hours a day, Monday thru Friday, and 6-3/4 hours on Saturday for $5 a week. He had to quit school after the 3rd grade to work in the fields and help with saw milling. He was so proud of winning a pocket knife at school for being the smartest boy in the 3rd grade. A lot of people didn't know how to take him, as he wasn't a sociable person, but he was one in a million. He even boycotted his own 90th birthday party! His family all gathered to celebrate the occasion at a cook-out at his house. However,he refused to come out of the house, saying "If they want to see me, they can come in here."

Papa Duncan was a wonderful man that never complained about the hand he was dealt. We miss him very much, and we know that he is watching the Price is Right in heaven.

Happy birthday, Papa! The sunflower reminds me of your garden. I miss sitting under the hickory tree watching the hummingbirds and just visiting. I love you so very, very much!
