An Old Resident Gone

J. A. P. Duncan an old and respected Citizen Passes Away at his home

In Mercer County Near Lineville

Mr. Joseph Duncan, one of the best known and most highly esteemed old farmer citizens of Mercer county, died at his farm home, 2 miles southeast of Lineville, on last Saturday morning, after an illness of several weeks. He was first attached by a stomach trouble which developed into a tumor of a malignant character, and later an effusion of blood on the brain ensued producing paralysis, which was the immediate cause of death. His end was mercifully painless and he went to his long rest as if sinking in to a gentle slumber. Thus passes to his reward a citizen whom to know was to respect and esteem. As a husband and father he was ever affectionate, kind and indulgent and in his death the family have suffered an irreparable loss and a sore bereavement. They have the sincerest sympathy of the community in their time of sorrow.

The following was contributed by Rev. J. D Houston:

Joseph Duncan was born March 26, 1837 in Jackson county, Mo., was married to Amandy Bryan May 5th, 1859. She died Sept. 1860, one child was born to this union, Laura Foxworthy, who is still living. He was married to Margaret Earley Sept. 20th, 1867; 6 children were born to this union, 3 boys and 3 girls, all living except two. He came with his parents to Mercer county when a small boy; he departed this life in Mercer county, Mo. Dec. 5th, 1908 at his home, surrounded by his family. He was a man of unquestionable reputation, and was one of Mercer county's best citizens. While not a member of any church, yet he was never known to say or do anything against church work, but he was always glad to learn of good meetings. As a neighbor he was kind and generous; he had no enemies, neither was he an enemy of anyone. His funeral was preached by the writer at his home to a large and sorrowing congregation. His body was laid to rest in the Evergreen cemetery to await the resurrection day. Peace to his ashes.
