Death of Widow Duncan
Died, at the family residence in Smithfield December 10, 1877, Mary, widow of the late George J. Duncan, aged 72 years and 7 months. Mary Baxter was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, May 12, 1804, and was married March 15, 1825. They removed to Ohio, where they resided a number of years, settling in this county in 1852. She lived with her husband 45 years, until his removal by death in 1870. Mrs. Duncan was the mother of sixteen children, twelve of whom she raised to manhood and womanhood, and nine of them surviving her. All the surviving children were privileged to attend the funeral services, which were held at Barker’s Chapel, Tuesday; and were buried beside her husband, and among her departed kindred, in the Hamilton Cemetery. – Waterloo Press (Angola Herald, Angola, IN, December 26, 1877)
