Gospel preacher listed on Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers of 1899.

Duncan Howard Stirling, the son of Duncan Stirling and Harriet Ann Trout, was born 17 July 1872, Meaford, Grey Co., Ontario and died 12 July 1902 in St. Catharines, Ontario. He married Louisa Victoria Campbell McClure on March 7, 1896 in Toronto, York Co., Ontario. She was born 04 Feb. 1871 in Scarborough Twp., York Co., Ontario. He attended the Nashville Bible School 1895-96. Listed as from East Toronto, Ontario.

On February 12, 1902, another good and useful man went from us in the person of Brother D. H. Stirling. Being only twenty- nine years of age, he was just entering upon what might have been, and likely would have been, the most useful years of his life. He has accomplished much good where he labored; and although he now rests from the toils and cares of earth, his works will follow him. He was a good preacher—mild, yet firm and true; full of hope and trust. But few men would have accomplished the same amount of work as he in the same physical condition. One of his favorite and best sermons was from this text: "Blessed are they that do his commandments." One with such a thought uppermost in his life will not wander very far from the path of rectitude. Ere this he has realized the meaning of that glorious promise. Faith is now lost in sight, and hope is changed into sweet fruition. Tired? No, not tired now, but resting where joy is unalloyed and bliss is forever sweet. The greater part of his work was done in and around Beamsville, St. Catharines, and Jordan—all in Ontario, Canada. My first acquaintance with Brother Stirling was at the Nashville Bible School, in 1896. Since 1898 I have been intimately acquainted, with him. I knew him to be a faithful worker and a true Christian. He leaves a young widow and two sweet little girls, a father and mother, a brother and sister, and a host of friends to mourn his departure. S. M. JONES. -Gospel Advocate, 1902, p. 314.
