Son of Robert Duncan(son). James was a famous soldier in Mexican War and was mentioned for high office but died of disease in Mobile,Alabama. Large funeral from NY up Hudson to his home in Cornwall. For some reason he appears to have been reburied at a later date at West Point. Monument appears quite modern.

Gravesite Details Monument relocated from family property in Cornwall. Assume body is with it.
