  • Notes 
    • Duncan was a farmer, carpenter, brick mason and millwright. He and his second wife moved to Paulding County (later renamed Haralson County), Georgia in 1842 and settled on lots of land from the government. He operated a mill that was located on the Tallapoosa River on what was later called Munroe Mill road. The Munroe family ground corn and wheat there for many years.

      Duncan owned the first brick home to be built in Haralson County. He donated the land for the Bethlehem Baptist Church.

      After the death of his first wife, Sarah (or Pheby or Ann) Phillips, in 1841, Duncan married her sister, Elizabeth Phillips.

      He was a member of the Missionary Baptist Church (Bethlehem) where he was active until his death.

      He probably died in Haralson County, Georgia. One reference gives his death date as 11 Dec 1896.

      The Thomas George Barry reference says Duncan was the son of Malcolm Munroe and Margaret Patterson, but that is probably in error.
