S. J. DUNCAN, one of the leading and substantial citizens of Orange township, whose farm of 240 acres is one of the most valuable properties in this section, was born in Orange township, near Kirkwood, O., August 26, 1863. His father, Thomas Duncan, who now lives in comfortable retirement, having reached the age of eighty years, came to Shelby county in early manhood and during all his active life followed farming.
S. J. Duncan has been engaged in fanning and stock raising ever since leaving school, beginning on the home farm and afterward coming to his present one, on which he has done a large amount of improving. It requires considerable practical knowledge and a large measure of good judgment to successfully operate as large an estate as that owned by Mr. Duncan. Not only is he numbered with the prosperous agriculturists, but he has long been considered one of the township's representative men in public affairs and has served with the greatest efficiency as turnpike superintendent and as township treasurer.
Mr. Duncan was married to Miss Minnie Mclntosh, who is a daughter of William Mclntosh, one of the substantial farmers of this county, and they have two children: Anna, who married Clyde Portoff, and Pansy. Mr. Duncan and family are members of the Baptist church. He has always been identified with the democratic party.
