Duncan family of Faquier/Montgomery/Floyd County, VA

Duncan family of Faquier/Montgomery/Floyd County, VA

Posted: 15 Jul 2001 8:20PM GMT
Does anyone have or know where I can find information on Thomas DUNCAN of FLoyd County, VA? He had a daughter Susanna who married Andrew Akers. Thomas born circa 1780 in VA. His father was John Duncan who married Elizabeth Holtzclaw of Faquier County, VA. I have information on some of John and Elizabeth's children, but not the ones in my line, i.e., Thomas DUNCAN. Does anyone know who Thomas Duncan married? I found where John DUNCAN and Elizabeth HOLTZCLAW are buried...in Indian Valley...just small rocks with their initials and death dates. Susanna is buried in ALum Ridge, Floyd Co., VA. Any help or places I could start would be very much appreciated. THanks!

There is a lot of information on Duncans there. My husband, William Jones, lineage on his mothers side comes through John Duncan and Elizabeth Holtzclaw. We have no documentation on anything yet, but found a lot of information on this web site. You said that John and Elizabeth are buried in Indian Valley. Which Virginia county is that in? Would like to hear from you.

My greatgrandmother was Matilda Julina Duncan Boyd and they lived in the Indian Valley area of Floyd County. I wonder if there are any connections here. I would love to know who her parents were.

I read your message with great interest. My maiden name is Duncan. My Father was E.W. b.1900, Grandfather John F. b.1872, GGF Abel b.1838, Peter b.1803, Blanch b.1775, John b.1741, John b.1715. I have been unable to go back beyond this so this info is a big help with my search. My ancestors all lived in Va. for many years, then migrated to Ohio and Illinois. I don't have a lot of info but will share what I have.

The book"American Families with British Ancestry" by Burke
takes our lineage back to Johannis Duncanni, who died before
1449. He was of Rothybrisbane, Aberdeen, Scotland, his
decendants: David, living 1470> Allan, b. ca 1460> William,
b. ca 1501> John, b. 1531> Thomas, b. 1569> Peter, b. 1597> Peter, b. 1624> John, b. 1648> James, d. intestate in 1749. This is our connection. James was the father of John,
b. 1715, that married Wilkie McClannahan. John and Wilkie
were the parents of John Duncan, b. 1741 that married Eliz-
abeth Holtzclaw. James also had a daughter, Elizabeth, that
was named with John, b. 1648 as his grandchildren, and the
children of James and his wife, Molly Browning.
This Lineage goes on to name Robert Duncan as a son of
James ( I have seen no other evidence of this). Continuing:
Robert, b.1715 (not in John's will written in 1716)> John, b. 1753> Moses, b. 1766> John, b. 1796> William Weslely, b.
1848> John Thomas, b. 1851> and lastly Alexander Edward
Duncan, a Baltimore banker for which the ancestry was done.
I tried to attatch the lineage to an e-mail, but it failed. You can find this book (3 inches thick) in a larger library ( we have
about 60,000 people here) on may get it through inter-Library
loan, or get a Library to make a copy of the page. there is only one Duncan Bio-lineage, and they are in alphebetical order, so it is not hard to find. Other Duncan may benefit from
this lineage, as there are lots of other children, marriages, which could to many other Duncan. That is why I continued past James Duncan, which connects his son,John Duncan, b. 1715 to John, b. 1741 and his son, Blanch, Sr., b. 1775.

This is really an interesting bit of information. My husband is related on his Mother's side of the family through John and Elizabeth Holtzclaw. My husband's grandfather was Jacob Duncan and gr grandfather is Elijah Duncan. We are very much interested in trying to locate a library that has the book which you mention.

The lineage of Alexander Edward Duncan of Baltimore, MD,
published on pg.2665 in Burke's "American Families with
British Ancestry" may have been taken from a manuscript by
Gustav Anjou available on FHL microfilm 928,019 and FHL book
929.273 D912a. "The Duncan Family" is one of over 100
genealogies done by Mr. Anjou for wealthy clients.

As with any lineage, it must be proven. There are provable
errors in the original manuscript by Mr. Anjou. Please see
my post dated 28 May 1999, subject: "The Duncan Family" by
Gustave Anjou, in the archives of the Duncan mailing list at
Rootsweb.com.

An article about the reliability of the genealogy work of
Gustav Anjou was compiled by Mr. Robert Charles Anderson,
CG, FASG of Derry, NH, and published in Volume 19, Numbers 1
& 2, 1991 of the Genealogical Journal of the Utah
Genealogical Association, PO Box 1144, Salt Lake, Utah
84110. The title of the article is: We Wuz Robbed! (FHL
book call number 973 D25gj)

There is also an article online about Mr. Anjou:
