Research and Speculation
Charles and his family are found in Giles county Virginia in 1810:

Charles Duncan 11301 40010 00
The following is more an article about Landon Duncan than of Charles, the
reason being that Landon is the only person of whom we can attribute any
kind of relationship to Charles, and that comes by way of this very brief
statement in Landon's 1812 letter from Giles County, (West) Virginia to his
uncle Alamander Duncan, still living in Stokes County, North Carolina. The
letter is found among the the papers of Rev Landon Duncan,163 housed at Virginia Tech.
I must acquaint you that I arived to Cosin Charles' after a Journey of 7
days without any disaster or accident.
The conclusions I come to below depend on that stated relationship. It's
possible that Charles was something other than a first cousin, perhaps a
second cousin. In that event, this is all wrong. The following also
depends on the accuracy of the cited article from Genealogies of
Virginia Families. So far as I know, no one has verified any of that
data. I suspect it is a combination of fact, family legend and
speculation--the latter, in particular, with respect to the "daughters" of
John Duncan. More on that later.

Donald L West writes about Alamander in a 1999 post, found at the
NCSTOKES-L Archives on Ancestry.com:
...there are two Alamander Duncans. My Alamander Duncan was born 23 Dec
1766 and married Susannah Vaughn 14 Jan 1809 Stokes Co., NC. From my
personal family records of my grandparents Alamander was the Son of John
& Dinah Bradford Duncan. But the listed children of John and Dinah does
not show a son named Alamander. This is perplexing to me. The other
Alamander born 1777 is the son of Joseph and Jimima Marr Duncan. This
Alamander married Anne Francis. I am sure there is a connection for both of
them somewhere, but just do not know what.
This is found in a 1999 post:

Alamander had been married only a year. Clearly, the young boy was his
son. Alamander was about 44 so it's not certain just which mark belongs to
him. However, there is a good case to suggest that Landon (26-44) and Chloe
(45+) may have been living with Alamander (45+) and his wife, Susannah
I believe the following letter, found among the Landon Duncan papers, to
be the clincher. The writer's father, Owen White is probably the
so-called Goring White who married Leanna Duncan. More on that below. And
note the reference to "the Bradfords." That name also comes up again.
Back of letter is addressed to "Mr. Hiram Duncan, Blakly, Stokes County,
North Carolina." Note that the letter was "Recd this 11th Jany 1837

And then we have this from Genealogies of Virginia Families,
Tyler Quarterly, Volume I, page 217. The information was obtained from a
letter written prior to 1884 from Thomas H Robinson to Judge William M
Bradford. Note the reference to the Bradford family in the Jane Shreves
Dinah or Diana Bradford, also a daughter of John and Mary (Marr) Bradford,
married John Duncan, Jr., of Fauquier County. The loss of so many Prince
William records prevents our having much information on the Duncans, tho
they, too, appear successively in Richmond, King George, Prince William, and
Fauquier records. According to Mr Robinson, the children of this marriage
were: (1) John, "killed in the Revolution." (2) William, born 1750, married
in Fauquier County, May 16, 1780, Lydia, born 1756, daughter of Rice and
Elizabeth Duncan, removed to Harrison County, Kentucky. (3) Charles died
unmarried, was an artificer in the Revolution." (4) Joseph married in
Fauquier County Jemima Marr, probably duaghter of John Marr. (5) Rose
married in Fauquier County February 11, 1789, Leander Murphy. (6) Leanna
married January 18, 1789, in Fauquier County, Goring White, and moved to
Russelville, Kentucky. (7) Susanna. (8) Cloe. The writer has no further
information on this line.
Let's say for a moment that the above in kind of true; that
Leanna married Owen White, not Goring White, and that Susanna and Cloe were
daughters-in-law, rather than daughters. (Indeed, a reading of Jane Shreve's
letter might suggest to someone that Susanna and Chloe were sisters but we
know from Landon's letters that that was not the case.) We can then place
this family neatly into Landon's family: mother Cloe, in-law aunt Susanna
and an aunt who married a White. It fits so well that it almost has to be
If the Virginia Families paragraph is kind of true,
what else is kind of true? Could it be that John Duncan's son Charles
did marry or otherwise did not die childless? The 1787 tax list for
Fauquier county includes the following:
Duncan Charles self 0 7 10 9 25
Duncan Charles self 0 0 0 1 0 son to Charles
We have no proof that our Charles is the younger Charles but we know that
he married the previous year in Fauquier county and might very well have been
taxed. In any event, we know from this record that a young man in Fauquier
county named Charles Duncan had a father named Charles Duncan. A study of
extant land records and deeds, if they exist at all, might yield some
information on that point.
And we end up with a much clearer picture of Landon's family. If we
accept that Charles was Landon's cousin, then we can reasonably accept that
Charles's grandparents were John Duncan Jr and Dinah Bradford.
So now, let's revise the chart above with the very important caveat that
there is some theory here, that it's kind of true. It still needs
to be (dis)proved:
John Duncan, Jr

In other words, Jane, Landon, Hiram and Charles were first cousins to one
another. And, again, note the reference to the Bradford family in the Jane
We can add to this mix the fact that Charles Duncan was a generation
older than Landon. This would mean that Landon's father was probably one of
John's youngest sons and that our Charles was a grandson through one of the
elder sons. The next step is to find out more about the elder Charles. What
land records are in his name? Did he move out of Fauquier County and die
Now that I've painted a rather pretty picture, let me try to destroy
Alamander Duncan was born in 1766. If we give his mother a spread of
about 20 years for her birthing career (oops), her earliest child might have
been born c1746. That dovetails nicely with the birth of her supposed son
William (1750). It's believed that Dinah was born c1726--based on what, I
don't know, but it would be best not to assume that she had children earlier
than c1745. We don't know when Charles, another supposed son, was born. If
1746 then he'd have been about 15 when our Charles was born. But our
Charles's age works nicely to have been a son of Dinah. However,
Landon does not refer to him as an uncle but as a cousin.
We do not know who Landon's father was but his mother married Thomas Kirk
in January of 1818. Landon makes reference in his 1818 letter to his mother
and father. Clearly, he's referring to his step-father, Thomas
Kirk, who happens to have also been his father-in-law! Since Thomas was the
brother-in-law of our Charles Duncan (married to Thomas Kirk's sister),
Charles was related by marriage twice over.
Here's the in-law relationship between Landon and Charles

Excellent information for Landon Duncan is found at
Addtional online resources are:
William Duncan of Giles County was born c1761 and was about the same age
as Charles. His wife, Mary Kirk, was a daughter of Thomas Kirk and Margaret
Duncan. A descendant of William's is a Y-DNA match of the male descendants
of John Duncan and Dinah Bradford. Consider the following:
- A letter from Landon written to Alamander Duncan
- Alamander's bible says he was son of John and Dinah
- A letter says that (my) Charles was a cousin of Landon Duncan
- Landon's mother was a daughter of John and Dinah
- Landon's DNA does not match John's
- John and Dinah had a son named Charles
- The 1787 census calls my Charles "son of Charles."
- William Duncan's Y matches the Duncan/Bradford family
A partilineal descendant of Charles descendant should Y-test for
confirmation. But it is looking exceedingly good that Charles was a
grandson, likely through Charles, of John and Dinah.

I wrote the following for a Hogue family reunion in July 1989.
Born 10 January 1761 in Fauquier County, Virginia. His parents are
currently unknown; however, there were several families named Duncan in
Fauquier County in the late 18th century. As well, there were a number of
Duncans in Stokes County, North Carolina where he resided some years after
the Revolution. More significantly, there are Duncans found in his last
place of residence, Giles County, Virginia.
Of those families is a Rev. Landon Duncan. The Giles County Historical
Society sent me a copy of a biography of Landon written by Jack Winsor
Hanson. It states, "Landon Duncan was born in Fauquier County, Virginia ca.
1786. He was born into a large family of Duncans who lived in the county,
but removed thence to Stokes County, North Carolina, and passed his boyhood
there. He grew up under George Washington's presidency. About the close of
the 18th century, he moved from North Carolina to Virginia to what is now
This same biography states that Landon had a brother Rev. Charles Duncan;
however, we cannot be sure that he was the same Charles. We do know that
Landon performed the marriages for Charles'[s] children Thornton (1819) and
Margaret (1828) as well as for Charles'[s] grandchildren Judith Southern
(1825), Sally Southern (1828) and Alice Southern (1830). Undoubtedly,
Charles and Landon were related. Further study of Landon's life, who was a
prominent citizen of his day, might reveal more about Charles'[s]
Charles joined the fight against the British on 12 January 1777, serving as
a private in Daniel's Morgan Regiment. According to his pension records he
was at the battle of Branywine, 11 September 1777, at which Washington was
severely defeated by General Howe, although retarding Howe's advance on
Philadelphia. He was discharged at Fredericktown, Maryland on 12 January
On 27 July 1819 he and his brother-in-law, John Kirk, appeared in court to
present testimony regarding Charles'[s] service. It states, "he is in
reduced circumstances and stand in need of the assistance of his County for
Charles Duncan and Margaret Kirk were married in Fauquier County, Virginia
on 17 December 1786. Their first two children were born in Virginia. In 1791
their third child, Elizabeth, was born in North Carolina. In 1798 son
Braxton was born in Virginia, probably Giles County.
Charles Duncan died in Giles County, Virginia in 24 October 1838.

2. The only Leander Murphy I can find in census records for all of 1810 and
1820 is for Shelby county KY, p 216 (1810) and p 136 (1820). In 1820, the
eldest male is 45+. This would make him born prior to 1775. He is living
next to the John Murphy household, eldest male being 26-45.
3. Y-DNA test results from descendants of Landon Duncan's show that his
father was not the son of John and Dinah (Bradford), confirming the notion
that his mother, Chloe, was John's daughter. Landon may have acquired
Chloe's maiden name.
