biography from Portrait & Biographical Album of Mahaska Co., Iowa, 1887

GEORGE N. DUNCAN, deceased, one of the pioneers of Oskaloosa, was born in Barnard, Vt ,in April, 1815. When a young man he came West and settled in Van Buren County, Iowa, where he became acquainted with Hannah Peck, who was born in Ohio, Aug. 18, 1823, and to whom he was married in Van Buren County in 1840. Her parents were pioneers in this new country, and it will be noticed that our subject was married in this State at a very early time in its history. In 1850 they moved to Oskaloosa, where Mr. Duncan died the following year. He was a man highly respected by all, and the people came from far and near to attend the last sad rites over that which was mortal of the old pioneer. Mr. and Mrs. Duncan were the parents of five children, only one of whom is living, Thomas J., at Leadville, Col. In 1856 Mrs. Duncan married Perry Windsor, who died within a year of their marriage. Mrs. Windsor is the oldest but one of any settler in this county, having been identified with the county for forty-three years.
