    • 8 September, 1905
      “Early Callaway History – Old Settlements and Settlers,” by William Nash Moore
      Mokane (Missouri) Herald-Post


      Joseph Duncan.
      Joseph C. Duncan came from Buckingham county, Virginia, and, after stopping about a year in Kentucky, arrived in Callaway county, Missouri, and located near Readsville in 1830. He and Jarrod May entered eighty acres of land each, being the first land entered in that neighborhood. Joseph C. Duncan had six sons: Frederick, Onslow, Joe, who died young, Jerome, Ned and Merritt, Frederick moved to the state of Oregon just before the close of the war. The father and all his living sons, except Frederick, were known to be in sympathy with the South. Having lived in that part of the country, they loved it and its institutions. Frederick claimed to be in sympathy with the North, and enlisted in the militia, which act his Southern-sympathizing neighbors disapproved as well as all his father’s family. This bitterness continued to exist until after the close of the war, and it may be that it exists to a small extent up to the present time. It was known by very few of Frederick’s friends at the time, that he did this in order to promote peace among neighbors. He believed by doing as he did, he could benefit all his neighbors than by any other he could pursue. It was always known in his neighborhood a short time before when the militia would pay that part of the county a visit, and on such occasions, Frederick always accompanied them. nor was there any murdering or robbing committed on these scouts when Frederick was with them. There were some of the Southern people who still retain reason. Frederick knew this. He would approach some of these, and tell them how suicidal it was to contend without arms with well-armed men and that would surely bring trouble upon themselves, their families and their friends. He also used his influence with the opposite party, trying to persuade them to desist from all lawlessness and cruelties, that it was not the business of soldiers to make war on unarmed men, who were remaining at home and attending to their private affairs, neither was it their business to make war on defenseless women and children. From some cause, probably at his own request, he was discharged from the militia, and soon after moved to the state of Oregon, where he died a short time after. This exoneration of Fred Duncan is written the more cheerfully as the writer had some acquaintance with him both before and during the war, and he always seemed to be a good sort of a man.
      The father, Joseph C. Duncan died soon after the close of the war. Merritt was a lawyer and resided in Mexico, MO. He also preached occasionally. Onslow went to Texas and it is believed he died there. Jerome was a house carpenter. He resided in Audrain county, Mo., and died there some years ago. Ned is a physician, and is in Monroe county, Mo. There were two daughters born to Joseph C. Duncan and wife. The elder married Isham McMahan, and a daughter of this couple became the wife of Capt. William M. Scholl. The younger of the daughters of Joseph C. Duncan married Marshall S. Coats. Nearly all the Duncan family are dead, and none of those living reside in this county….
      …Elder William Coats was one among the earliest settlers on the prairie to which he gave his name. He preached I at many places throughout the county in the early 20’s. There were several other settlers in this part of the county in early times, of whom very little is known. There were Jackson Petty, Marshal S. Coats, the McCalls, Berrys and several others. Michael Klein was born in Germany near the river Rhine, and he married a woman who was born on the opposite side of the river in French territory. He came to St. Louis, Mo. when quite a young man where he remained about two years and thence to Portland, Mo., where he established a wagon factory, and after remaining in this business for many years, he added to it furniture and hardware. He had the misfortune a few years ago of being burned out, both buildings and stock were destroyed. He then purchased another building and put in a small stock of hardware, and is in that business at the present time. He is now past his three-score and ten years, and is some what broken in health and strength.
