Duncan's very pregnant wife Jemina Fairchild accompanied her in-laws and brother to Norfolk County in Jun 1796 and may have been the first white woman to give birth in Walsingham Township and the first to die in Charlotteville Township. McCall-Fairchild Burying Grounds on one of the McCall homsteads is named for her. Duncan remained in New Jersey and brought supplies the following year. Duncan continued in New Jersey where he retained business interests, before moving to Norfolk in 1803. Duncan's commission to Captain of militia was signed in 1812 by General Isaac Brock. Duncan was thrice elected Norfolk's representative to the Provincial Legislature and died while attending those duties in York (Toronto).
