      Obituary:
      HIGBEE NEWS (Randolph County, MO),
      23 Sep 1898--W. D. DUNCAN DEAD--While we are in the midst of life we are in the midst of death; even while the pulsating, throbbing blood of a vigorous life courses our being we are constantly surrounded and over-shadowed by the stern reality--death; which, to the Christian, is the gateway into the newer, fuller, nobler, and purer life. Death snatches its victims under every condition and at every period of life. (poem)
      --The strong, able-bodied man, our brother, W. G. Duncan, is with us no more. He was born Feb 16, 1859, and died September 17, 1898, making him 39 years, six months and one day old. He leaves four children, two girls and two boys, and a faithful, consecrated wife to mourn his loss. He became religious in 1884 and united with the Sharon congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church; two years ago he transferred his membership to the Higbee congregation where, until his death, he has lived an exemplary life....

      NOTE: The grave marker dates his death as 17 Aug 1898.
