  • Notes 
    • Occupation: Farmer

      James Duncan was born February 26, 1857 in Fillmore, Millard County, Utah. He was the first son and second child of nine children born to James Duncan Sr. and Janette Snedden.

      James and his wife, Anna Judith “Udy” Beckstrand, were childhood friends. They were married May 7, 1879 at St George, Washington County, Utah.

      He had dark hair, was of medium height and slender built. He was a freighter by occupation as well as a farmer. He hauled dried fruit, gooseberries and other local produce to San Francisco to sell to the miners.

      He and Judith lived across the street from his brother, Dave. They often freighted together.
      James was active in the Meadow Ward, teaching mutual and exercising his priesthood by baptizing and confirming the youth of Meadow.

      James was called on a mission in 1883 to the Southern States Mission. (Tennessee, Kentucky and princi¬pally, Georgia.) His diary is preserved by Gail Duncan, a grandson. Elaine Gordon, a grandaughter has a copy.[Duncan, James Jr. Book B 191883, 12 Meadow Creek Millard County, Utah- Southern States].

      His wife, Anna Judith and three little children remained in Meadow Creek. Anna Jennette was eight years old, Elmer was 4, and James Alonzo was 2. After he returned, four more children were born: Flora, Lois, Leah and Naomi.

      Leah remembers what a good father he was to all his children. "He always had a peppermint in his pocket for them and he let them take eggs to Charley Swallow's store to exchange for large chocolate candies."

      James passed away at the young age of 48 years from a tragic freighting accident
