Duncan Cemetery, October 2001


            Duncan Cemetery is a small family cemetery of the north side of Short Creek Road. The earliest burial probably was a child in the shell-covered grave on the eastern side. This is generally a nineteenth century grave decorating style, although it has been revived at the Qualls Cemetery on Brush Creek to the east. The shell covering on this grave does not appeared to be nineteenth century but it is not recent. Otherwise the earliest marked death dates are two 1931 burials. Extensive ground disturbances around the cemetery, probably related to clearance of the open area north of present burials, makes estimating unmarked burials impossible.

            David Donahue recorded Duncan Cemetery October 28, 2001 and checked and updated it September 26, 2004. Mary (Stewart) Bowen and Melissa (Snyder) Bowen recorded the cemetery in the early 1990s. Their record appears in Mary Bowen's Perry County, Tennessee Cemetery Records (Vol. I). This earlier record is referred to as Bowen in the notes below.
