     Hamilton J. Duncan, of the town of Broome, familiarly known as "Done Duncan", passed away at the home of his son, George B. Duncan, of this village, Friday January 16th, after an illness of four weeks. Previous to his last illness he had not been well for some time. He and his wife were passing the winter with their son.

For many years he was the purchasing agent for a Boston wool firm, handling some years the most of the wool grown in this section.
     Mr. Duncan was a man of strict integrity and had the good opinion of all who knew him. The large attendance of neighbors and friends at the funeral here Monday, in the Methodist church, attested to the high esteem in which he was held at home.
     Mr. Duncan is survived by his wife and son and one sister, Mrs. Charles Felter, of Breakabeen, besides a large circle of relatives. Rev. Martin of the Presbyterian church of Breakabeen preached the funeral sermon, assisted by Rev. James M. Cass. Interment in the Keyserkill Cemetery.
