At that time he moved onto the Milo Ling farm where he lived until his death in 1929. Two children were born to Duncan and Elsie. They were Earl, born in 1919, and Florence born in 1921. Elsie, now Elsie Adams, lives in Red Oak. Florence, now Mrs. G. W. (Jim) Peterman, lives on a farm near Morton Mills. Earl married Florence Beggs in 1943 and they lived in Pilot Grove township for twenty years, seventeen of those years on the family farm five miles east of Elliott.
