BLOCK, BLOCKS, DUNCAN, JUDEN, JUDENS posted by Carolyn Castor on Thursday, September 18, 1997

One of my elusive ancestors may have been living in Missouri in 1840. His name was William C. DUNCAN and he was married to a woman named Abby. Their daughter, Sarah Jane, was married to my Henry A. BLOCK of Cape Girardeau. My first record of William C. DUNCAN is in the 1850 census in New Orleans with his wife and two year old daughter. They are living in a home with Cape Girardeau BLOCKS and JUDENS (JUDEN) who had also moved to New Orleans. Do you have any marriage records for a William C. DUNCAN around 1840 or census records? I don't even know what Missouri county this William lived in. Don't be confused by a later marriage entry: William C. DUNCAN, Jr. married one of Zalma BLOCK'S daughters in Cape Girardeau. Thanks, Carolyn Castor
