Biography of Dr. Samuel Duncan
Sagadahoc County, Maine Biographies





Samuel Duncan, physician, was a descendant of the old Duncan family of Scotland, several families of whom emigrated to this country and settled in Massachusetts in the early part of the eighteenth century. In about 1775 Samuel moved to this section of the state, purchased a farm in what is now called "Harding," on the New Meadows River, and erected thereon a large, two story house, which is still standing, in a good state of repair, and until recently occupied by the family of Chapin Weston. Doctor Duncan had an extensive practice and had been called "Old Doctor Duncan" for some years, although he was but thirty nine years of age at the time of his death, which occurred June 30, 1784. He kept his hair clipped and wore a white wig, as was the custom, which, no doubt, contributed to his venerable appearance. He was buried in the old cemetery, near Witch Spring, in West Bath. His family consisted of one son and two daughters: Samuel Eaton, Hannah, Lydia.
