My favorite ancestor is John Duncan, Jr. Known to all as "little Duncan." He lived a most interesting life, including being carried away by the British to Canada during the Revolutionary War. Escaping, he made his way from Canada all the way down through the United states to south west Virginia where his family rejoined him a couple of years later after the war ended.
