Thomas A. Duncan 
 was one of the first members of the Battery, enlisting April 4, 1862 at Chattanooga. In 1860, T.A. Duncan was a farmer in Jackson County, AL, and was married with several children.  He dislocated his collar bone Feb. 6, 1864, and appears to have been in charge of commissary with diarist Wm Brown.  He was among the artillerymen captured at Spanish Fort and imprisoned at Ship Island, MS.  Along with the Cook and Maunz families, Duncan moved to Independence County, Arkansas, in 1872.  He died 1921 July 8, and is buried at Sidon Cemetery, Sidon, White County, Arkansas.

T. A. Duncan enjoys the reputation   of being not only a substantial and progressive farmer, but an intelligent   and thoroughly posted man on all matters of public interest. In his dealings   with his fellow-men he has been upright and honorable, and his character will   stand any investigation which may be given it. His native birthplace was   Jackson County, Ala., where he first saw the light of day in 1830, he being   the eldest of eight children born to Jesse and Nancy E. (White) Duncan, who   were Tennesseeans, the father reared at Nashville and the mother near   Winchester. They were married in Tennessee and at an early day removed to   Alabama, and here Jesse Duncan followed the occupation of millwrighting and   erected one of the first mills in the county, also opening a large   plantation. He died in 1884 and his wife in 1883. Their children are; T. A.   (living in White County, Ark.), W. R. (who is married and resides in Texas),   James H. (married and living in Alabama), J. C. (married and living in   Kansas), Mary (Mrs. Selby, living near Iuka, Miss.) and Elizabeth (who also   resides at Iuka). T. A. Duncan’s early life was like the majority of farmers’   boys, and he assisted his father in clearing up the home farm and began that   work for himself at the age of nineteen in Alabama. He was married in Jackson   County, of that State, in January, 1849, to S. B. Pace, and upon the opening   of the war he enlisted from Jackson County in the Confederate army, for three   years, or during the war, becoming a member of Berry’s artillery. He was in   the battle of Peach Orchard Gap (Ga.), Jackson (Miss.), Resaca, and was taken   prisoner at Spanish Fort and sent to Ship Island and afterward to Vicksburg.   Upon being paroled in 1865 he returned to Jackson County, Ala., and in 1872   came to White County, Ark., and bought a timber tract of 180 acres which he   began clearing and upon which he erected good buildings. He has 110 acres of   his 400-acre farm under cultivation, all of which he has cleared since coming   to the county. He is a Democrat, has been magistrate nine years, and taken an   interest in the finance of the county, which was in bad shape at that time,   and succeeded in settling affairs. He is also a member of the school board,   and has always taken a deep interest in school matters. He and wife are the   parents of the following children: William F. (who is married and resides in   White County, Ark.), Cassie (who died in 1885 at the age of twenty-eight   years, was married to Mr. Holleman), B. E. (who is married and lives in the   county), J. J. (married and living in Cleburne County), Minta (who married A.   J. Holleman after the death of Cassie, and lives in White County, Ark.),   Nancy (Mrs. J. F. Lawrence), C. A. (who married F. W. Raney, and also lives   in White County), Mila and Jo (still with their parents). Mrs. Duncan’s   parents, William and Elizabeth (Wininger) Pace, were both members of old   Virginia families, and moved to Alabama about the year 1827, being among the   earliest to enter land in that State. The father died in 1870 and his wife   one year later.
