Emmet Starr in "History of the Cherokee Indians" has Elizabeth Abercrombie, who married John Duncan, descended from the Abercrombys of Stirling County in Scotland (Castle Airethy). Starr is noted for adding a lot of anecdotal information to Guion Miller and Dawes Roll applications, some of which is wrong. From Guion Miller applications, it is clear that Elizabeth Abercrombie, a white woman, married John Duncan, a mixed-blood Cherokee said to be the son of Charles Gordon Duncan and Dorcas Benge nee Lightfoot. In 1818, Dorcas Duncan, Edmond Duncan, John Duncan, and Charles Gordon Duncan lived on Wauhough Creek, GA. Charles Duncan and Edward Duncan (I think it actually is Edmond Duncan) lived on the Etowah River, GA just before 1835. A son of John and Elizabeth Duncan was named John Thomason Duncan. Land records show that John Duncan and John Thomason were close neighvors. John Duncan and his brother removed to the Indian Territory. Charles Duncan left on 9 Feb 1834 and arrived on 20 May 1834 with his wife, Mahala, and 7 children. John Duncan left on 29 Sep 1833 with Elizabeth, 12 children, and 4 slaves. He arrived on 14 May 1834 with 9 children and 2 slaves. I am confident that Elizabeth and Mahala were daughters of a James Abercromby, but which one is a mystery.
