The Duncan Family Connects With Grady Baggett
Brantly Duncan is as far back as the family has gone with the Duncan Family. There has been rumors by older people of the family that there were three brothers who came to Georgia in the nineteenth century. No one has yet to find either. One may have been George and another Elbert Duncan.
Brantly Duncan served in the Confederate Army on 6 June 1864. Personnel Record: Record number 321 composed of five documents. Recorded on Document number 5. He died of Febris Typhordas. Tombstone information: B. Duncan, County K, 60 GA. C.S.A., Stonewall Confederate Cemetery, Lagrange, Troupe County, GA. Main Residence: Walnut Grove area, 88 Division, Walton County, GA. He entered the Military 22 September 1863 as Private, Company K, 66th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Army of TN, C.S.A. He was enlisted by Captain L. T. Langston for the duration of the war. Brantly’s first appearance in public records was when he bought his marriage license to marry Matilda Head on 22 March 1845 in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
There are records in 1849 in Bumcomb District where Brantly Duncan paid one poll tax of 39 cents. Again in 1850, 1851, 1852, 1853, 1859, 1860, 1861, 1862. The above was taken from the 1862 Walton County, GA tax digest of six children living between the ages of 6-18 year, and this fits Brantly’s six oldest children (ages 6-15). The other two children are less than 6 years old in 1862 (ages 2 and 5). Following this assumption then Brantly and Matilda most likely had no additional children after William in 1860 or any that lived there in 1862.
If Brantly stayed in Gwinnett County, GA until moving into Walton County, GA by September 1850, then his first two children (Martha and Margarett) would have been born in Gwinnett County. His third child, Georga W. Duncan, at the time of the 1850 census (4 October 1850) is listed as 1 ½ months old, thus making him being born in September 1850, and the first child was born in Walton County, GA. Brantly does not appear on the Walton Couny, GA tax digest between 1854-1859 and 1861. He had moved out of Walton County and moved to Jackson County, which is northeast of Walton County, GA.
Brantly Duncan was born in 1821 in South Carolina, died in Cannon Hospital on 6 June 1864 in LaGrange, Troup County, GA. He married [first] 23 March 1845 Matilda Head. She was born ? She died in Georgia. Brantly and Matilta were married in Gwinnett County, GA. They had eight children:
E. Duncan, born 1847 in Gwinnett, married 17 December 1871 in Gwinnett
County A. J. Brewer.
2: Margarett Duncan, born 1848 in Gwinnett County
3: George W. Duncan, born September 1850 in Walton, County, GA
4: Josephine Duncan, born 1853, married 26 July 1887 in Gwinnett County, GA W. A. Brassell.

Her parents were William Dobbins, born 1790 and Elizabeth Jeffries, born 1825. Lucy's family lived in the New Georgia Community in Paulding County, GA.
Senoia Duncan is a grandson of Brantly Duncan and son of Levi Brantly Duncan. His family’s story is that Levi Brantly Duncan and his siblings were split apart during the Civil War, and this is supported by the information gathered so far. As an adult, Levi stated that he did not know where his siblings were.
Levi Brantly Duncan, son of Brantly Duncan, was born in Covington, Newton County, GA. The Editor of “The Carroll Free Press,” Carrollton, GA of the 15th of November 1934 stated that Levi was born in Newton County, 23 July 1854, son of Brantly Duncan.

Grady Baggett and Mollie Duncan were married 20 August 1916. Primitive Baptist Minister, W. J. Cheek, performed the Marriage Ceremony. They settled in the Hay Community at Hay, GA. Mollie’s parents lived in what was then the Embry Community. Embry’s Store served as Post Office in that community. There was also a Post Office at Hay, GA located in the General Merchandise Store building at Joseph Baggett’s Home Place. Mollie and Grady Baggett lived not far from the Post Office operated by Postmaster, Joseph Baggett, at his Home Place.
Levi Duncan and Lucy Ann Dobbins, parents of Mollie Mae Baggett, lived across the road from the Union Primitive Baptist Church and Cemetery for many years. They were both members of Union Primitive Baptist Church. Steve Baggett and Ellen Little, Grady Baggett’s parents, were also members of Union Baptist Church. Grady and Mollie both joined Union Primitive Baptist Church before they were married in 1916 and were baptized by a Primitive Baptist Minister of that Church.
Lucy Ann Duncan died while her and her husband Levi were living in the Embry Community, now Union Community. William Dobbins and Elizabeth Jeffries were Lucy Ann Dobbin’s parents. They lived in the New Georgia Community about four miles from Union Baptist Church. The family of Levi and Lucy Duncan is buried at Union Cemetery, including their son George, daughters, Mollie, Savanna, and Ellen Duncan. George, Savanna, and Ellen Duncan were never married. Mollie is buried in a tomb at the East End of her parent’s tomb. Levi, Lucy, George, Savanna, and Ellen Duncan are all buried in the same lot.
Mollie died with pneumonia on 9 January 1929 and Grady was left with a son, Amos Baggett, ten years old and an infant, Maury Baggett, only seven months old. Grady also had pneumonia at the time, and he was not able to go to his wife Mollie Baggett’s funeral. Mollie’s brother Sonoia Duncan and his wife kept the infant Maury Baggett for about a year after Mollie died. Grady married a Williams and they later had three daughters. Shortly after Grady Baggett married Della Williams, he brought his one and one-half year old son Maury Baggett home. In about 1930, after Mollie’s death with pneumonia, Levi Duncan and his daughter Ellen moved from the Union Community to Bowdon Junction, GA. Levi Duncan’s wife Lucy had died, along with his son George and daughter Savanna. Levi Duncan was left alone with his daughter Ellen.
Grady Baggett owned a sawmill at the time, and he sawed the timber into lumber for Levi Duncan and his daughter Ellen to build a house. They built near Levi Duncan’s son Senoia Duncan. His home was at Bowdon Junction, GA. Bowdon Junction is near Carrollton, GA. Grady Baggett’s son Amos hauled the lumber from the sawmill that was used to build the new house for his Grandfather Levi Duncan and his Aunt Ellen at Bowdon Junction, GA.
Mollie and Grady Baggett were very prosperous in their young life. They owned several hunderd acres of land, along with their new home built in 1928. They had laying hens, and Grady Baggett hauled the eggs about once a week to Villa Rica, GA to be shipped by rail to Atlanta, GA. They owned a General Merchandise Store on their farm. They had just moved into the new house in the fall before Mollie died in January of the next year. The house is still standing. Grady Baggett rebuilt the house by for his wife to live in, since he knew that death was shortly upon him in 1958. He died in February of 1959. It must have been shortly after Mollie’s death that Grady Baggett owned and operated the sawmill.
Mae Duncan, youngest child of Levi Duncan and Lucy Ann Dobbins, and James
Grady Baggett, son of Stephen Zachariah Baggett and Ellen Elgyrine Little,
had two children living
