Hi,
I was just doing some research into my own family tree when I came across this posting! I too am related to the Duncan's who are buried at Malin Presbyterian Church! My grandfather is Cecil Duncan, who I think was the grandson of John Duncan (who died 1922).
I don't know if this posting is still active, but if so, please get in touch.
Kind regards,
Dave
