    Place of death of Duncan Lewis Terry is uncertain.  In 1880 the familyis found in Fannin County, in 1900 widow Tabitha is found with sonJoseph William in Burnet County.

    There is a family tradition right out of the wild west about the deathof Duncan Lewis, that some of us are trying to find documentationabout.  The information is related by Jacque Watkins, a granddaughterof Duncan:
    "I am looking for a story (newspaper, etc.) about Duncan Lewis Terryhaving been killed by stabbing in a quarrel over a horse deal. That isthe family lore that I have to date as to his death. I don't knowwhere it happened. Supposedly in Oklahoma or Texas or New Mexico.Maybe at Milano, Milam County [Texas], where Thomas Lewis' store was(I have heard that it may have happened at the store). He was a cattledriver supposedly and this is how he supported his family."
    --  personal email correspondence with Orville Boyd Jenkins, September2008

    This is similar to some of the tales of the Terrys and relatedJenkinses in Indian Territory/Oklahoma, not to mention some of myJackson and Green relatives in Cherokee and Choctaw Nation. -- OBJ
