“My research indicates that the DUNCAN’s had farms in range 10 and range 9 of Frampton Township. This puts them in the area of St-Malachie that was known as the concession of Ballyporeen, which place name was derived from a location in County Tipperary, Northern Ireland. James DUNCAN served as a member of the school board.” - per Dennis McLane
