- William Erastus Duncan (1825-1912) attended Richmond College and received degrees from Columbian College in Washington D.C. and from the University of Virginia. A school teacher, he settled in Franklin County, where he established a school called Halesford Academy. In 1860, he was elected president of Alleghany College in Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia, but when the Civil War began, Duncan entered the military. Receiving a rank of captain, Duncan served in the Quartermaster's Department gathering supplies for the Confederate Army in the counties of southwestern Virginia. After the Civil War, Duncan attempted farming some of his father-in-law's land in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Unsuccessful, he returned to Franklin County and established the Halesford Classical and Mathematical School. He also served as the superintendent for Franklin County public schools from 1876 to 1881 and 1886 to 1889. He married Sallie Elizabeth Holland (1835-1920) of Franklin County, Virginia, 22 February 1853, and they had eight children.
