James Ricketts Duncan gave land for the church and

cemetery and it began as Harmony Methodist Episcopal Church.

The first congregation worshiped under a brush arbor filled with

benches made from planks nailed to logs. Harmony is now

a Full Gospel Church and has just built a new sanctuary.

The first burial in the cemetery was that of Elizabeth Duncan,

wife of the founder, who died May 2, 1894.

[1] -Martha Duncan Allen's death certificate gives her DOB as Oct 17, 1862, and DOD as Jun 15, 1922 in Mecklenburg Co. She was the daughter of Andrew Duncan and Rebecca Ross.  The 1862 date may be correct as her father died Nov. 25, 1862 and she was listed as 8 years old on the 1870 Census.


[2] -Tuesday, November 22, 1904, THE MONROE JOURNAL (Union County, N.C.)

-A very sad death of one of the young men students of Wingate occurred Sunday night. It was that of Mr. Vann ALLEN of STEELE’S Mills. Last Wednesday night he was taken violently ill, apparently with appendicitis. He was carried to St. Peter’s in Charlotte and died Sunday night. He was a bright young man and greatly liked by his fellow students.
