The late Bishop William Wallace Duncan, of the M E Church, South, was a chaplain during the war. He was born in Mecklenburg County, Va, December 27, 1839; graduated from Wofford College, South Carolina, in 1858, and in 1859 entered the ministry of the Church, of which he was exemplary member throughout his remaining years. For ten years after the war he was a pastor, occupying some of the best pulpits of the Church. In 1875 he became financial agent of Wofford College, his Alma Mater, in which position he continued for ten years. He attended his first General Conference in Atlanta in 1878, and in 1886 he was the first chosen of four bishops elected in that General Conference. He was in active service, therefore, as bishop for twenty years. For the past few years he had been in failing health, but continued to serve to the extent of his ability to the end. He stood high in the councils of the Church and maintained the high prestige of his ancestry.
