Duncan Balfour b. Fall River, MA 1880

I'm looking for any information on the ancestry, siblings or other history around Duncan Balfour, who was born in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1880. He married Alvira Hathaway of that city some time before the birth of their first child in 1919.

In 1892, Duncan was 12 and, according to family stories, he lived next door to the Andrew Borden family, who lived at 92 Second Street. This is the family of the "Lizzie Borden Murder" fame. Duncan and his friends beleived that the police had arrived because "old man Borden" had reported them for stealing pears from his backyard trees.

Any information available on Duncan Balfour, his family, parents and ancestors will be greatly appreciated.

D. R. Rowe
