The lady in the pink and lavender flowered blouse behind the man in the blue and white shirt is my first cousin, Cynthia Elizabeth "Beth" Hall Duncan. The man in
the blue and white shirt is her husband, Bill Gene Duncan. Beth grew up on the corner of Castaway Island Road and Martin Dam Road in the house next to the Lake Martin Animal Clinic in the 1930's 40's and 50's. She was the daughter of Maynor and
Izella Ransom Hall. She went to college at Tennessee Temple in Chattanooga and met her husband there. He became a preacher and they traveled eventually to Borneo as missionaries. After they retired, he wanted to go back one more time to visit
his little church in Borneo.
He is shown here visiting the mother of one of his members in a hospital in Borneo who was terminal at the time.
Bill died of a heart attack shortly after this photo was taken while still in Borneo. Beth had a time getting his body back to Refuge Church in Red Hill for his funeral service due to the tremendous complications of transporting bodies from Borneo to
the United States.
They were tireless workers for the cause of Christ all around the Pacific Rim for much of their lives and their son is still teaching
in Southeast Asia.
