Duncan McCOLL

(1881 - 1938)
Father*Duncan McCOLL b. 1848, d. 1889
Mother*Isabella McCOLL b. c 1848, d. 1924
Duncan McCOLL was born in New Zealand in 1881.1,2

He served in WWI in the Rifle Brigade of the 1st NZEF (#51857), H Co reinforcements, embarking on 12 June 1917.
He is known to have visited the FERGUSON family in Glasgow sometime during or just after the war, as they remember his NZ Army uniform, but his original trade was as a carpenter.3

Duncan died on 10 November 1938 at 15 Exeter St in Christchurch, Canterbury.1,4

He had been visited in the late 1930's by Alexander FERGUSON (1st cousin, once removed) at Exeter St where he was living virtually as a rag-and-bone man; his mind was wandering - he later probably commited suicide by gassing. The Public Trustee made little attempt to uncover his Scottish cousins until prompted by Alexander, who discovered letters home to Scotland in the abandoned house after his death. Another family branch (possibly the Fosters of Wanganui) were attempting to claim all of his limited estate until then.5 He was buried on 12 November 1938 at the Bromley Cemetery in Christchurch.6,7
