John Duncalf came from Ontario Canada. The Duncalf family was also down at Nortonville CA where Black Diamond Mines also operated in the 1880's. Like, half the Duncalfs are in the bay area and the half up near Seattle - both Black Diamond operations. Anyways, Jack had a sister Alice Louise Duncalf, who married Frank Foskett. He also was a butcher. He had a meat market wagon the same as brother-in-law John Duncalf. Apparently, that's how they did it back then. The bread-man. The milk-man. The meat wagon - all delivered door to door. http://frankfoskett.blogspot.com/2007/12/frank-foskett-concord-meat-market-circa.html
