An archer, son of Duinhir, Lord of Morthond; died in the Battle of the Pelennor:
And so the companies came and were hailed and cheered and passed through the Gate, men of the Outlands marching to defend the City of Gondor in a dark hour.... From the uplands of Morthond, the great Blackroot Vale, tall Duinhir with his sons, Duilin and Derufin, and five hundred bowmen.

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 1, Minas Tirith

[Both] Duilin of Morthond and his brother were trampled to death when they assailed the mûmakil, leading their bowmen close to shoot at the eyes of the monsters.

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 6, The Battle of the Pelennor Fields

... nor Forlong the old to the flowering vales
ever, to Arnach, to his own country
returned in triumph; nor the tall bowmen,
Derufin and Duilin, to their dark waters,
meres of Morthond under mountain-shadows....

.... Long now they sleep
under grass in Gondor by the Great River.

From the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg
The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 6, The Battle of the Pelennor Fields
