Dunn, James A. (28 JAN 1847 - 24 Jul 1912)

James Albert Dunn was born Jan. 28, 1847 in the state of New York, a son of Geo. And Anastacha Dunn. His early life was passed at his birthplace and in Ontario, Canada, where his parents moved when he was a small boy.

Deceased was married in Marmora, Canada Feb. 1st, 1871 and three years later moved to Seymour, Wis., wher the family resided until 34 years ago, when they came to Clark County, Wis. to reside, having made their home on the farm south of town the past thirteen years.

Mr. Dunn was always a hard, conscientious laboring man, trying to do his duty and provide for his house hold.

He was a man of excellent habits, fine moral character, and sturdy constitution, and he continued to be active in his accustomed pursuits still long past the age which men ordinarily drop out of the ranks of the workers. To this end there is no doubt that sunshiny disposition largely contributed.

Death occurred last Wednesday afternoon July 24th, 1912, from an accident which happened to him while harvesting his hay crop. A load was being unloaded on the barn floor. As Mr. Dunn was about to trip the hay fork the rope broke, letting him fall to the floor. The sudden shock caused a reaction of his heart, which resulted in death shortly after.

Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian Church Monday afternoon, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating.

Deceased leaves one brother, Ed Dun of Buffalo, Minn., and three half-brothers in Canada. Five daughters and two sons, Mrs. Maggie Meed, Mrs. Sam Howden of Beech, N.D., Mrs. Marian Ware, Albert Dunn of Poplar, Mo., and Mrs. Perry Palmer and Sadie Dunn of Greenwood, and a wife to mourn his sudden departure.
