Dunn, Fred B. (1865? - 28 July 1899)

Fred B. Dunn, son of J. O. Dunn, of Chicago, Illinois, committed suicide, at the Tremont House, in Oshkosh, last Friday evening, by taking six grains of morphine, and left a letter saying he was weary of life. Fred was well known to many along the W.C. Lines, having traveled here for several years representing his father’s business. He always appeared a jolly, good natured fellow and the very last we should have selected as a suicide. There are many friends who will regret his rash act and sympathize with his bereaved wife and father.
