Edmund DUNN ( -1929)

CAPT. EDMUND DUNN

   Captain Edmund Dunn, 88, Civil War veteran, and for years one of the leading business men of Connellsville, died about 8 o’clock Saturday evening at his home, 220 South Prospect street. Death was due to a heart attack, after a week’s illness. For years Captain Dunn was affiliated with William F. Kurtz post, G. A. R., and at the time of his death was post commander. In addition, he was also a staunch supporter of Company D, later the Howitzer company, Connellsville’s unit in the national guard. His death leaves seven members remaining in the G. A. R. post, five of whom live in that city. Captain Dunn was born in West Union, Washington county in August 1940, a son of Daniel and Sarah Baker Dunn. He was educated in the schools there and entered Waynesburg college. Before he could complete his course of study, the Civil War broke out and in 1862 the young man enlisted as a private in the 16th Pennsylvania Calvary. His bravery and ability soon won him promotion. When the war closed in 1865, he was Captain Dunn. One of his cherished experiences was he time that President Abraham Lincoln reviewed his regiment before Petersburg just before the war ended with Lee’s surrender. Returning from the army, the young soldier married Rhoda L. Yeagley, daughter of Henry and Phoebe Yeagley of North Union township. Mrs. Dunn died in 1922. They moved to Missouri for six years farmed at Warrenton. In 1873, they returned to Pennsylvania, locating in Connellsville, and founded the firm E. Dunn, in North Pittsburgh street. He conducted the business until 1914, when he and his son, Harry, who had been associated with him, abandoned the mercantile field. Captain Dunn was active in religious and civic life. He was a member of the Greenwood M. E. church of the Yough city. He was also president of the board of trustees of the Carnegie Free Library of Connellsville at the time of his death, of which he was a life member. A son, Harry, a daughter, Phoebe, both of Connellsville, and a granddaughter, Harriet Dunn, survive. Funeral services will take place at the home, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. Because of the age of the William F. Kurtz post members, no G A. R. services will be read at the funeral. An American Legion firing squad will take part. Officers of the Howitzer company announced that the members would meet at the Armory at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and form an escort of honor for the body. Burial will take place in Chestnut Hill cemetery beside the body of Mrs. Dunn.

John DUTILLA ( -1922)

TWO ARE KILLED IN ACCIDENTS IN COUNTY
Adelaide Man Drowned

Article begins and continues concerning other accidents.

Man Is Drowned

John Dutilla lost his life when he accidentally slipped off the bank of the Yough River at Adelaide yesterday afternoon. It is claimed that he had been wondering around for some time and that while no attention was paid to him he stepped into space and fell into the river. Reports say that several persons standing on the bank, after the man had fallen into the water, did not show any desire to assist a constable who was on the scene in rescuing the drowning man. The case was reported to Coroner S. H. Bauer and the State Police, both of whom have instituted investigations.

Margaret DUTTON ( -1853)

DIED

   In Uniontown, on the 2d inst., Mrs. MARGARET DUTTON, in the 28th year of her age. We have, in the death of Mrs. Dutton, another evidence of the triumph of Christianity over death. Though its dark cloud veiled her sun of life ere it was a full noon, yet she was fully prepared for the change. In the year 1843 she united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church in this place, and from that time until the hour of her death, remained a consistent member of its communion. Modest and retiring in her disposition, her religious experience seemed to partake of her natural temperament. A dying hour however proved that she had not lived nor believed in vain. When interrogated as to the future, with the full consciousness that she was dying, she testified that all was well, and expressed an assurance that when the earthly house of her tabernacle was dissolved, she would have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. As earth receded, heaven burst upon the enraptured vision, and scarcely had she bidden adieu to loved ones here, till she was received with welcome greeting to the general assembly and Church of the first born on high. Thus has she died to earth, to live the higher life of heaven, and now in that land “Where seraphs gather immortality.” She is reaping in rich fruition, the rewards of a life devoted to God here.    COM.
