Tuesday, November 13, Maggie Dunlap, 61, died at the home of her sister Miss Emma Bauer at Beaver Brook. Maggie was the widow of the late Walter Dunlap. Her three sons: Charles and Harold of Eldred, and George of Middletown.
There was a thank-you card from the Dunlaps sent to Lon Austin in the Austin Collection. The Austin and Dunlap families had known each other at least as early as 1856. In a January 1857 letter Lon’s grandmother Fanny Knapp Austin wrote (from Halfeway Brook) about the marriage of Walter’s parents “Oliver Dunlap and Caty Devenport” on New Year’s Eve.
