James E. Dunlap


Hazel Green Twp.


     James E. Dunlap owns in connection with his brother and sister a fine tract of two hundred and eighty acres of land in Hazel Green township, and devotes his time to its operation. He was born in that township, June 4, 1871, a son of James B. and Clarissa M. (Comstock) Dunlap, natives of Ireland and New York respectively. The father passed away in February, 1903, but the mother survives and makes her home in Hopkinton.
     James E. Dunlap was given an excellent education and after completing the course of the local public schools he attended Western College at Toledo, Iowa. Since leaving school he has concentrated his energies upon agricultural pursuits, as he manages and operates two hundred and eighty acres of land on section 3, Hazel Green township, belonging jointly to himself, his brother and sister. He understands well the methods best adapted to the cultivation of Iowa soil and, as he is a man of great energy, his yield of grain per acre is always high and his stock is invariably of a good grade.
    On the 11th of December, 1912, Mr. Dunlap was united in marriage to Miss Clara G. Keith, a daughter of George W. Keith, and to this union has been born a daughter, Rosalind.
     Mr. Dunlap supports the republican party at the polls and takes a lively interest in all matters concerning the public welfare. He is a man of high standards of conduct and his life is in all respects upright and honorable, winning for him the sincere esteem of all who know him.
