The Ringgold Record, 1887

OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN DUNLAP.

Died, March 26th, 1887, at the Mt. Pleasant Asylum, Mrs. Margaret (BUCK) DUNLAP, aged fifty-six years. The deceased was born in County Antrim in Ireland, and descended from a good Scotch-Irish ancestry. She came to the city of Troy, N.Y. when seventeen years of age, and for many years enjoyed the ministry of the Rev. Peter BULLIONS, D.D., noted in after days as one of the greatest scholars of the age, and the author of BULLIONS's series of grammars. She could relate many incidents about the great man, who was the first moderator of the U. P. General Assembly in 1859.

She married John DUNLAP Oct. 20th, 1851, and moved from Troy, N.Y., to Richland county, Ohio, in the year 1852. In 1855 they moved again to Keokuk county, Iowa, and in 1858 to Ringgold county. She united with the church at the age of nineteen, and was always remarkable for her devotion to, and her interest in the U. P. church, of which she was a pioneer in Ringgold county. In self denial and faith she helped to lay the foundations of the work and sowed the seed, while her more joyful successors were only the reapers. Her remains were brought home and buried in the Eugene cemetery, the Rev. Wm. BROWN conducting the service. In her last and sad days, she had many friends who thoughtfully looked after her comfort, and they have the comfort of knowing that she was a good woman, and full of faith.

NOTE: Margaret (BUCK) and John DUNLAP were the parents of three children, Robert DUNLAP, William DUNLAP, and Mrs. T. A. STEPHENSON. Margaret (BUCK) and John DUNLAP were interred at Eugene Cemetery, Ringgold County, Iowa.
