OBITUARY ~ HUGH W. DUNLAP
The friends in this community were surprised by the sad news of the death of Mr. Dunlap which occurred at his home early Monday morning one mile north of Tingley, Iowa. He had not been in good health for some years but was not
considered to be in immediate danger. Indeed, Sabbath was quiet, restful day for him but at midnight the friends noticed a marked change in his condition and in a few minutes the great change came and he was not found unprepared. "Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace." Mr. Dunlap was a quiet man, a good citizen and a steadfast Christian. He enjoyed to a singular degree the confidence and respect of those who knew him. Many will regret what seems to be an untimely closing of his noble career. He was just past 62 years old. He was born near Vincent, Ohio, April 7, 1854, and came to Lenox, Taylor county, Iowa, in 1876, where he lived until March 1905 when he moved with his family to Tingley, Iowa, which was his home at the time of his death.
December 22, 1886, Mr. Dunlap married Miss Maggie A. Jones of Lenox, who died Nov. 3, 1898. He was married the second time to Miss Belle Smith, the youngest daughter of Dr. C. C. Smith for many years a resident of Lenox. He leaves one son, Edward, who is married and lives west of Tingley. Mrs Dunlap is left alone, her mother being with her just for the present. Her plans for the future are unsettled. The friends in this community would be glad to welcome her back to the home of her earlier years in Lenox,
Rev. A. L. Davidson, former pastor of the family, conducted the funeral of Mr. Dunlap at the residence on Tuesday afternoon. The burial was in the Tingley cemetery near the grave of Dr. Smith. The text, "As for me I shall behold His face in righteousness. I shall be satisfied when I awake in His likeness."
