Obituary of FRANCIS MARION DUNN
DEATH OF F. M. DUNN.

F. M. Dunn died at 11:22 o'clock a.m. on last Saturday, May 7, 1921, at the home of his son, H. H. Dunn, 16 miles south and 2 miles east of this city. Several years ago Mr. Dunn suffered an attack of asthma, and about a year ago Bright's disease set in. He suffered greatly, but bore his affliction with remarkable patience. For three months before his death he was unable to lie down, and thus being compelled to sit in a chair all the time he became extremely weary. To him death came as a welcome release from his long suffering.

Funeral services were conducted from the home on Sunday and interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery. Rev. J. T. Wheeler of the First Christian church of this city had charge of the services.

Francis Marion Dunn was born in Elizabeth, Ky., on May 10, 1847. His age at the time of death was, therefore, only three days short if 74 years. When but 6 years of age, young Dunn moved with his parents to Indiana. At the age of 24, in Greensburg, in Floyd-co., Indiana, he was united in marriage with Miss Emeline Emmonds. To this union eleven children were born - eight boys and three girls, all of whom yet survive. The wife died about 9 years ago, and soon thereafter Mr. Dunn moved to Kansas and made his home with his son, H. H., who then lived at Norwich. In April 1916, he came to this county and continued, for the greater part of the time at least, to make his home with his son, H. H., at whose home he died.

Mr. Dunn was one of the best citizens of the community in which he lived. As a husband, father and citizen he never failed to measure up to the best standards. He was always found allied with every movement having for its purpose the betterment of the community and the welfare and happiness of his associates. Mr. Dunn was a member of the Christian church at the time of this death.
