E. A. DUNN, who resides on an excellent farm of eighty acres one-half mile south of Plattsville, O., in a desirable section of Green township, was born in Orange township, Shelby county, in 1858, and is a son of John and Susan (Razor) Dunn. John Dunn was born in Pennsylvania and came to Ohio when young and after living for some years in Montgomery county, came to Shelby and settled on a farm in Orange township, where he died in his sixty-fifth year. He married Susan Razor and they became parents of seven children.
E. A. Dunn obtained a district school education, often attending school under conditions that his children would deem exceedingly uncomfortable, entailing long walks in inclement weather and a schoolhouse devoid, in large measure, of any of the present-day comforts that are now considered necessities. He remained on the home farm until he was sixteen years old and then worked through the neighborhood for different farmers. He has been established on the present place for the past eleven years and here very successfully carries on general farming and stock raising.
Mr. Dunn married Miss Callie Simes and they have two daughters: Bertha and Ruth. In politics Mr. Dunn is a democrat. For a number of years he has been identified with the Odd Fellows, attending the lodge at Kirkwood.
