Counties of White and Pulaski, Indiana, 1883

Union Township, White County, Indiana

       John Dunlap is a native of the Highlands of Scotland, born in Argyllshire December 8, 1808. He was reared to manhood in his native country, received only an ordinary schooling, and the fall of 1834 shipped on board the brig "Nora" bound from Grennock to New York, arriving at the destined port after a voyage of six weeks and three days. On this same vessel David Breckenridge and family took passage, and, on their arrival in this country, Mr. Dunlap and the Breckenridge family found homes in Washington County, Ohio, where they engaged in farming. It was here on the 20th of November, 1835, that Mr. Dunlap married Charlotte Breckenridge, who was born February 12, 1814, in Argyllshire, Scotland. In 1851, Mr. Dunlap and wife moved from Washington County, Ohio, to Tippecanoe County, Ind., remaining there only a few months. The fall of 1851, he came to White County and purchased 300 acres of new land in Union Township, and the succeeding spring moved his family to this place, erected a house and has lived here ever since. He and wife have had twelve children born to them, only the following named are yet living - Charlotte (Mrs. J. P. Henderson), Mary (Mrs. George Cowger), Andrew, Martha, and Margaret (Mrs. Charles Page). Mr. and Mrs. Dunlap have been hard working and industrious people, have passed through many of the inconveniences of pioneer life, and by industry and economy have secured a good home to shelter them in their old age. Mr. Dunlap, although passed threescore and ten years, is yet hale and hearty, and is one of the country's best citizens. He is a Democrat in politics, has served Union Township five years as Trustee, and he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.
