DEATH OF MRS. DUNLAP Mother of John H. Vannuys Passes Away at the Age of 92 Was Twenty Years a Resident of Allen County--A Woman of Forceful Character

Mrs. Elizabeth Dunlap died this morning at one o'clock at the home of her son, John Vannuys, at 506 East Madison after an illness of two weeks. Mrs. Dunlap was among the oldest citizens in Allen County and would have been 92 had she lived until January. Her death was due to a general breakdown of her system. Mrs. Dunlap has been a resident of the county about twenty years, coming from Franklin, Indiana and settled with her husband on a farm near Carlyle. Mr. Dunlap died shortly after they came here, and Mrs. Dunlap later moved to Iola. For the past ten years she has made her home with her son, Mr. Vannuys.

Mrs. Dunlap leaves, besides Mr. Vannuys, four children, Mrs. Catherine Overstreet, Anderson, Ind., Mrs. Ella LaGrange, Franklin, Ind., M. M. Dunlap of Anderson, Ind. and James Dunlap, Carlyle. She also leaves a brother, Isaac Johnson, of Pleasureville, Ky.

Mrs. Dunlap was a woman of great force. After the death of her husband nearly twenty years ago, she took charge of her farm, although past seventy years of age, and directed the work on it. She superintended the sale of the stock and grain in a most business-like manner,

A short funeral service occurred at the home of Mr. Vannuys this afternoon at three o'clock with Rev. Culberton, pastor of the Presbyterian church, of which Mrs. Dunlap was a member, in charge. The body will be shipped tonight to Franklin, Ind., the former home of the deceased, for burial. Mr. Vannuys will accompany the remains.

The banks of the city, in which Mr. Vannuys was long connected by reason of his being associated with the Northrup bank for thirty years, closed their doors this afternoon at three o'clock for the funeral.
