Ref: 29 May 1919, Wapello Tribune, Wapello, IA -- S. V. Dunham, a prominent farmer residing northwest of Wapello, passed away at his home last Thursday afternoon after a brief illness. He was taken ill suddenly with appendicitis and on Sunday evening Dr. Tombaugh was called and performed an operation but the entire system was poisoned from the dread malady and in spite of the efforts of the physician and friends, death was the result.

S. Vene Dunham was born on the Dunham homestead west of Wapello on 27 March 1876 and died 22 May 1919 at the age of 43-1-25.

He was married on 6 Nov. 1900 to Martha Brown of Columbus, Ohio and to the union were born Frances V. Dunham, S. Vene Dunham and Edwin Ansel Dunham who with the Mother survives.

Vene Dunham was one of the most prominent and successful stock raisers in this locality, hence was known by many and held in high esteem by all. He lived all his life in Iowa except eight years in Colorado. His life was such that his memory is cherished by all who knew him.

Besides the wife and children the deceased is survived by five brothers and one sister, Will of Grand Island, NE; Ed of Monte Vista, CO; Roy of Crofton, NE, Harry and Fred of Wapello, and Nellie, wife of Frank Colburn of Mt. Harris, CO.

Funeral services were held from the home Monday at 11 a.m. conducted by Rev. F. H. Austermann. The large crowd in attendance and the beautiful floral offering testified to the esteem which deceased was held in this vicinity. Internment was made in the Wapello cemetery.
