Birth: 1864

Death: 1901

Joseph Kettlestrings Dunlop of 429 North Kenilworth avenue, Oak Park, died after an operation at the Presbyterian Hospital yesterday at 2:30 p. m. He was the founder of the Dunlop Bros.' Bank on Marion street and North boulevard, and continued after the death of his brother Simpson on March 7, 1899.
For the last two years Mr. Dunlop conducted a real estate business at 204 Lake street. Upon the death of his father, Samuel Dunlop, in August, 1883, Mr. Dunlop and his brother Simpson put their share of their father's estate into the banking business in the fall of 1887.
Mr. Dunlop was born thirty-seven years ago last month at the residence at the corner of Lake street and Kenilworth avenue. His early and only education was given him at the Oak Park schools, and he remained a resident of Oak Park until his death. After leaving school, he and his brother Simpson opened the first bank in Oak Park, and the death of the latter two years ago induced him to leave this business, and he transferred the real estate department connected with the bank to 204 Lake street. The estate of the deceased is valued at nearly $500,000.
In 1890 Mr. Dunlop married Miss Ward Davis of Oak Park. His father, Samuel Dunlop, was a native of Belfast, Ireland, came to Chicago in 1852, and opened a printing office at 138 Lake street in partnership with Alfred L. Sewell.
--Chicago Tribune, 10 July 1901, p. 4
