|Birth: ||Dec. 7, 1877|
|Death: ||Nov. 12, 1974|
Husband of Josephine "Josie" Birt Dunn.
As view on Partridge Cemetery.
Homer A. Dunn was born and died in south-central Kansas, the son of Thomas Edilow Dunn and Josephine Powell-Dunn. Like his father (who died when Homer was young), he farmed the sandy, red Kansas soil for a living.
I knew him as a kind, very old man, with bristly whiskers on his face. He raised pigeons in his back yard and a LOT of chihuahua dogs at his home in Nickerson. His first wife (my biological great-grandmother) was Josie Birt, who died before I was born. His second wife, Susanna Avaline Holland-Briley-Dunn ("Grandma Avaline") was the great grandma that I knew.
He was almost 97 years old when he developed a condition that left sores on his legs, and required amputation. He died from complications from the surgery, but was laughing and joking up to the end. My father is named after him. I expect he'll reach the same ripe old age as grandfather did.
His children were Ora Alda Dunn and Edna Elizabeth Dunn-Belote.
