MR. ALEXANDER C. DUNN
The Danville Messenger contains the following account of the death of Mr. Alexander C. Dunn, which occured in Danville on January 2d. Mr. Dunn was born in and was long a resident of Lancaster, and is well known to our older citizens, he being a merchant, and both he and his estimable family greatly loved and respected by our people: - "After an illness confined him to his bed for more than a year, Mr. Alex C. Dunn died, at his residence, on Lexington street, at eight o'clock, Tuesday evening. Mr. Dunn has been at death's door for some time, but his wonderful vitality enabled him to cling to life much longer than even his physician could hope for. He was in his eighty-second year. Mr. Dunn was born and spent most of his life in Lancaster, where, as a citizen and leading merchant, he won the respect of every one. He moved from Lancaster to Richmond, coming from the latter city to Danville. He was considered one of the best dry goods men in the state in his day, and has sold thousands of dollars worth of goods in the three counties in which he resided. He was a faithful member of the Baptist church and devoted to every thing pertaining to advancement of the Masters cause. He is survived by his faithful wife, and two children, Mrs. W. B. McMurray, of Indianapolis, and Mrs. Harry Simms, of Danville. Funeral services were conducted at the residence, yesterday afternoon, by Dr. Cecil V. Cook the interment taking place at Bellevue Cemetery."
