DEATH OF DR. JOHN M. DUNLAP
One of the County's Most Prominent Citizens Suddenly Expires from Apoplexy A Long and Honored Career.
Dr. John M. Dunlap, one of the leading citizens of Manheim, as indeed he was of the entire County, died very suddenly on Monday morning at 7:45 at his home in Manheim from apoplexy. His death will not only be a source of regret to a large circle of warm friends, but it will be a great loss to the town, where he made his home for so many years.
That morning about seven o'clock he went to the pump in his yard, and while there was stricken with apoplexy. His son, Charles, chanced to be near by and he caught his father in his arms as he was falling and carried him into the house, where death followed in fifteen minutes. The members of his family were terribly shocked by the sudden affliction which had come upon them and the citizens of the borough were also deeply affected by the sad event. Dr. Dunlap was born in Leacock township on August 16, 1822, and was graduated from the Jefferson Medical College in 1845. He immediately settled in Manheim, where he soon established a large practice. As years passed he became one of the towns most prominent citizens, being always foremost in any plans for its development. He was a man of strong personality, and had the rare faculty of attaching people to him by the strongest bonds of friendship. For many years he was prominent in Republican politics, and was a member of the State Senate in 1864, 65 and 66. He served as Burgess of Manheim, was a member of the School Board, and was In the Borough Council for some years. The Doctor was one of the originators of the Manheim National Bank, of which he was a Director. He belonged to the Episcopal Church, as well as to Lodge No. 43. F. and A. M., and Lancaster Commandery Knights Templar, of this city, and Selah Lodge. No. 657, I. O. O., of Manheim, being the oldest Past Grand in the Borough.
The deceased is survived by his wife and two sons. Dr. J. Francis Dunlap and Charles Dunlap, both of Manheim, and a grandchild. Miss Sue Dunlap. The funeral will be held on Thursday morning at ten o'clock, from' the Doctor's late residence, interment being made at Fairview Cemetery, north of Manheim.
