WM. DUNDOM, A PIONEER DEAD
CAME TO THIS SECTION NEARLY FORTY YEARS AGO-
WAS PROMINENT MAN IN THE MOORE SECTION-
William Dundom, a resident of the section for nearly 40 years died yesterday morning at the home of his daughter. Mrs. John B. Clark, nine miles southeast of Moore. Death resulted from the infirmities incident to old age. The sudden death of George M. Stone, an old and intimate friend, was a great shock to Mr. Dundom, and he seemed to decline from that time. The funeral will probably be held Thursday afternoon at Moore, though this cannot be determined until definite information is received from a daughter, Mrs. Fannie Barney of Los Angeles.
Mr. Dundom was a native of Amsterdam, Holland, and there he married on May 5, 1861. In 1868, Mr. and Mrs. Dundom and five children came to the United States, locating first in Michigan, then in Missouri, and coming to the Judith Basin in 1885. They located 12 miles north of Lewistown and resided there for many years, later going to the Moore district, where Mr. Dundom acquired large land holdings. He was also a large stockholder in the bank at Moore and had other interests in that section. His wife died some time ago. The body of the widely known pioneer will be at the Creel chapel until taken to Moore the morning of the day fixed for the funeral.
