A Biographical History of Darke County Ohio, published in
Chicago by the Lewis Publishing Company, 1900, pp. 689-690.

A. L. Dunn

Among the enterprising and energetic farmer of Greenville
township is the subject of this review, who on coming to Darke county
in 1866, purchased his present farm east of the city of Greenville. A
native of Maryland, he was born in Washington county, that state, in
1839, and in 1851, came to Xenia, Greene county, Ohio, with his
parents, S.R. and Letta (Horner) Dunn, also natives of Maryland.
Later they came to Darke county, where the mother died in 1880. The
father is still living and continues to make his home in this county.
In their family were six children, namely: A.L., Mrs. Joan Seburn,
Mrs. Aletta Wright, John, deceased; Samuel H. and Mrs. Katie Wise.

For eighteen years A.L. Dunn has now resided upon his present
farm of eighty acres in Greenville township, and he has made many
improvements upon the place. He devotes his time and attention to
general farming and stock raising, and is meeting with well deserved
success in his labors. He married miss Sarah Tingley, of Yellow
Springs, Ohio, and to them were born twelve children, but only seven
are now living, namely: Charles, Mrs. Etta Hinkle, Mrs. Katie
Puterbaugh, Mrs. Lodena Bowman, Gertie, Della and Harry. Those
deceased were: Luther, Thomas, Ella, Bertie and Walter. Mrs. Dunn is
a church member, and is a most estimable lady. By his ballot our
subject supports the men and measures of the Democratic party, and he
has been called upon to fill some of the township offices.
