  MRS. SUSANNAH R. DUNN, widow of the late William Dunn residing on section 33, Green township, on the well-improved farm of 72 acres, is one of the most highly esteemed ladies of this section.  Mr. Dunn was born at Franklin Square, Columbiana County, Ohio, Sept. 25, 1841, and is a daughter of Thomas and Christena (Row) Post.
     The father of Mrs. Dunn was a native of an eastern state, and he came to Columbiana County, with an aunt, Mrs. Susan Zimmerman, who was an early settler.  The mother of Mrs. Dunn was born near Wellsville, Ohio, and taught school for a time in Columbiana County.  Mrs. Dunn was seven years of age when her parents settled at Salem, where her father conducted a livery business for a number of years.  She was educated in the Salem schools and grew to womanhood in that city.
     On May 25, 1860, she was married in William Dunn who was born at Buffalo, New York, Nov. 15, 1831, and was a son of Robert and Ellen Dunn both parents being natives of England.  William Dunn was mainly reared at Salem, and after his marriage he engaged in farming near that city until about 1880, when he removed to Green township, Mahoning County, settling on the farm which Mrs. Dunn now owns, on which he died two years later.  There were seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. Dunn the six survivors being:  Robert, residing near Salem, engaged in farming; Clara, who married Van Dunn, residing near Wellsville; Homer, residing near Alliance; Ella, who married George Carlisle, residing at Youngstown; May, who married George Crutchley, residing near Alliance; Ella, who married George Carlisle, residing at Youngstown; May, who married George Crutchley, residing at Millville; and Nora, who married Leonard Barber, residing near Millville.  Mrs. Dunn has eleven grandchildren.
     The death of Mr. Dunn removed from this section a good citizen, a kind husband and an affectionate father.  He was a man of upright character and enjoyed the esteem of all who knew him, and he is affectionately remembered by his family and by his neighbors, to whom he was all that was kind, generous and just.  Mrs. Dunn enjoys a wide acquaintance and has the love of her large family as well as the respect of all who have business or social relations with her.  Her farm is well managed and is one of the most productive in this section.
