GEORGE L. DUNN, farmer, P. O. White Oak, was born in Brown County, Ohio, June 18, 1854, and is a son of Ira B. and Sarah E. Dunn, who were the parents of seven children, of whom six now survive. George is the first son and first child, and is considered one of our most prosperous young farmers, endowed with the good business characteristics of his father, and is every way worthy of representation in this work. He began life for himself at twenty-two years of age, engaging in farming; this he continued for one year, when he took the agency of the Cincinnati & Eastern Railroad, a position which he occupied for four years; he acquired his education in the State Normal School at Carlisle, Ky. He was married, April 8, 1876, to Emma Pickering, and their home has been blessed with three children — Lawrence T., Ira Frank and Henry Harley.
