I am looking for information about the Dunn Family. I believe the family was residing in Saline County, IL, from Oct 1890 to Nov 1893, probably longer.
Mr & Mrs Dunn were killed in an unknown accident, between 1895-1899, and their children were seperated and sent to strangers for adoption. They had 2 young boys and a baby girl (possibly others). Their son, Fredrick Herman Dunn, was born Oct. 15 1890 in Galatia, IL. He was sent to Olmsted County, MN where he was adopted by Sebert & Elma Leonard. Their other son, Glenn Ray Dunn, was born Nov. 16, 1893 in Galatia, IL. He was sent to Spring Valley, MN where he was adopted by Jerome & Georgianna Stevens. I have no information on the baby girl or other children.
I'm uncertain why the boys were sent to Minnesota - an "orphan train" or the Methodist Church may have been involved.
