Biography of William C. Dunlap

Dunlap, William C., p. o. Oakfleld, N. Y., was born in Orleans county, N.Y., November 16, 1820, a son of William and Elizabeth (Hunt) Dunlap. His father was a native of Connecticut, and came to Orleans county when a young man; he died in August, 1874. William C. Dunlap secured his education in the common schools of Shelby, attending at the old log school house. Mr. Dunlap is one of the representative farmers of Genesee county. In 1843 he came to this county and settled on the farm which he now occupies. He has been identified with all the public enterprises of the town of Oakfield. He has been particularly energetic, enterprising and liberal in all that pertains to public affairs; any undertaking for the benefit of the town always has been sure of his support; in his neighborhood he has borne more than his share of the labors, serving as school trustee and pathmaster almost continuously for years. He has held the offices of assessor, overseer of the poor, highway commissioner, and trustee of the seminary for thirty years-always with satisfaction to his fellow townsmen. No one was ever more ready to assist a neighbor than he, and he is benevolent and charitable to an unusual degree; he is always called upon in troubles of every nature, being clear-headed, impartial and sound in his views; and has always lived an exemplary, energetic and active life, with no derogatory habits. He married Mary E. Noble, daughter of Boitwood Noble of Orleans county, in April, 1844. Their children are Mary Jane (Dunlap) White, Andrew A. and Ida (Dunlap) Gubb.
