The Livingston Democrat of yesterday contained the following sketch of John Dunlavey, whose death was mentioned in Tuesday's Argus: John Dunlavey died at his home in Hamburg on Saturday last, February 7, aged 73 years. The deceased was bom in the state of New York. He carne to Michigan with his parents when 13 years of age, and settled in Hambnrg township, where his father took up a claim from the government on July 6th, 1831, when this county was yet a wilderness. Mr. Dunlavey was a resident of Hamburg township 60 years, and during that time by hard work and frugality accumulated a large property. He was a good man in all that the term implies. Conscientious in all his dealings with his fellow men, and generous to a fault, he won and retained the friendship and respect of all with whom he associated. He leaves a widow. The funeral was held atSt. Joseph's Catholic Church in Dexter, on Monday, and the remains were followed to their resting place by a large number of friends and relatives, the procession being over a mile in length.
