Was a Veteran of the War and for Many Years on the Police Force

Officer William Dunn died at his home on South Champlain street at 7:30 o'clock last evening after a years' illness with Bright's disease, having been confined to his bed for the last seven months. Mr. Dunn was 60 years of age, having been born in this city in July, 1843, a son of Patrick and Annie Dunn. Here he spent practically all his life. For a time he was employed in the lumber yards and later for four years was messenger at the customs house. For the last nine years he had been on the city police force, part of the time as a special and part as a regular officer.

Mr. Dunn enlisted and was mustered into service January 8, 1864, being mustered out in July of the following year. He was a member of Company B and his war record is a most creditable one, he being considered one of the bravest and most gallant soldiers of the 17th Vermont regiment. He was a member of the G. A. R. and color bearer of Stannard Post.

Mr. Dunn was married in 1860 to Miss Bridget Moran of this city. She died several years since and he is survived by three sons, Thomas and Frank of Boston and Stephen of Philadelphia, besides two daughters, Misses Elizabeth and Margaret Dunn of this city. The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed.
