I have just received a very interesting e-mail from another Dunsmoor cousin, Bob Lorette.He sent me a web site in which you can read Irving A. Dunsmoor's account of life in Minnesota in 1852/1853, published ina book entitled "Old Rail Fence Corners."The web site to view his work is:
I found the 2 1/2 page article to be very interesting.Irving A. Dunsmoor is the son of James Adams Dunsmoor and Almira Mosher, who married on June 4, 1837 (my gr-gr-great paternal grandfather and grandmother.)Irving's borther is James Franklin Dunsmoor (my gr-great grandfather who was born March 19, 1838) and who married Hattie Murdoc Hoffman.His other brothers included Albert V., Charles H., Frederick A. and John Marcus.Irving Dunsmoor married "Sarah."
I hope you find this article interesting, and if you have any other information to add, I'd love to hear from you.
