THE WESTERN STAR, 24 March 1888
Obituary of DR. C. L. DUNN
Dr. C. L. Dunn, one of the early settlers in Comanche county and one of the founders of the town of Nescatunga, died last Saturday at his home in Medicine Lodge, of blood poison, aged 34 years. The doctor incurred the case of blood poison in one of his hands from the practice of his profession several weeks ago and it gradually spread throughout his system until it caused death. The deceased was well known in this
county, having resided at Nescatunga for a couple of years prior to his removal to Medicine Lodge. In regard to his past career, we clip from the Medicine Lodge Index the following:

"Dr. Dunn was born September 23rd, 1853, at Abingdon, Washington county, Virginia. He was educated at Emery and Henry college. His medical course was at the University of Maryland, at Baltimore. He went south for his health, and afterwards practiced his profession in Texas, Old Mexico and Kansas. He went to Mexico in 1882, remained nearly two years, and then came to Kansas and located in Medicine Lodge. In the summer of 1884 he moved to Comanche county, and was one of the founders of the town of
Nescatunga. He sold out his interest there and last year returned to Medicine Lodge and re-entered the practice of medicine. He was married March 4, 1879, to Miss Hattie A. Hammett, who survives him. He leaves two boys, Conn, aged 7, and Rex, aged ? years. His mother, sister and three brothers live in Virginia."
