MRS. MARGARET DUNNICK, widow of Nicholas Dunnick, who was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, November 15, 1821. Mrs. Dunnick was born in Fayette county, Ohio, in December 3, 1826, her maiden name being Mantle. They were married in Fayette county, Ohio, in October, 1844. Two years later they moved to Illinois, remaining a part of the winter in Springfield, and the following four years were spent on a farm on Lick Creek, north of Chatham. From there they moved to Mechanicsburg, where they bought the old Mechanicsburg Mill, which was the first mill built in the township. They have seven children, all born in Sangamon county: George J., born January 16, 1851; Angie Lee, December 2, 1852; Fannie, August 4, 1854; Kate, July 25, 1856; Emma F., June 7, 1858; Lennia, June 24, 1864; Clyde, August 25, 1866. Twenty-five years ago Mr. Dunnick built the present Mechanicsburg Mill, which he afterwards sold, and again purchased five years since, and it is now a part of the estate. The family live now on their farm near the village. Mr. Dunnick died September 15, 1881, after an illness of but four days, and a well spent life of almost sixty years. He was an energetic, conscientious business man, and his whole life’s conduct was marked by the strictest integrity and regard for the rights of others. During his life he was called upon to fill a number of local offices, and he and wife were members of the M. E. Church. He was a steward in the church of which he was an efficient and useful member for many years.
