Jacob Dunmire - Brother of Peter Dunmire
Jacob Dunmire was a Civil War causality.I have no vital statistics on him or any of his family. He married Lydia King who bore them five children. There was Robert, (Bobby, who had a farm up the road from Ezra), Isaiah, Parker, William, and a daughter whose name is not known. These children of Jacob and Lydia all married and raised families. Information regarding these families was provided by Harry I. Dunmire, grandson of Isaiah and second cousin to me. He and I met at my father's funeral at Apollo in October, 1978.
Abraham Dunmire is the third brother of Peter and is a complete mystery. I have no information at all about him or his family.
