Genealogical and Personal History of Centre and Clinton County, Pennsylvania, 1912

John Dunlap Biography

John Dunlap, (son of the colonel), married Elizabeth Findley, of Franklin County, and came to the neighborhood of Bellefonte in 1794, and built, in connection with Col. Miles; Harmony Forge, on Spring Creek (now, 1882, Linn & McCoy's), in 1795.

He also erected a grist-mill and saw-mill at Bellefonte, and the forge now Valentines & Co., adjoining Bellefonte on the south, in 1798, and owned the furnace some miles up Logan's Branch, run by Boggs & Royer for many years (now abandoned).

In 1810, in connection with William Beatty, he built Washington Furnace, now in Clinton County. He was one of the most energetic iron-masters in the county.

On the morning of Saturday, Oct. 8, 1814, he was crushed to death by a body of falling earth in a minebank near Bellefonte. His loss was severely felt and deeply lamented.

He was amiable indisposition and temper, and his moral and religious character irreproachable. He left a widow, Elizabeth (nee Findley, of Franklin County) and four children, Jane, married William Stewart, of Cincinnati; Eliza, died young; Catherine, who was never married and lately deceased; Deborah, married Hon. S. T. Shugert, father of J. D. Shugert.
