  • Notes 
    • widow of Quincy Dunham, of Logan County, Ill. She
      is a daughter of David and Mary (Houser) Alsop, and was born in Spencer
      County, Ky., Aug. 26, 1849. Both the parents were also born in that
      county, where Mr. Alsop was a farmer. They emigrated to Logan County,
      Ill., when Laura was but nine years old, and she has ever since been a
      resident of this State. Her mother died in 1875, and her father is
      still living in Logan County. He, too, although a southerner by birth,
      was a soldier of freedom, and served for three years in the Union army
      as a member of Company F, 106th Illinois Infantry. In fact, all of Mrs.
      Whitton's connections showed themselves to be true patriots, her
      father, her father-in-law, her first and her second husband, all having
      served bravely in the Union ranks. William Dunham, her first husband's
      father, was Chaplain of the 106th Illinois Infantry, the same regiment
      in which her father was a soldier. He served through the war, but
      contracted a disease from which he never recovered, and which
      terminated his life in 1877.
