  • Notes 
    • DUNLAP, Robert and David Dunlap were born in Ireland, but came to America with their parents when they were small boys, and settled in North Carolina.
      David, brother of Robert Dunlap Sr., taught the first school in Fulton. He had but one leg, and supplied the place of the lost member with an old fashioned wooden peg-leg. He married and had 1 daughter, and died of cholera, at Portland, in 1840. The citizens of the place had such a dread of the disease that they buried him as soon as he was dead, in the dress he had on at the time. It was ascertained soon afterwards that he had $2,800 in a pocket in his undershirt, and two or three of the boldest citizens ventured to take the body up and get the money.
