Robert C. Dunn started to California in 1850 to hunt gold , was never heard from again.
Information probably provided by his daughter Nancy Johnson Dunn, who lived most of her life near, and was held in some esteem by, Vera Tranter.
Others have suggested that Robert C. Dunn returned to Indiana, perhaps because he is mentioned in his father's probate record as "resident in Indiana" in connection with an uncollected loan, but that was where Robert's wife was living. There is no evidence that Robert ever returned.
