His father Abner Dunsmoor sent word to his brother Hiel Dunsmoor to come and take Augustus home with him to Malta, Morgan County, Ohio. Hiel then acted as his father and Augustus never saw his father, Abner, after he was two years old. When Augustus was grown his uncle, Hiel, took him into the furniture factory and gave him 1/4 or 1/3 ownership. Later Augustus acquired the whole business. -- From Nellie Ataline Gard, Ancestors and Descendants of Phineas and Polly (Gage) Dunsmoor, Marietta, Ohio, 1971, page 43.
