  Dunnuck appointed Attorney General by Gov. Hartrantf of Pennsylvania.
  1870 Census for Ottawa, LaSalle County, IL, age 40 and wife of S.N.(could be L.N.) Roll 244, page 537. no children in home, Mr. Dunnick was a Physicians Druggist. In looking at later census data from 1900 & 1910 I This this may have been a Dummick not Dunnick.
Samantha DUNNUCK (Smantha)
  d/o John (1814) and Elizabeth Ann (nee: ELIOTT) widow (KENDALL) DUNNUCK
  b. July 22, 1860 Washington IN
  d. January 31 1926, age 65y, 6 m, 9d (cemetery records) b. 1860
Death certificate #28, Umatilla Co. OR - same date (Weston, OR)
  + William Elisah DRISKELL Farmer in Charleston, Washington Co. KS in 1880
  William was the son of Lewis A. Driskell who was born in KS in ca 1816, according to the 1880 census which lists "father" Lewis living with William
  William was b.about 1846 in IN. and was 14 years older than Samantha.
  William b. 1847 and d. Jan 3, 1922 at LaGrande, OR
  They were living:
in Charleston twp, Washington Co. KS in 1880
Moved to Oregon in 1884
in Weston, OR in 1907
in Weston, OR in 1920
  The 1880 census also lists two children living with Samantha and William but their relationship is not listed. They were Cora A.born circa 1878 and Royal Edward born circa 1880. In the 1920 census Royal is listed as a son so I assume Cora is a daughter. Royal, who died in 1943 near Heppner, OR is buried with Samantha, William and Roscoe.at the Weston, OR cemetery, East section G, row 4.
  Royal was 39 and still single in 1920, living with parents. He was a Engineer - Gas Tractors
  Another child: Roscoe W. born 1884 and died in 1902

  Because of the name Keys with this DUNNICK family I believe it to be part of the descendants of John 1747 - three of John's descendants intermarried with the Keys family. Son, Thomas had descendants that went to IL (1885 Census - Whitman Co. Washinton (State) )

Living with Stradley in 1860 was Charles Louderman age 21, Nancy age 18, and Susan age 12, all born before her marriage to Louderman in 1849.
