Mrs. James (Hattie Ellis) Dunbar

     I recently read this book, Highlights of our Baptist Work: in Springfield West, O'Leary, Alma Churches 1852-1977.  Therein was the mention of only one person from Alma - that of Mrs. James *Jim* Dunbar of the Centerline Road where today Kent and Lloydia Smallman live in a new house.
     Below is the cover of the book.
 Below: inside the front cover - the churches of the congregations.
 Below:  The history of Hattie (Ellis) Dunbar.
     Below: the Jim and Hattie Dunbar homestead not long before it was demolished for the new, present home on the property.  It was located on the north side of the Centerline Road across the road from Spurgeon Jeffery's homestead.
