Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 766, Rich Grove Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"THOMAS DUNNE is a native of Ireland, in which country the remains of his mother lie interred. His father, who was a stonemason, died in Wisconsin. THOMAS came to America in May, 1847, and was married in Michigan City Indiana, to MISS CATHERINE SHANASY, also a native of Ireland. The living offspring of this union number eight, and are named - JAMES, MICHAEL, THOMAS, JOHN, HANNAH, ELIZABETH, JULIA and ROSS. For a number of years after his marriage, MR. DUNNE did laboring work at Michigan City, mostly about the depot. He then bought forty acres of land in this county, which he increased to eighty, then sold and bought other land within a mile of Medaryville; after awhile, he sold out again, and purchased 160 acres of his present farm in this township. Recently, he has sold a portion of this farm to one of his sons, retaining 120 acres, which make a pleasant home. MR. and MRS. DUNNE are members of the Catholic Church."
