Biographical Sketch of Amasa H. Dunbar

AMASA H. DUNBAR, son of Sylvester and Hannah Powers Dunbar, born in 1807, early in life removed to Moravia, N. Y., where we have the amplest testimony of his neighbors showing he has been a most successful and popular teacher, and is a respected and influential citizen. He has always taken a deep interest in educational matters, and has long been the director in the Moravian Institute. He is gifted with fine intellectual powers, is a good scholar, social and humorous. He became connected by marriage with one of the best families of his adopted village, and has two sons. His eldest son, GEORGE WARD DUNBAR, graduated at Hobart College, Geneva, N. Y., and at the General Theological Seminary, N. Y. City, and is a successful clergyman of the Episcopal Church. The younger son is a trader in Buffalo, N. Y. Mr. DA is now engaged in improving text-books for the schools.
