Eugene Allen DUNBAR was the husband of Fredericka Merrow HYDE. As you can see by this headstone, he was a veteran. He was born in Hartford, CT on 6 May 1880 and lived there until he married on 21 Apr 1914 in Lynn, MA when he was 33 years old.

Eugene was the son of John DUNBAR and Maria GIBBON. His parents were both born in Ireland and lived in Connecticut.

Eugene was a pharmacist in the US Navy for 31 years until he retired. In 1920, he and his wife and children were living in Hudson, MA in the house next door to Linda and Phares (with a field in between). The sisters made a close family with my father-in-law and the oldest son, Vergene Emerson DUNBAR being quite close in age. There are several photo of the boys playing together.

Eugene is buried next his wife. He died 9 May 1958. Eugene and Fredericka had four children. Two are still living.
