Henry P. Brunker Gunmaker, Ottawa, Illinois

Illinois' most prolific gunmaker. Henry P. Brunker arrived in Ottawa, LaSalle County, Illinois, in 1848. He had learned his trade in his native Upstate New York. He closed his shop in 1871, and died of consumption (tuberculosis) in 1872. I have seen nearly seventy rifles by this excellent gunmaker.
