James Kennedy Dunlap, 1918

James Kennedy Dunlap was born in southern Pennsylvania in the Cumberland Valley. His great-great-grandfather was one of the first Scotch-Irish immigrants in the area. In 1903 Mr. Kennedy married Miss Nellie Hayes, also of Pennsylvania. The Dunlaps moved to Columbus in 1909. Nellie Hayes was active in the Arlington Red Cross Unit, which was formed August 19, 1918. Ladies of Upper Arlington were encouraged to join, and the group assembled weekly to contribute to the war effort, sewing hospital clothes, pillow cases, and towels. Mr. Dunlap was one of the participating residents in the War Gardens, producing crops of potatoes, corn, and beans. J. K. Dunlap's mother-in-law, Mrs. Helen W. Hayes, also resided with the couple at 1700 Arlington Avenue. As of the printing of the Norwester article in March 1918, James and Nellie Dunlap, along with Mrs. Dunlap's mother, were planning to move to Dayton, Ohio where Mr. Dunlap had accepted a position with a brokerage firm. The George S. Hershey family moved into the house at 1700 Arlington Avenue after the Dunlap family vacated the residence.
