[Jo Goodwin Notes: Story goes that Will was playing cards with the county judge, sheriff, etc. and thought he killed either the sheriff or judge, when he thought they were cheating. He lit out, abandoning his family. Later, he did find four of his children, two others having previous died accidental deaths. (According to Ida's hospital record, she gave birth to seven children, but I have not found records for another child.) Will attempted to reconcile with his children and to a degree was successful. He moved to Caldwell, MO, for a while, married Mattie Counts Burks and lived with her for a while. After that marriage failed, he moved to the Mt. Springs community where he lived the remainder of his life. He was killed by his cousin, Harvey Stevens, at Mt. Springs community--hit in the head with a hoe one night as he came in from town, after being out drinking. Harvey was mentally impaired, and Will had taken him in to live with him, but Harvey did not like Will drinking. We still do not know if he knew it was Will Dunn that he killed, or if he thought he was "protecting" the property.]
