Mrs. Clara A. Dunbar, 78, mother of John H. Dunbar, attorney-general and one of the state’s best known pioneers, died at her home at Olympia, July 22.

Mrs. Dunbar was the widow of Judge Dunbar, justice of the state supreme court and prominent pioneer and Washington attorney. She was born in Portland, Ore., in 1852. She came to Olympia when she was one year old.

Judge and Mrs. Dunbar were the only white persons to survive the Indiana outrages in Klickitat county in 1870.

Mrs. Dunbar was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William White. They came west in 1850. Mr. White was killed on the Yelm road in Thurston county by a wandering band of Klickitat Indians. The Indians were later captured and hanged by an aroused group of white settlers. – Oregonian.
