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.
