James Dunning Pennsylvania Fur Trader, 1747.

James Dunning was an active trader through the years, and on July 9, 1747, he was accused by the Indians before the Provincial Council with having stolen forty-seven deer skins and three horses from a sober, quite Delaware on the Juniata River.  The Indians pursued him to Erie and to Ohio, but could not come up with him, and reported him as having gone down the Ohio.  Dunning had a sleeping place on the Allegheny Trail to Shannopin's Town somewhere near the head of Bruch Creek, but it's exact locttion has never been determind.
