Mr. Dull was married to Martha Elizabeth Paul November 13, 1866. They moved to Malvern, Iowa, in August, 1876, and lived there until the death of his wife February 25, 1909. Much of the time since, he has made his home with his son Harry, formerly of Glenwood. When his son moved to California he made his home with his two daughters.

He was a member of Co F, 17th Penn. cavalry, and served the greater portion of three years under Philip Sheridan. He was one of Sheridan's escorts in the famous ride from Winchester to Cedar Creek. He had a spirited horse, and being a splendid horseman, was the only one of the detail of twenty-five, who was able to keep in sight of his commander. Mr. Dull also participated in the battle of Gettysburg, and he greatly enjoyed the 50th anniversary reunion held there in 1913.

He leaves a son, Harry, of Los Angeles, California; two daughters - Mrs. Elizabeth Kayton of Strahan, and Mrs. Alice St. Clair of Clarion, Iowa; and one sister, Miss Mary Dull, of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the Malvern Methodist church, conducted by the Rev. Peter Jacobs of Randolph, assisted by the Rev. Frank Caldwell of Malvern. Interment was in the Malvern cemetery.
