Does anyone have any information about Joel Dunton, who diedin Franklin, Mass. at the age of 42 by the kick of a horse?  He was married to Lavinia Gould and they hadCharles, Nancy, Alonzo, Eveline and Waldo (my great-grandfather).  The family story is that he came here fromScotland but I find no immigration documents for him.  I also can’t link him to any of the Duntonfamilies from around New England.  Hismarriage and death certificates don’t list parents or place of birth.  Any information or leads would beappreciated.
