DUNBAR, Duncan, clergyman, born in the northern highlands of Scotland about 1791 ; died in New York City, 28 July 1864. When about twenty years old he removed to Aberdeen and engaged in business, occasionally preaching as a layman. He settled in the province of New Brunswick in 1817, where he became a Baptist, and was immersed in the harbor of St. John, 31 October 1818. He was soon afterward ordained, removed to the United States in December 1823, and held pastorates in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Most of his ministry was spent in the McDougal Street Baptist Church in New York City. He was for twenty years a member of the board of managers of the American and foreign Bible society. See his life by his son-in-law, Rev. Jeremiah Chaplin (New York, 1878).
