Thomas Dunlop (b. 1905) emigrated from Scotland in 1913 after his father saved enough money working in a tile shop to bring over his family, eventually working for DuPont. He lived in Breck's Lane, where the family took in boarders. He worked as a chauffeur for Hallock du Pont from 1928 until 1932.
