Story*This article appeared in "The Daily Review" (probably from Hayward, CA) on 17 Dec 1956: "Father, Kids Reunited"
CHICAGO (INS) - An Oregon rancher who found his two children in Chicago after losing them during World War II, says "this will be a truly wonderful Christmas" for him.
The rancher, Lawrence Dunshee, 37, of Lawrence, Ore., was reunited with his son, Lawrence, Jr., 15, and his daughter, Anise, 17, at family court last week.
Dunshee was awarded custody of the youngsters when he and the children's mother were divorced in Chicago in 1941 and he took them to a small town in Missouri.
When he joined the Merchant Marine in 1943, Dunshee hired a housekeeper, set up a bank account and thought all would be well with them.
While he was at sea, however, his ex-wife took the youngsters and disappeared with them.
When Dunshee returned after the war, he moved to Oregon, hired an attorney and told him to find the children.
The rancher knew only that his ex-wife had married again and moved to a suburb of Chicago.
Dunshee also rewed but his second wife had no children.
Recently, Dunshee recalled the name and address of a distant relative of his first wife.
He contacted the relative and learned that his daughter was in the juvenile home at her own request because she was unhappy at home.7

Death*He died on 7 November 1991 at Lakeside, Coos Co., OR, at age 72.1,6
