Birth*Rollin Dunshee was born in July 1820 at Bristol, Addison Co., VT.3,4 
He was the son of John Dunshee and Alma Prime.1,2 
OccupationRollin Dunshee was a 29 year old wheelwright in 1850 at Bristol, Addison Co., VT.1 
Note*He was a member of a group that established the first high school on 26 October 1852 at Bristol, Addison Co., VT.5 
NoteHe served a town selectman between 1856 and 1857 at Bristol, Addison Co., VT.6 
Occupation*He was a manufacturer of "Dunshee wagons" and buggies in 1860 at San Jose, Santa Clara Co., CA.7 
OccupationHe was engaged in real estate investment and speculation in 1873 at Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Co., CA.7 
Residence*He lived in 1885 at his ranch at, Montecito, Santa Barbara Co., CA.7 
Story*J. M. Guinn, in a history of Southern CA had an entry concerning Rollin but, in error, states his mother's maiden name was Dowd instead of Prime (Electa Dowd was Rollin's maternal grandmother):

The history of Santa Barbara county would be incomplete without due and even particular reference to the abilities and attributes of Rollin Dunshee, with whose name is connected all that is best in the early and later development of Montecito. A native of the town of Bristol, Addison county, Vt., he was born in July of 1820, a son of John and Alma (Dowd) [sic., should be Prime, see paragraph above] Dunshee, who were born in Vermont. On the maternal side, the Dowd family were very early settlers of New Haven, Vt., and at the present time are still represented in that community. The Dunshee homestead in Vermont came into the family many years ago, the paternal grandfather having settled there when Addison county was a wilderness.
The second son in a family of nine children [ten have been named], Rollin Dunshee lived in Addison county until nearly forty years of age. A portion of the homestead fell to his inheritance, and for many years he was a manufacturer of wagons, known the country over as the Dunshee wagons, also an equally high grade of buggies being made by him. The last conveyance manufactured under his supervision in the east, took the premium at the district fair. In 1860 he transferred his field of activity to the coast, coming by way of Panama and thence to San Francisco. At San José he engaged in his former occupation for about five years, and then returned to Vermont, to find that it compared to its disadvantage with the broader opportunities in the west. Again locating in San José, he continued to manufacture buggies and wagons, shipping most of the hardwood lumber for their construction from the east. In 1873 he came to Santa Barbara, where lived a brother, John Dunshee, also engaged in the manufacture of wagons and buggies, and he here retired permanently from the manufacturing business, and engaged in real-estate investment and speculation.
In 1885 Mr. Dunshee settled on his ranch at Montecito, which, however, had been in his possession for several years. Here he lives one of those ideal existences of which few have the inclination to avail themselves, or, having which, do not know how to encompass. Alone, yet never alone, he is surrounded with the unchanging companionship of books, those versatile friends of the cultured mind. In keeping with this broadly comprehensive appreciation of the fine things of life is the gentle humanitarianism which dictates an interest, and suggests a practical help in innumerable instances, and which has gained him a reputation second to none as a sure help in time of need.
In politics a Republican, Mr. Dunshee has been prominently before the public for years, especially in his native state, which nominated and elected him to the legislature with Esking. Since coming to Santa Barbara county he has served as a school trustee. Fraternally he enjoys a wide reputation, and always takes an active interst in Masonic lodges, being known as one of the best degree workers in the state. He is a member of the Santa Barbara Lodge No. 191, and has been master of the lodge for six years in succession; he is also past high priest of the Corinthian Chapter, R. A. M. It is generally conceded that he has most generously contributed to the general enterprises for building up the county.7
 
Death*He died on 1 December 1907 at Santa Barbara Co., CA, at age 87.8 
DeathHe died on 3 December 1907 at age 87.4 
DeathHe died in 1910 at Santa Barbara Co., CA; California Pioneers incorrect date of death.3 
Burial*He was buried at Santa Barbara Cemetery (Island, Lot 144), Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Co., CA.4
