Not a lot is known about Hannah Jane Meeker. She came west in 1854 as a newlywed, her husband being Jesse Dunlap. They took out a donation land claim in the Fern Hill district of Tacoma, WA adjacent to the DLC claims taken by her brothers Oliver and Ezra. She had at least three children, all born in Washington Territory. Apparently she had a falling out with the family over religious matters, and kept pretty much apart from family activities for years. She eventually moved to Puyallup and Ezra Meeker wrote that they were on a cordial relationship at the time of her death.

In 1834, in the year that Hannah Jane (Meeker) Dunlap was born, on March 28th, President Andrew Jackson was censured by the United States Congress, 26–20, due to his efforts to close The Second Bank of the United States - which eventually led to the Panic of 1837. The censure was expunged in 1837, after years of effort by Jackson supporters.

In 1848, by the time she was just 14 years old, on January 31st, construction began on the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. - but the monument wasn't completed until 1888. A lack of money, the Civil War, and a dispute over who would manage the monument kept halting construction.

In 1875, by the time she was 41 years old, on May 17th, Aristides was the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby. It was the first year of the "The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports" - begun by Col. Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr., the grandson of William Clark, the explorer.

In 1880, at the age of 46 years old, Hannah was alive when on February 2nd the city of Wabash, Indiana became the third city in the world to be lit by electricity.

In 1902, in the year of Hannah Jane (Meeker) Dunlap's passing, about 150 thousand United Mine Workers went on strike in eastern Pennsylvania for a wage increase and more suitable hours. They eventually got a 10% raise and their workday was reduced from 10 hours to 9. Because winter was coming and most people at the time heated their homes with coal, President Teddy Roosevelt arbitrated between the owners and the workers - the first time that the Federal government arbitrated in a strike.
