I found a better source on Dunlap's early baseball career than the one used in this post. On October 6, 1887, the Atchison (Kansas) Daily Globe published the same information as Sporting Life (only this time, I could actually read it):
He first played ball at Gloucester, N.J., in 1874. In 1876 he played with the Chester team the fore part of the season, and the latter part with the Quicksteps, of Wilmington, Del., as pitcher. In 1877 he was with the Auburns, of New York, as second baseman, in 1878 with the Hornellsville and Albany clubs, of New York, in 1879 with the Albanys, in 1880 to 1883 with the Cleveland league team...Dunlap is called "the king of second basemen."
