The Oxford County Advertiser reported on December 4, 1885:

"A.M. Dunham is employing his spare time in making snowshoes. He has made a number of pairs and they are good ones. He has a most excellent pattern. They are filled with raw hide and will last a life time. He has several pairs on hand and for sale."
