I am looking for information about the parents/siblings/wife of George Dunkle(Commonly given middle name of Washington) who married Margaret Boyd(believed but not proven married 1830 in Huntingdon Co, PA). His son Alexander Nelson Dunkle is my gggGF.
George was born Sept 1805. I know he was a gunsmith in Metal Township in 1850, in Oxford Illinois, in 1860, Bates, MO in 1870 and died in Page, Lincoln, Iowa in Feb. 1877. I've seen various trees with father as George S. via Ohio(Proven Incorrect), Geo W from Metal, and John and Mary McKinney from Letterkenney(considering one of his sons was George McKinney, I'm leaning towards him) and a Daniel Dunkle. But none of the trees I've seen appear conclusive to me.
His children were Mary 1831-(I lost her after 1860), William Boyd 1834-1877, John 1835-(Lost him after 1860), Margaret Susannah 1841-1842, and Alexander Nelson 1843-1886.
