Thank you for that information. it was a great help and allowed me to figure some things out. i do have more info and not quite sure how to proceed. ill label it here and if anything comes to mind please let me know.
looking for any info on John Dunlap b.3.24.1873 d.6.25.1961 Birth place unknown. Death in bomont,wv On all documents John list his birth place and parents as Wv. but cant find/know of any info to support it
The Following is KNOWN.. John Married Rosa Lee Mullins 1.6.1906 Kanawha co.Wv, this is his Second marriage according to the 1910 census
1910 census has them in Big sandy,Kanawha co Wv.with 5 children John H Dunlap b.1908 Jesse Waitman Dunlap b.1909 Dock W mullins (step son) b. 1902 Grusie E mullins (Step Daughter) b. 1903 Harry "goodridge" mullins (step Son)b. 1906 * rosa was married prior to Harland Mullins John Dunlap was her second marriage. * on John H (johnie)death record list father as John "W" Dunlap. this is the only known documentation of a middle initial.
1920 Census has them in Elk,Kanawha co Wv with two more children Booker Wilburt Dunlap b.1915 Gracie Dunlap 2/12 months old
i Have not located them on the 1930 census as of yet. There was another Daughter Born after 1920 "ruth" she is listed on the obit for John as Daughter ruth richards.
*also on his obit,and death record it lists a MEADOWS and a liza Meadows as his mother. Posible mistake ?? Rosa Lee Dunlap's mother's maiden name was eliza meadows.
if anyone can help with any other information i would greatly appreciate it. little is know orally about john and his life.
where did he come from? who was His first wife ? Parents Names? 1930 Census? 1880 Census? is the middle initial correct? im at a stand still and appreciate any help
