Cunningham, John 1 3 2 - - edgefield sc 1790 former 96th.
in the other part of the state lived another John Cunningham.
who was he? GEN Robert Cunningham had a named John Cunningham who married Ann HAROLD 1795 This John here has children under 16 so he wouldnt be the Gen s son,the GENS brother John had a elder son named John by Hannah that would be the the most probable case. yet there was another John Cunningham married into a PARRIS family that of Eiasha Pearis and Samuel PARRIS in SURRY NC. he had had a son named a John Cunningham too,

Parker, Elisha 1754
Parker, Peter 1754
Parris, Thomas 1718/19 note .that there was also a Samuel Peris penn. purchased land in BEAUFORT NC, which is next to Perquimans. Therefore a lot of the NC. parris Parish PEARIS families came by these mentioned here.
so its a close call, the John of EDGEFIELD could be either one.
