I've recently discovered internet information on Charles M Cunningham born abt 1821 Lincoln Co, TN who married Mary Pauline Hubbard 6 Feb 1846 in Obion Co, TN.The source for this information noted one child, Rebecca Jane Cunningham b 12 Sep 1850 Obion Co, TN.
After Mary Pauline's death Charles married Marion Louisa McElyea 25 Dec 1855 and they had four children: Elizabeth Caroline b 2 Oct 1856, Charles M b abt 1857, Harvey b abt 1858, and Maggie b abt 1859.
Charles is said to have died during the Civil War sometime between 1862/1865 at Rolla, Phelps Co, MO.
The 1870 Carroll Co AR Census lists the following in the household of Louisa Cunningham: Louisa age 34 female born AL, Lucinda C age 17 female born TN, Frances age 16 female born TN, Prisilla age 14 female born TN, Elizabeth age 12 female born TN, Charles age 11 male born TN, William H age 10 male born TN, Margaret age 8 female born TN.
I have known about Lucinda Catherine Cunningham for years.She is my g-g-grandmother who married James Moore 5 Sep 1873 in Carroll Co, AR.I was also aware of Louisa Cunningham because she provided a statement on behalf of Lucinda and James' children when they applied for James' Civil War pension.James died 30 Jul 1878 and Lucinda died abt 1883 near Diamond Newton Co, MO. We have not located a burial site for her.
Since there are only two known marriages for Charles M Cunningham the above census would indicate more than one child from the first marriage to Mary Pauline Hubbard.
Further research reveals Polina Pricillia Cunningham was born 23 Aug 1855.
Louisa started married life with three children under fours years old, had four children of her own in that many years; then was widowed sometime in the early 1860s.
Does anyone know what happened to Rebecca Jane Cunningham??Who raised her??
Would appreciate additional information on any members of this family.
