Re: INFO ON WILEY DUNN BORN ABT 1808
Just a long shot.I have William Lewis/Louis Dunn born about 1829-32 in Alabama.In 1850 he is listed as age 21 in Jefferson Cty,AL living in the household of William Dunn b. 1805 and wife Miranda (sp?) Dunn. I think she is 26.On the marriage license (from Marshall County AL) her maiden name is listed as Dunn.On the 1850 census the HOH is listed, then his wife, then 2 young children and then William L. Dunn, age 21 is listed last.I do not know the relationship.He could be the older William's son or nephew.Or he could be a brother to Miranda as they are close in age.
Then in 1860, my William L. Dunn is listed on Marshall County, AL with three children and no wife.The oldest child is William Wylie Dunn, I think he was born about 1854.William L. Dunn married a neighbor widow, Arilla Angeline Jennings West.The family all later went to Faulkner County, AR where they lived and most of them died there.
If any of this is familiar to you, we can share info as I have a lot of it.
