Fellow Adkins family researchers,


Adkins, Lewvania md Daniel H(A) Dunham 8/2/1805, bondsman was John D Garrett.


John D Garrett & Daniel A Dunham were buyers at sale of estate of John Garrett, Wmson Co, TN, 1806.

Inventory of estate ofThos S Adkins in 1817 included a $4 note on Daniel Dunham.


There was a Daniel Dunham in 1811 tax list and 1820 census of Davidson Co, TN, but I'm not sure this was the same Daniel Dunham.

1830 CENSUS of TIPTON CO, TN: p269; Dunham, Daniel 1021001-1201201.


Written/signed 1/7/1837, produced in Tipton Co Court 4/3/1837; Will of Daniel A Dunham, "late of said county by one of his executors (& son-in-law) Charles G(lover?) Fisher": "wife Lovania and all my said chilidren viz Elizabeth V Fisher (Mrs Charles G), Sarah H Temple (Mrs Edward M), Daniel F, Robert H, Lovania A, Martha A, Rebeca J, John H and Eleanor A, and such others may, after the due execution of this presents, be born to have and to hold..."

I just recently found these listings of Dunham & Fisher in 1880 FC of Grimes Co, TX. I quickly realized that I had copied some Adkins from this same county earlier, and I was able to make the connections, except that the Wm Adkins, son of Thos S Adkins & Elizabeth Ensley Jones evidently went by Joel Walker Adkins, Sr. His father had died when he was very young, and his mother remarried to Joel Walker Winston in Madison Co, AL in 1817.

I will post more to this forum as I gather it, and I invite other Adkins & Dunham family researchers to join in, anytime, more later, happy holidays, Richard.
