I am working on the WILLIAM DUNN and DIANA TAYLOR, (second wife) family tree for a friend and could use some clues.


WILLIAM DUNN d. Feb 3, 1836 Washington Co VA and UNK first wife d. before 1827 had issue:


HARRIET JANE DUNN b. 1816 Washington Co VA d. 1862 Smith Co TX married Oscar F. KELLER

SOPHRONIA H. DUNN b. 1820 Washington Co VA d. after 1880 possibly MO married Stephen Taylor BRAY

WILLIAM WASHINGTON DUNN b. May 6, 1822 Washington Co VA d. Feb 10, 1910 Fort Worth, Tarrant Co TX married first Emily GILLESPIE, second, Mrs. Nannie Davis SENTER, third Mrs. Lina GRANT

JACOB C. DUNN b. Dec 10 1823 VA d. Oct 14, 1873 Dade Co MO married Louisa Susan Susong COWAN

ALEXANDER J. DUNN b. 1825 VA died possibly after 1898 in Tarrant Co TX



WILLIAM DUNN AND DIANA TAYLOR, second wife, had issue:

JOSEPH T. DUNN b. May 1827 VA possibly died after 1900 in Burnet Co TX married Leah A. CULBERTSON

ELIZA A. DUNN b. 1829 VA

FERDINAND S. DUNN b. Feb 18, 1830 Washington Co VA died Jan. 13, 1909 Fort Worth, Tarrant Co TX married Malinda Eleanor WITTEN in Tazewell Co VA

MARY ELLEN DUNN b. Dec 8, 1832 Washington Co VA died Nov 20, 1889 Fort Davis, Jeff Davis Co TX married James Henry GILLESPIE possibly Tazewell Co VA


SON'S FAMILY............

FERDINAND S. DUNN and MALINDA ELEANOR "LINNIE" WHITTEN HAD 8 children:

VIRGINIA WITTEN DUNN b. 1860 Tazewell Co VA d. 1883 Fort Worth, Tarrant Co TX married William Samuel KELLER

JOHN M. DUNN b. abt. 1861 Tazewell Co VA (more below)

ELIZABETH CATHERINE DUNN b. 1866 Tazewell Co VA d. 1908 Fort Worth, Tarant Co TX married William Samuel KELLER

SARAH A. DUNN b. 1868 Tazewell Co VA d. 1932 Olney, Young Co TX married Charles Kemp CRAWFORD

NAOMIE DUNN b. 1874 MO d. 1935 Abilene, Taylor Co TX married John W. DANNER

OPIE R. DUNN b. 1875 TX d. 1931 Homewood, Jefferson Co AL married Margaret BOWMAN

THOMAS WELDON DUNN b. 1876 TX d. 1941 Fort Worth, Tarrant Co TX married Mamie BRYAN

OSCAR J. DUNN b. 1879 TX d. possibly 1920 LA married Mamie L. FULTON


My question about this son, FERDINAND S. DUNN, is about his first son, JOHN M. DUNN b. 1861. Does anyone have any info on this man?

I strongly suspect that this man is JOHN MARSHALL DUNN b. July 8, 1859 in Tazewell Co VA d. July 20, 1938 Wichita Falls, Wichita Co TX, while living with his married daughter, and was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Merkel, Taylor Co TX, who married FRONA SWEARINGEN, b. 1865 KY and died 1925 Merkel, Taylor Co TX, married 1889 Fort Worth, Tarrant Co TX. This couple had 9 children all born in either Fort Worth or Azle, Tarrant Co TX between 1890 and 1908.

Issue:

MILTON ALFRED DUNN
WILLIAM FERDINAND DUNN
ELBERT EUGENE DUNN
DETMER THOMAS DUNN
HOMER JAY DUNN
JOHN M. DUNN
FRED E. DUNN
ROBERT S. DUNN
PAUL NORRIS DUNN

I would appreciate any clues that would help cement my supposition that the two JOHN M. DUNNs are one in the same. I have a few thoughts on this theory that I am willing to share.
