Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 758, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"HIRAM LUNSFORD was born in Preble County, Ohio, November 7, 1816, and is the eldest of the thirteen children born to DAVID and JANE (MADOX) LUNSFORD, viz: HIRAM, WILLIAM, LOUISA, EMELINE, FRANCES, ELIZABETH, CORDELIA, LEVI, GEORGE, JOHN, BENJAMIN, CHARLES and NANCY; of these WILLIAM, LOUISA, EMELINE, FRANCES, ELIZABETH, BENJAMIN and NANCY are dead. The father was born in Virginia, and came to Ohio when a boy, where he lived until some time in the '40's, when he came to Indiana; he spent his life in farming, and died in Cass County, Indiana, about 1872. About the year 1840, HIRAM LUNSFORD came to Cass County, where he resided two years, and in 1842 came to this township, where he has resided ever since.
