Edward "Ned" Nunnellee, who came from Virginia about 1806 to the Fifth District, came to Gray's Bend about 1810, and died here. He was the father of Washington, Mark, and Timothy Nunnellee. His daughter, Jane, was the first wife of Jesse R. Eason. Nunnellee was buried on the John V. Gray place. Anderson Nunnelly lived in Gray's Bend in 1818. These names are the same in pronunciation, but are spelled differently."

I also have:
Edward Nunnelee applied for revolutionary pension while living in Hickman County, Sept. 10, 1832, at which time he was 76 years of age. He died at his home in that county April 19, 1836. He lived with his parents in Virginia at the time of his enlistment. Their names are not given, nor the place or time of his birth, but he was evidently born in 1756. He entered the service in 1775, as a private in Captain Faulkner's company under Colonels Eppes and Isaace Read, in Virginia troops.
His father died during the first year of service. He returned to his mother's home and enlisted again in Captain Thomas Boyer's company, and was in the battles of Guilford Court House, Camden, Friday's Fort, Eutaw Springs and the Siege of ninety-six.
He was discharged January 6, 1782, having served 18 months. He moved to Tennessee before 1817, at which time he was residing in Hickman County.
He married June 8, 1817 (1819 and 1820 are also given) in Hickman County, Mary Ann Sunderland - a widow. She was the widow of Nathaniel Sunderland. Her maiden name was Reeves. She was born June 26, 1800. She drew pension for the service and death of Nathaniel Sunderland, in the War of 1812, applying for that pension March 2, 1853.
She drew pension for the service of Edward Nunnelee in the Revolution. Her application for that pension was made November 7, 1853. She also received bounty land for the service of each husband. She died near Centerville, TN, November 10, 1882.

And one more, but this was written about John Hamilton, Edward's grandson.
John H. Nunnelee
The sons of Tennessee are well represented in Ripley County, MO., and they hold conspicuous places in many pursuits which make that county a substantial star in the galaxy of Missouri's many interesting counties. John Hamilton Nunnelee is one of the prominent residents of the same and was recently solicited by the Democratic party to accept the nomination for collector. He was born in Columbia, TN, July 22, 1858, to the marriage of James M.D.L. and Lucy Jane (Fowlkes) Nunnelee. The father was a native of Hickman County TN, and the son of Edward Nunnelee, who was born in the state of Virginia. The latter, when a boy of 13, ran away to join the army and was under the command Lafayette all through the Revolutionary War. He afterward entered the Missouri Medical College, came out a surgeon and physician and practiced his profession in Hickman County, TN until his death, which occurred when he was 87 year of age. He became quite wealthy and was honored and respected by all who knew him. This esteemed citizen of Hickman County was a member of the A.F. & A.M. lodge at Nashville, TN, and held many positions of trust in his county. The father of our subject was born Jan. 17, 1826, and died Sept. 3, 1876, in Hickman County, TN, where he had made his home nearly all his life. He followed farming in his younger days and later became assistant superintendent of schools, filling this position for 2 years. After this he was salesman for a time, then in the patent right business, continuing in the latter until his death. During the Civil War he was captain of a company, Eleventh Tennessee Infantry, but was subsequently in cavalry service. He was taken prisoner at Nashville, TN, but soon after made his escape. He had been a member of the Methodist Espiscopal Church South, from the age of 17 until his death, and was an influential member. He was a Mason fraternally and a Democrat politically. Mrs. Nunnelee is still living and makes her home with her children, 5 of whom are now living, although 14 was the original number. Of these our subject was one of the youngest. He spent his school days in Hickman County, at Centerville Academy, and when sixteen branched out for himself as a farmer there. In 1881 he came to Missouri and was on the Gulf Railroad for some time. He then engaged in farming again, also the timber business, and still later sold goods. He has had charge of Doniphan Lumber Company's stock for 2 years, and is a most successful and capable business man. He was recently nominated by the Democrated party as collector of Ripley County by the largest majority of any one on the ticket. Mr. Nunnelee was married in 1884 to Miss Priscilla Jeffries, of Howell County, and they have 2 children: Edward Marcus and John Fred. In politics Mrs. Nunnelee is a Democrat, and socially a K. of H. He holds membership in the Methodist Episcopal Church.

John Fred was my grandfather. He married Audrey Vivian Moxley and they had 3 boys, John Fred, Jr., Edward Eugene, and Joe Robert Nunnelee, which was my father.
I'll send more later on Edwards parents, grand parents and great grand parents.
