1870 census Guadalupe Co, TX:

Dunning, S.W., 36, b TN - land 800/personal 225
" N.E., 40, b TN

" Ben, 14, b TX
" Pennie, 11, b TX
" Nancy, 9, b TX
" George, 7, b TX
" John, 4, b TX
" Louisa, 2, b TX

I lose them in 1860. The online census index I use has to match the spelling exactly, and if the enumerator made a slight error in the spelling, I can't find it. You might check land records in Guadalupe Co, TX, sometimes when a man buys his first piece of land in the county the record will say where he is from.

Since you know when and where John died, a copy of his death certificate should show the names of his parents.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
