Re: DUNAWAY, Thomas - VA - b. 1821

In Reply to: Re: DUNAWAY, Thomas - VA - b. 1821 by Brian Holt Evans of 1495

Thank you for looking Brian. I wrote the person you are talking about several weeks ago and, sadly, we are both stumped at about the same place. I'm fairly sure that we are talking about the same people in the Dunaway and Hancock relationship, but don't seem to have a way to tie up all the loose ends.

One of the problems is that Thomas had at least 4 wives and its very hard to tell when one of them passed away and a new one started. The other problem is that at least one of the wives, Mary (--?--), seems to be known only by her name from a previous marriage (Perkins/Purkins) and another of his wives is known only by her first name (Betsy). Sarah 'Sallie|Solle|Sollee' Hancock was apparently his 3rd marriage and probably took place in 1876, although I've seen at least one reference to this marriage being in 1886.

The search continues ...
Thank you for taking the time and looking, I really appreciate it ...
Tom
