To..Marilyn King re: Phoebe dau of Dennis Dunham.
I am desended from one of Phoebe's brothers...Jonathan Donham.
My research shows Dennis to have 8 children including Phoebe and Jonathan (he is only one to carry the last name of Donham) My mother's family are the Donhams desended from Jonathan son of Dennis Dunham.
My records show Phoebe b 1787 and married twice. Her first husband was William Higgins on May 5, 1807 in Warren Co., Kentucky. Her father Dennis gave consent. The marriage was witnessed by Daniel Skaggs. They had the following children: Dorothy Higgins and another unknown. Her second marriage was to Thomas Barnett on June 22, 1812. They had two children: George Harrison Barnett and Dennis Dunham Barnett.
I am searching for the name of Dennis Dunham Sr's wife and mother to my Jonathan Donham and Phoebe and the other 6 Dunham children of Dennis Dunham: John b.1774, Timothy b. 1775, Jonathan Donham b 1781, Effie b. 1782, Hannah b. 1773, Phebe b. 1787, Dorothy b. 1789, Dennis Jr. b 1791. ( I also have info on each of those children)...all I can find for the name of Dennis Sr's wife is Dorothy. Can you help me with this?
I am stuck right here with her name and Dennis Sr' parents...I am at a stand still on my research at this point.
I will be happy to share with you my research on the Dunham/Donham family and would appreciate hearing from you and I am hoping to find the last name of Dorothy.
