I'm related to David Dunn who married Sarah Jempson, a Cherokee Indian in Gaston, NC. Attached is a picture of her. I have another of her with her daughter Lucy Long and Lucy's children. (One of which, Violetta Mae married a Payseur) It's 1.5 MB, so if I know you're related I'll send you a disk or CD.
David was from Gaston, NC born abt 1832, and died 28 Jul 1863 at Chimberazoo hospital in Richmond, from wounds from the Battle of Chancellorsville. He left behind his wife Sarah Jempson, and two children: Nancy (b:1857) and James (b:1859) Dunn.
If you know anything at all about this family, I am anxious to hear from you. I saw someone posted once that David had Nancy from a wife other than Sarah, and he married a Sarah as his second wife. I have not been able to reach this person. We really want to know more about David and his family.
The following is about some Confederate Dunns from NC. There are about 10 NC Confederate Dunn's buried in Richmond, VA.
I live near the Spotsylvania Courthouse Confederate Battlefield, near Fredericksburg, VA. I have a family member named Tilman Jenkins buried there. I had a lot of relatives from VA and NC, and took pictures of the following tombstones which had family surnames, but I cannot find any link. If you are related or know of any of these men, Iâ€™ll send you a jpg. copy of the picture. I also have a roster of the Cemetery. Please note the new email address: email@example.com
