(5) Frank's father, Walter H. NUNNELEE, was born Mar 1833 in AL and died 10 Nov 1911 in Bradley Co AR. According to the census Amanda was his 3rd wife and they married abt 1870. I do not know who the previous wives were or who was Amanda's 1st husband. Both Walter and Amanda drew CSA pensions on his service in Company "D" 20th Mississippi Infantry.

If you know anything to help reunite this family with their ancestors I would be most grateful if you would share it.

James Sr and Josephine had 3 chn live to adulthood........
(per their Texas death certificates - all surname Nunnellee)
(1) James Franklin Jr born 15 Dec 1884 Jones Co MS - died
22 Jul 1958 Jefferson Co TX. Married Jessie Ethel [DAVIS].
Has NO living children.
(2) Jodie Harry born 30 Aug 1886 Lauderdale Co MS - died
19 Jan 1945 Harris Co TX. Married Lela [CHEEK].
MAY have 1 son born 1920 living?
(3) Jesse Clyde born 17 Jul 1890 Jackson MS - died 12 Aug 1942 Travis Co TX. Married Mary [unknown].
MAY have a dtr born 1919 living? other children unknown...
NOTE: Jesse Clyde's birthplace "Jackson MS" is from his WWI draft registration and I do not know if it is Jackson County, MS or a city named Jackson in MS.

I do not known when or where James Franklin Sr died but by 1900 Josephine [McDuffie] Nunnellee was widowed and in living in Polk Co TX:
1900 Polk Co TX/8 Justice Prec/HH 236-249/pg 183b
(13 Jun 1900)
Nunnelee, Josephine P /HH/wf age 42 born Feb 1858 AL/Al/Ga + widow + 3 of 4 chn lvg
Nunnelee, James F /son/wm age 15 born Dec 1884 MS/Al/Ms
Nunnelee, Jodie H /son/wm age 13 born Aug 1886 MS/Al/Ms
Nunnelee, Jessie J /son/wm age 09 born Jul 1890 MS/Al/Ms

I am 95% certain that this is James Franklin Nunnellee Sr in the census below...
1870 Lauderdale Co MS/Meridian/HH 558-558/pg 56a
(25 Jul 1870)
NUNELLY, Walter H /HH/wm age 38 AL
Nunelly, Amanda /wf age 28 TN
Nunelly, Mary E /wf age 14 MS
Nunelly, Franklin /wm age 12 MS
Nunelly, George /wm age 14 MS
Nunelly, Wily /wm age 07 MS
Nunelly, Sarah /wf age 04 MS
Nunelly, Louise /wf age 03 MS

Walter and Amanda married 24 Jun 1870 Lauderdale Co MS and just 1 day before the 1870 census was taken.
However, Amanda 1st married a "Mr Nunnelee" so I do not know whether James was Walter or Amanda's son ???
I am certain, however, that Amanda's 1st husband was Walter's brother because..........
(a) 1880 Bradley Co AR/Pennington/HH 62-86/pg 4a
(03 Jun 1880)
NUNLEY, Walter H /HH/wm age 50 AL/Ga?/Ga?
Nunley, Amanda /wife/wf age 45 TN/Ga/Tn
Nunley, George L /Step-son/wm age 19 MS/Al/Tn <<<
Nunley, Martha S /Step-dtr/wf age 15 MS/Al/Tn <<<
Nunley, Louiza /Step-dtr/wf age 15 MS/Al/Tn <<<

(b) 1900 Bradley Co AR/Pennington/HH 279/pg 329a
(25 Jun 1900)
NUNNELEE, Walter H /HH/wm age 67 born Mar 1833 AL/Ga/Va
+ married 29 yrs
Nunnelee, Amanda /wife/wf age 67 born unk TN/Tn/Tn
+ 1 of 4 chn lvg
NUNNELEE, George L P /NEPHEW/wm age 39 born Sep 1860 <<< MS/Ga/TN + single

I do not know who Walter or Amanda's parents or siblings are
but because of the surname spelling Nunnelee and Nunnellee I am certain that Walter is a descendant of James Franklin Nunnelee or Walter Franklin Nunnelee both sons of William Womack Nunnelee and Ann [Franklin].

My money is on Walter's middle name being Hubbard or Hamilton and that his parents were Martha [Terrell] and Simeon Nunnelee son of James Franklin Nunnelee son of William Womack Nunnelee and Ann [Franklin].

One last item, Walter received a CSA pension :
"W. H. NUNNELLEE applied for a Confederate pension from Bradley Co AR in 1908, citing his service in Co D, 20th Mississippi Infantry. His application was approved on August 6, 1908. Amanda Nunnellee also applied for a Confederate pension from Bradley County in 1912, stating that her husband had died on August 10, 1911. Her application was approved on August 8, 1912. The PENSION record file NUMBER is 4039."

If anyone can share any information on the ancestry or descendants of this "orphaned" Nunnellee family I would deeply, deeply appreciate it.
