Sandi, Hugh was the son of Joseph Cunningham d. 1766-1768 in Lancaster Co. Pa. Hugh was born c. 1741 in Lancaster Pa. Later moved to Rowan County. I show Mary Kent as his third wife. I show his daughter Elizabeth plus eight other children with Mary. I have some more info but not much, contact me if you're interested. Karen

Karen, yes, I'd love any information you might have on the Cunningham's. You can e-mail me direct at gdt@jps.net. Elizabeth Cunningham, daughter of Hugh and Mary, married John Trantham. The Trantham's are my husbands Grandmother's line.
Thank you. Sandi

I too am researching the Cunningham family that settled in Lancaster Co., PA and then migrated to Rowan Co NC. The direct ancestor
of my husban was Paul Cunningham, that eventually, he would move on to Knox County TN. Have you found any data on Paul in your research of this family?

I have not come across the name Paul yet. But I would certainly be interested in comparing notes. Do you have any dates for him? Karen Morrell

Hi! Do you have any Alexanders in your line? Am seeking info on parents/siblings of Alexander G. Cunningham, b. 1821 in NC, raised in IN, later lived in MO. Do you know names of your Hugh's siblings? (One of my alexander's grandsons was named Hugh.)

Hugh's Father was Joseph Cunningham born
about 1710 in PA. died about 1865 in PA.
Hugh's Mother unknown.
Joseph's children are:
James born abt 1736 died 1774 in PA.
Joseph born 1738 died 1801.
Martha born about 1740 in NC.
Hugh born 1760 in PA died 20 Sept 1824 in NC
Jane born about 1762 in NC.
George born about 1764 in PA died about 1770

This is about all the info I have.

Edwin, Just a thought. I show Birth dates of James, Joseph, Martha the same as you do, however, I show Hugh was born ca 1741 and married Elizabeth Smith in 1774. Jane was born ca 1762 and married in 1769 and George born ca 1744. This makes a little more since. Hugh married Mary Kent 10 April 1780. He died between 4 Sept 1817 and Nov 1817.
Your Nancy was sister to my Elizabeth Cunningham. Elizabeth married John Trentham in 1819. By the way, I do show Nancy married William Cunningham on 25 Dec 1816. He was born in 1801 in NC. They had no children that I know of. Then married Levi in 1825 You probably know all this. I was also told Joseph Cunningham born ca 1710 may have been married to an Unknown Dupree born abt 1712. No proof that I have. Joseph's will was dated 6 Mar 1769 and probated 8 Mar 1769 so must have died before Mar 1769. Also was told that Joseph's father could be a James Cunningham born abt 1693 and died 1743. Mother could be Sara Belle born 1695 died 1711. Just another part of the puzzle.
Please keep me in mind if you find out anything else. Thanks, Sandi gdt@jps.net
