    In honor and of the memory of my 5th Great Grandfather William Dunn. William married my 5th Great Grandmother Elizabeth Bradley, on December 11, 1810, Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee. I wish I knew more about him, but maybe in time.

    I can find only three children of William and Elizabeth:

    William Dunn (1810 - 1880)
    Thomas B. Dunn (1811 - 1900)
    Mary "Pollie" Dunn (1819-1890), my 4th Great Grandmother, (Find A Grave Memorial# 8867973) who married James "Jim" George.

    I found my third Great Uncle, William Henry George (Find A Grave Memorial# 143095248), the son of my 4th Great Grandparents, James and Mary "Pollie" Dunn-George, in the 1890 Veterans census in Trousdale County. He must have moved back before the 1920's when he filled out his questionnaire. That part of Tennessee where he lived started off as part of Sumner County, then part of Smith County, then part of Warren County and finally Dekalb County.

    For question #43 & #44 regarding ancestry, William answered:

    "{Mother's name} Mary Dunn {Mother's parents} William Dunn; Elizabeth Dunn." William Henry went on to say, "My Grandfather William Dunn was in the War of 1812, Butler County, {Alabama?} and I think he was in some of the Indian engagements."

    I have no specific death date or any burial location for William.

    This may be with same William Dunn of the War of 1812; Corporal, 13th Regiment of the Kentucky Militia.

    William married Elizabeth Bradley on 11 Dec 1810 in Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee. Elizabeth was born in 1795 in (Cumberland County) Virginia; died in 1870 in Wilson County, Tennessee. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Elizabeth Bradley was born in 1795 in (Cumberland County) Virginia; died in 1870 in Wilson County, Tennessee.

    My 5th Great Grandmother Elizabeth Bradley married my 5th Great Grandfather William Dunn on December 11, 1810, in Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee.

    I have found where some say Elizabeth was born in Cumberland County, Virginia. I am not sure. A number of Bradley's were living in Wilson County, Tennessee, in 1820, but I can't find any before that time. The 1880 DeKalb County, Tennessee, census, for my 4th Great Grandmother, Mary "Pollie" Dunn-George states that her mother was born in Ireland. Elizabeth Bradley Dunn was of course her mother. Just another possibility to consider.

    It would appear Elizabeth's son Thomas took it upon himself to look after and support Elizabeth until her death sometime between 1870 and 1880, in Wilson County, Tennessee. She was alive for the July 20, 1870, Wilson County, Tennessee, census, and Thomas was married December 7, 1870, after taking care of her for decades. She probably died in 1870, from the time of the census to Thomas' marriage.
